    New at the biz here. What would you guys suggest to be the best way to attack about 300 linear feet of landscape beds that are already freshly mulched. They want a nice clean edge.

    Use a Turfco Edge R Rite with a 30 degree blade. set it for 2 inches deep. It will cut a nice staright wall towards the lawn and a 30 degree slope towards the bed. You can go deeper up to 4 inches but that is not needed and it is extra work with extra dirt to haul away.

    the edge r rite cuts like a sod cutter so there is not dirt thrown into the new mulch or bed. You just use a garden hoe and rake up what is cut and scoop it into a wheel barrow to remove. Clippings also make good material for filling in holes in other lawns or started a nursery. You can keep a barrel of them on the trailer for repairs.
