    How do you guys prevent grass getting into garden beds?

    When I use the grass trimmer, it seems that the grass trimmings go onto the garden beds :(

    I then have to get out my blower and just blow the grass clippings out onto the lawn!

    Any ideas, suggestions?

    I trim left to right, right to left.. doesnt matter which way i go!

    I always trim so the trimmer will throw it away from beds, but sometimes the wind blows it in the beds anyways. Then no choice but blow the beds out.

    If there's no border(curbing,bricks,etc.)I just stand in the bed when using the trimmer.Otherwise I just do the best I can.If the customer is SUPER picky,the best idea I've seen is to have someone follow you around with a blower;blow and trim simultaneously.
    I don't worry alot about getting a little bit of grass in the beds because it quickly turns brown and blends in with the mulch.I do try to minimize it,though.
