View Full Version : Bed Edging

Is this the BEST way to edge a bed? Could you also use a stick edger and achieve this look? (besides an edging shovel!)

Looks like a good idea, but I bet the price tag isn't very inviting :)

It looks like it does a great job but it also looks like its too much machine for just making edges, unless maybe you do work for a golf course!

It just depends on the amount of work you have. I would guess if you do more then 500 yards a year of mulch you should start thinking about a powered edger.

I have used a bed edger on my own house and will do it again this year. The big downfall I found outside of hitting every downsprout drain that was better less than 5 inches, is it leaves a small mound of dirt in the bed that you have to spread back out or remove altogether. You could possibly use a stick edger to clean an existing edge up but I wouldn't to redifine or make new.

I simply use a Power-Trim/McLane landscpae edger once a month or more often depending on the season or type of grass.
