    Very much the opposite, one piece spade and handle, all alloy steel. Mine weights in around 15lbs and can be used as a pry bar. I find it great for planting as it will cut through roots well and bust through compacted clay.

    BTW why do all your post have the waving smiley?

    This may be a dumb question but did you call and have the utilities marked before trenching your edge? I've always been told to call anytime I stick a shovel in the ground no matter the depth. It just seems like an inconvenience especially when you're edging the flower bed and the ultimate goal is to make the yard look nice then you have all of these utility paintings over the yard.

    I call for utility marking when doing hardscaping, irrigation and lighting. I only dug down about 2-3inches. All utilities here are pretty run down the sides of the property lines

    Got the two back beds mulched. Homeowner now wants a price to topdress the yard with sand and install some drainage to help dry out the back yard.
