    I edge, trim and then mow, blow clean. On st. Augustine, I personally get a cleaner, more defined edge when I edge first.

    I wondered the same, I switched to mowing first and trimming later after getting my ztr. Keeps me from trimming too much trying to compensate for where I can't get the mower. I spread the excess grass with my blower in the end

    For me it depends on whether it's a clean-up (first service) or if it's been / being regularly serviced by me or another LCO. Clean-ups I edge first because I can run over the cutoff's with the Dixie and dust em. Anything else get's mowed first then edged, trimmed, blown.

    I agree with you Yamaha...edge, mow, trim, blow! It works very well on our accounts in the Queen City.

    Trim and then mow. Usually I don't have to get the blower out if I'm halfway careful.

    Still haven't edged in 17 years.

    I must be a scrub, huh???

    It depends on what floats your boat, try one, then the other, see which you like best.

    As for me: mow + trim + blow + round-up

    mow-trim-blow rhymes too.
