Having a hard time weed eating around screen rooms when the screen runs all the way to the ground and the grass goes all the way to the screen.
There must be a technique for this that I haven't tried, no? I don't want to replace a bunch of screens so if anyone has any advice it would be appreciated.
:confused:

you could spray and kill the grass about an inch out from the screen, then with the trimmer you could just tapper down to the dead grass

Thought about that. I don't know how my customers would take the strip of dead grass.....

Thanks for the response.

A piece of luan cut the long way about 8" high as a backer. I havent done that but i know people who have.

this is what i do also, just a thin spray line with roundup and i think it gives it a real neat look. remember, just spray 1/2 inch to 1 inch width along the screening. any bigger then it will look bad and the home owner will probably complain. :drinkup:
