Do any of you guys use an edger to outline your mulch beds?

We also use a edger it is called miguel and a ditch spade. Then like dbpropertymanagement said use the string trimmer to keep it looking good all year.

To keep that border defined and the lawn healthy, a good edge will ideally rise 3"-5" above a 2" layer of mulch. Otherwise, that mulch will end up in the lawn edge, killing the grass and redefining the edge so that in order to dress it every spring, you end up edging out farther yet. Mulch looks nice though.

speaking of edges...i mow for some people in a pretty nice area. they call me two weeks ago and say hey can you come mow on wednesday (i mow it on tuesday normally) so i said sure, since its slow season. anyways a get there wednesday and ill be damned, theyve had some landscaping done! anyway. im looking at the edges, and they cut them so deep! their about 4 inches down and there fore the grass over hangs. it looks terrible! ill have to get you guys some pictures of this travesty. its a landscaper a home builder uses...just rediculous. the home owner asked what i thought, and i said you dont want to know what i think...she pushed and i said well that was a big waste of money, and i said i need to get back to work..

If the edge is nice and clean with good shape, a deeper cut gives infinitely more definition and always looks nicer. However, the grass needs to be cut with a string trimmer held vertically each mowing to keep it looking sharp. All of my wealthier clients vastly prefer it. 4" should not be too much unless they did a bad job cutting it. Do you have a photo?

no i should be going to cut it today, if its dry enough. ill try and get one. it looks absolutely terrible to me. its just a straight 4 inch drop. maybe its just me, but i would never do it like that.

I bet that looks terrible with metal edging. I have always thought metal looks wrong in a landscape like that anyhow, too un-natural for defining the edge. Stone or a cut edge is nicer.

agreed! i think the stone edges are great looking.
