    How often do you guys use an edger v. your line trimmer to edge your accounts. I guess it probably depends on what your customer wants, but just curious if most take the time to use an edger or not.

    on all of my lawns, i use the stick edger to edge the driveway and landscape beds, some yards i can use the string trimmer to edge since i have that grove already, but i do it weekly. makes the clients property look good!

    Stick edger.

    Used a line trimmer first year until the next season. When you get good with a stick edger and you use it every week or every other week you can pretty much run with it while edging. But get one with a little extra power. The first one I used was an Echo PE200. It did a good job but It did not have enough power for my needs. I now have an Shindaiwa LE260 an I love it.

    I hear ya..

    Anyways, I always use the blade stick edger, IMO it's faster and looks way better.
