A few of the residentials I maintain have some things in the yard such as wooden chairs and other crap. I have given up on telling the people to move them so I would just cut around them, they got the point pretty quick. Problem solved. Now I see more and more of these little (foot tall) wire fences around the beds and shrubs and almost any border. I personally don't like the look of them and now that I cut yards that contain them, I have found out the true pita about them. It is impossible to trim them with ANY trimmer. Even at half throttle if you even nick them with the line it grabs it and a.screws up the trimmer line, or b. rips and bends the fence out of the ground. Then I thought, okay, i'll just take them out, trim, put them back. gets to be a drag when it triples your trim time EVERY week . I can't be spending a half hour cuting the entire lawn and the same amount just trimming it, not to forget the blowing after. Although I might as well not trim at all if I am going to leave islands of grass around every border. My question is, what would you do?
