Looking for commercial-grade/6-inch metal edging in OKC

Does anyone know where in OKC I could find 6-inch metal edging instead of the 4-inch version sold by all the big box stores?

I've called: Home Depot, Lowes, Westlake/ACE, TLC & Pre-Cure and no one carries 6-inch (not even online) and no one can tell me where the pros get theirs. I left a message with a professional landscaper to ask her where to find it but the ground is SO PERFECT right now for deep edging work I wish I could buy it this weekend and get to it!

Any clues?

I don't know if they will have it, but I would try American Plant Products (405) 787-4833

Maybe call John Deere, I think they are on Memorial Rd in Edmond. They are usually to the trade only but might be willing to point you in the right direction.

Thanks again, All:

I ended up calling both places--American had 6-inch but only sold wholesale; Deere wasn't sure what to rec other than TLC. Looks like I'll have to go through a professional landscaper.

For what it's worth, I wanted 12" wide strips to attempt to contain some raspberries. I ended up purchasing big sheets of corrugated metal (generic roofing stuff) and cut it up. As long as you're careful with the raw edges, it seems to be a pretty workable solution, and a lot less expensive than the "official" edging.
