    as often as necessary to keep property looking good and customer happy. i have a few retired customers who actaully want it done bi-monthly. That's fine it's just absorbed into there mowing cost.

    All soft and hard edges are cut every time I mow always have always will. And that includes when I lived in N.Y.

    Every time I mow, I don't want to be connected to a property that isn't trimmed and edged.

    I used to do it once a month, and just use the string trimmer to keep it clean between times, but now that I have a stick edger, I just buzz down it every week real quick. It's faster than the trimmer thing, and much more efficient, too. Then I just charge a monthly fee for all the edgings. (Still amounts to the cost of the one edging).

    I also edge every time I mow. Then I go back with my trimmer to taper the edges slightly.

    Every time I mow. In summer with a stick edger and winter with a string trimmer just to keep it touched up and looking crisp.
