Edging... The What?
Edging is the vertical cutting of a lawn's edges in order to create a neat perimeter surrounding the lawn. It is a detailing procedure that professionals do to increase the lawn's curb appeal.
Edging... The Why?
Edging serves as an additional barrier to prevent grass roots from invading neighboring areas (such as plant beds, or driveways).
Edging... The How?
When edging, you need to be very careful not to damage the driveway, street, or the turf. It is very crucial that you only edge where it is needed. We recommend that you avoid edging using a line trimmer as debris may damage properties or hurt people nearby. Use only proper equipment and a lot of precaution. Our practice is to err on the side of caution. We rather close the entire lot or walkway to avoid injuries rather than leaving it open and have somebody get hurt. Once you have closed down the perimeter, start slow and make sure you are walking on a straight line. Concentrate on the distance of your edger and the turf. Ensure that you know where exactly the blade will hit. Give a slow and gentle squeeze on the throttle and only give what is required. If you push too hard, you will dull the blades right away and waste gas. When you are about to hit the corner, go very slow until you are about to hit the edge, then stop. Position yourself on the adjacent side, again starting slow, and repeating the process all over again until you are finished.
