    Ok I know this is a pretty simple issue but I am just getting started here and would like to know what you guys suggest.

    I am starting a new garden so I have to till it up, plant then mulch and bed edge. So I was wondering is it best to till and plant then bed edger or mulch before I bed edge?

    You really have no idea, do you?

    I suggest you work for someone for a while to get some experience before you make a lot of people really p*ssed off because you don't know what you are doing.

    Edge first, then mulch- to answer your question. :rolleyes:

    Edge out your beds first. Edging is actually part of the prep work prior to mulching. :)
