Oly-Ola Sales, Inc. is founded. Newly-designed landscape edging products, Edg-King™ and Edg-Queen™ are launched.

Made heavy duty with four horizontal grooves, Edg-King is installed with railroad nails at a 45 degree angle to stay firmly planted in the ground. Rolled and in a box, Edg-Queen was made primarily for garden center customers.
