Beat the Heat Lawn Service

Ok guys im going to kinda copy redmax man and just make a thread for all my current pics and any future ones to come. Please let me know what you think. Remember that most of the grass is st. augustine so striping is very difficult if not impossible.

Ya I know, edging with a trimmer is so easy when you get used to it. All the grass there was cut at 3.5 inches and bagged.

just checking...i think a trimmer leaves a better edge (maintenance wise) than an edger.

OMG look at those edges and with a trimmer and in that bad St Augustine grass. You must be a genius .... All these guys on lawnsite need to take notice, those stupid edgers are a waste of money. And they want you to tell them how to do it
