    Alright guys, we all know stripes are king on LS but lets take it up a notch. Lets see them edges.... Bed edges, crete edges, etc....

    Here is one of a recent mulch install i did

    FYI, the image loader on LS sucks big time so i had to crop it down. Hope it didn't reduce the pic quality.

    Along for the ride on this thread. Tons of hideous scalped to zero, moss clinging to life with a thin edge of soil protruding over the concrete edge....in my service areas.

    I suck at edging onto hard surfaces, then again I only use a string trimmer. Better leave the pics to the pros

    I really only use a blade edger to establish an edge or make a clean edge in the spring. I always clean out the fresh cut edge with the string trimmer flipped vertically and walk backwards.

    Some of my work from today. I use a husqvarna 125e stick edger for all the edging.

    Looks good guys, keep them pics coming.

    To me i think bed edges really separate the men from the boys in landscaping.
