I thought you might get into some of the various techniques. I have some that I've never discussed here at Lawnsite.

I thought the most common name was weed whipper. I guess that's because most people beat their grass with one instead of cutting it. LOL


I think the article is fine, but more detail regarding techniques would be beneficial if you're trying to help folks learn how to use one correctly.

Right. That's why I explained that in the first paragraph. And you misspelled trimming, since we're making corrections. :-p

Thanks for reading, guys. I'll be adding more in the future.

It's definitely "trimming" with a "trimmer" or "line trimming" with a "line trimmer" down here. At least that's how you can tell the difference between a pro and the guy working part time. And no I'm not knocking the part timer. Doesn't matter to me. But I digress. Any help that someone can bestow is a good thing.
