Using trimmer to edge?

Hey guys, just wondering if you use a trimmer to edge sidewalks and beds or if you switch to a edger for edging? I know that it saves time to edge with the string trimmer and if you do it enough you can get really good at it. I don't use a edger because it takes to much time to switch over to a different machine for something that one machine can do.

Turn the trimmer upside down and to the edges on beds and sidewalks. Works really well. Flip trim

Not as fast because you have to swich from your trimmer to edger. Means you have to go back to get it from trailer, then start it .

I think it looks terrible when people use a trimmer to edge.
