    Working on a tender and in the scope of work it calls for,

    Has anyone ever see a guide or guard like that ? or know who makes something like that ?.

    In over 20 years we've Never Ever had a single complaint about damaging headstones because sometimes we use a piece of rubber truck mudflap to protect them when they're very overgrown but this is a condition of the tender.

    If thats the case you have 1/4" that aint getting trimmed. None of my Cemeterys call for this.

    You could use an edgit (www.edgit.com) You would just need to make sure that the string did not go past the disc and you would be just fine. Of course, the grass would not all get trimmed but it would work perfectly in your situation.

    Yes, it's rather odd.
    The Old minister at this church retired and a new young one took over last year. From what I understand, At his last church the contractor did a lot of damage to the old Sandstone and Limestone markers.
    I may give that Edgeit a shot or just rivet a strip of polyurethane or Aluminum to a stock deflector.
