Bed edger at angle?

Any of you guys know if you can place a bed edger/trencher at an angle? I'm starting a landscape job of putting bricks at slight angle throughout the edge and would be awesome if it is possible so that I can have a consistently angled trench throughout

Use Mortar to set them in.....

If you aren't doing that anyways, your wasting your time.

Yep doing that already.. But would still be nice that way u have a better chance at keeping the height/angle consistent. I mean I've done it tons of times by hand but just thought this might speed it up on a long stretch.

I see what you are saying then. But if you are mortaring them in, then it's going to be tough to come up with a solution, orrrrrrrr....

Use your bed edger to cut the trench, then take a walk-behind sidewalk edger with angle adjustment and trim the edge to get your angle.
