How is that taper being cut? String? I prefer a straight cut made with blades NOT STRING. Sorry for yelling. Mishandling of the grass via butchering it along the edges undoes all of the efforts made to cut at the correct height, with sharp machinery and the correct machinery. Butchered grass is susceptible to invasion by weeds and I rather prevent weeds in st augustine when possible given that the most effective herbicides are either RUP or no longer labeled.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
