    Hey Guys,

    I have a residential mulch job tomorrow and wanted to get some feed back on the correct way to edge a bed. I have a trenchblade that I will use and want to know what else needs to be done to enhance the edge. I will be refreshing the edges already in place.

    Thanks,

    Rick

    to refresh existing bed edges i always for general maintenance:
    1-flip my string trimmer upside down.
    2-let the string catch the edge of the grass/edge
    3-walk to my left around the bed.

    to refresh like what i'm thinking you mean:
    1- get a bed edger (or a mexican, wheelbarrow, and a flat head shovel;is cheaper w/ same results)
    2-either use the shovel or the edger to dig a trench at the edge of the bed
