Sure do, this is the only "new edge" we are doing here as in taking out sod. There has got to be a couple thousand feet of edging there. We usually use a bed edger but this year we started really early and its to wet. Not to mention I like hand edging better for the fact its crisper and deeper. Plus last year I destroyed a 300 dollar "edging blade" on a brown bed edger. We will be doing alot of work here this year "as we do every year". Its a great place to work at and a great family to work for. I didnt take before pictures today, and I really havent taken as many pictures as last year due to my hip surgery..

This is the first productive thing I have done this month with my hip and all. My brother cuts our neighbors yard so I cut the back yard with the turf tracer.

Sorry to hear about your hip. I hope you are feeling better. I was wondering what model blower rack you have there? Where did you get it and how is it working out? I need new ones and have older model stihl blowers also. Thanks

Thanks for the kind words, its a trimmer trap st-1. I bought it used off a guy on this site and painted it black, I dont know if you can still get it or not but I did find it on there web site. http://www.trimmertrap.com/getting-s...ta-articles/81

For the record its a great rack and I have never had any issues with it, works great. Only thing I wish was I had the br600! When I got the 380 the 600 wasnt even out yet

Small 1 day job we did yesterday. The back yard is/was a mess, we ripped out the small bed with the tree and hostas in it. trimmed back the ivy from coming over the wall. Reedged the bed to the left and mulched it. Also trimmed the bushes in the back and the front. After I slit seeded the yard to thicken it up a bit since it was so bare. They also have a drain by the left side of the porch, we dug out the large sea shore stone next to it and planted grass. We then top dressed the two replanted sections with mushroom manure
