    I had never even heard of the edgit disc until i started at work this year. I used to mow for myself with just a regular ryobi string trimmer. From doing this sometimes i would take dirt off so the edge of the yard is pulling back away from the curb a good 2-4 inches. I wanna take it back out but the problem is my yard is 3 inches higher than the curb...so if i put dirt on there it'll just wash down the side with the next big rain. What else is there?

    when i first started i had a job similar to what you are describing that some other lco had left behind for me to repair. what i did was take top soil and fill the gap as much i could. then pack it down either with a tamper, or the handle of shovel, or even just stepping real hard with your foot. plant new grass seed and fertilize. It's not a fast process by any means and the ground will ultimately be slanted unless you want to stake down a 2x4 along the sidewalk and fill the gap then wait for the grass seeds to germinate which will help the soil retain it's shape.
