    But it wasn't me who started this thread.. :D Anyway, From TX, I've done the same deal before and it was OK, But the star blades will do as good a job, with out bogging the edger more.. Green Pastures, It seemed to bog a stick edger, but it does work great on a powerful W/B edger ( running double "normal" blades )....

    BTW, From TX, where in Houston are ya'll?

    Ive done but I dont do it all the the time. I do it the last few times before winter when I go out once a month just so it lasts longer. The blades dont last longer just get 2 worn out blades in the same amount of time as it takes to wear out one and it was harder on the machine.

    I have a request to put a 1" edging on the lawns. Can anyone give me an idea on how to do this. Currently my idea is to rent a trencher and use it (like burying invisible fencing) 1" wide but about 4"-5" deep
