One to three times a season, the rest of the time I can duplicate that edge with the trimmer.

Not trying to be a smart butt, but as necessary. Maybe once a month but I don't do it on any set schedule. Maintain weekly with string trimmer. Not many accounts around here have hard edges to cut. Mostly it's asphalt and that's done with a string trimmer.

Not often enough for my competition I love seeing the 3" gap the inexperienced guys have dug down a sidewalk with the trimmer.

we edge in everything every week with trimmers, rarely use and edger as it does not do an nice job like a trimmer at clean cutting the grass. we use an edger for removing dirt and overgrown lawn edges. but we have almost only cool season grasses, if i had to mow warm season grasses every day that have stolons i would use the edgers prob every week.
