Not to mention you risk hitting sprinkler heads/bodies along sidewalks, etc... I have a large HOA and in their contract it states Stick Edgers are not allowed, and in reality I can do anything a stick edger can with a line trimmer as quickly, and as straight and nice without risking damage.... I see a response like the one above about stick edgers being the one and only way and have to think you have very little experience in this business...
