    Like the fake walls you put in the ground to keep the mulch in side the arrea, they sell them at home depo and lowes

    And the customer just now told me to ripe it out

    I'd say use the truck also. That plastic edging is no match for horsepower.

    tell the homeowner you can only weed-eat an edge on that portion of the lawn unless he/she wants to remove the old, leftover fence pieces. Or, if he/she would rather you take it out, charge them accordingly.
