    Yes it is popular especially down south. No some much here in the Midwest though. The only thing I can say is make sure you really know your market before you purcashe the equipment. A friend of mine is sitting on a machine now that was used 2 times.

    Ruiz,
    By all means do it. I have had so many customers landscape and not border their beds (or just a little black plastic runner) and you get a lot of grass you can't trim or you'll cut down a tulip or hasta (good 'ol Nebreaska plants). I just about beg them to put someting in along the lines of stone, brick-tilted-on-edge. Concrete would be the bomb. I say do it.

    Ruiz,
    I guess I should answer your question. No I have not. I just got excited. I LOVE trimming up against a good solid border, it looks great. You have my encouragement.

    It's popular down south, but with cold temps. and frost heaving up here in the north, I don't see how it would last unless a proper base was installed under it.

    Concrete edging is hot here! I would go for it if I were you. Be the first to start the trend. We are looking to purchase a set up now. Good Luck.
