    Anyone trim around sprinkler heads while starting up in the spring (other than pulling grass out of maxis)? Any good suggestions for sprinkler head trimmers?

    They sell a device made for that . Turf equipment and supply in Maryland carries them. I never have had the need to trim around them.

    We do it on all our spring startups. Customers love to see it

    We have both a 4" for rotors and 3" for sprays.

    That's what I was thinking... I've seen one lawn cutting company do it for spring cleanup and I figured it has to be a nice touch... Can you point me in the direction of a good brand that can do a nice job quickly? I've found two online so far... one is super cheap one is more expensive...

    why not just use an old vegtable can?

    economical, works great, and if the labor loses it, who cares.

    John Deere carries one which have no name on it. They are red and come ina few different sizes. They run about 25 bucks and you do this all standing up

    I made one! Picked up a 4" hole saw @ HD and welded a 1/2" rod to it and another 1/2" rod to make the handle. $20 total I think the 4" is too small and will probally redo it with a 5" hole saw. It works great!
