    What is the best way to prevent rocks from flying out from the lawn mower and trimmer I know it happens but whats the best defense, like not mowing or trimming near gravel, and if you dont trim near gravel what do you do?

    Its part of the biz, if it scares you, leave the guard on.

    tilt it to the right when you trim and it will minimize rocks from getting thrown back on you.
