Alright, before the weather gets too warm here and we hit the lake and river, I need to get a little yard work done.

Does any have or know if there is a machine to do Spade Edging? Someone had told me there was something that could be bought or rented to save the time of doing it by hand with a shovel.

The first time we edged we did it by hand and even though it looked awesome, it took a long time.

Let me know what you use or heard about.

Thanks!

I've rented one of these before: http://www.brownmfgcorp.com/bededger/index.html

Works like a champ - much less time involved.

Thanks BF!

Our entire lawn is edged like that and I did it with a weedeater with the string vertically, in the early spring when the ground is moist and soft`many moons ago. But remember, as you trim every time you mow, you will eat away a minute amount of grass and soil along the edge and your natural area will grow 2" or 3" a year depending on how aggressive you are with your weedeater. Then I just mow along the edge of the natural area and I have a nice square cut along the edge.

I used to mow my grandfathers lawn with something similar, but when I was finished mowing it we would cut holes in it and practice our putting strokes. He had one of the nicest putting surfaces I had ever set foot on.

Now I am completely lost.:confused: How does that lawnmower help you edge the lawn. UMP is a Yankee and even he is having trouble understanding. Does Microsoft have a program that will auto translate Yankee for us southern folks. :D ;)
