    bi-weekly curbside edging?

    thats a 1nce a year service around here maximum

    but i would say doing it once a month might be worth doing. that is something to consider.

    You edge your lawns once a year?

    I only edge them when a customer requests the service. but having itt done every so often. once a month or so would keep it looking good i think. part of a premium package. a guy who hasent joined the thread yet does it every 2 weeks. i think that might not be needed. but once a month might keep the lawn looking sharper.

    Edging a lawn should be part of your maintenance in my opinion, and at least every other week is standard here...

    I can edge my lawns with a string trimmer yes, the only time I use a blade edger is a new customer who has never edged and such

    I usualy call it trimming. using the string trimmer on all of the edges. pavement, landscapes. i do it on every mow other than real super slow hot parts of the season sometimes.

    i mean using a blade edger to make that nice 1/4 ish gap between the cement and turf

    I think I understand what you're saying. I only use the edger once a month to keep the edge on the sidewalk opened up. I use the string trimmer any other time.
