Sorry I don't have any personal expierence<br>but this is the proper tool for high production bed edging.<p>You might have to do some hunting to find one to rent in your local area.

If youve ever edged beds by hand youll know what a bear it is. I have a great deal of time behind bed edgers they make it fun to edge. make sure you put the front wheels in the higest postition this inturn puts the blade as far down as it will go, i like my edges deep. Youll need a spade for areas that are tight but it wont be much. when you are done you (or someone else) will have to mulch because it will look bad if it isnt. go to whatever lengths nesesary to get one, it will be well worth the time. good luck

What type of edging are you talking about, planting beds or drives and walks?

If you`re talking walks and drives a tanaka three wheeled edger is about as good as it gets but pricy ($700+) Bed edging is a different animal.
