I did not read all the post but what did you use on the bed edge by the mail box it looks great.
I am thinking about adding a bed edger to my collection but not sure what the best option is. I like the Turf Teq but $5000+ is a little much for a part timer.
Do you work alone all the time or get help when needed.

I am also curious what you used to edge the beds. Looks swell.

Just called Brown inc on a bed edger not bad on price. You can trade out the cutting head and trench also.

Looks good Kajun!

Nothing makes a better edge than a good ol flat blade shovel. Even when I rent a bed edger, I always end up going back over some spots with the spade edge shovel.

Not a big fan of red mulch but it looks nice in the applications you used it on, Good choice. Also F250 looks awesome pulling the gooseneck.
