    OK, cool, i got ya, yea i don't think the trenchblade is made to go deep enough for the way you used to do bed lines. The idea with the trenchblade is to be efficient, cost effective, and look good when it is done. It has worked out great for us, but different people do things in many different ways and it's real hard to say what the best way is especially when you are dealing with mother nature. I know that landscape techniques differ in various parts of the country and at various levels of skill and experience.

    Just edge it out with a spade, spray the grass with round up pro, then use the spade to cut the grass out like a sod-cutter would after the grass dies. Use the quick acting round up and keep your money you would use for rental in your pocket. Don't forget to use a pre emergent in the beds.
