We use string trimmers and they work well as long as you maintain the jobs every week during growing season.

The only weed wackin I do is sitting here in front of my computer looking at all you guys' brand new $12,000.00 Zero turns, but if your wanting to edge, like bill said go get a stick edger, you can buy an Echo for $200 at a dealer or at Home Depot.

Happy Wackin!!!
