Well, as many of you know, I am in a squeeze for cash and am trying to decide which is a better investment-edging or blowing. I want to get a blower for cleanup after I'm all done mowing and maybe for fall leaf cleanup. I also would like a stick edger for those people with loads of cash that would like the lawn looking perfect (mowing, edging, trimming every week). Most of my customers only want me to trim every 2 weeks (don't ask me why, they just do). I tried cutting through sod with my trimmer but that didn't really work, so I guess you have to cut the sod with an edger, than cut whatever blades of grass that grows over that edge with a trimmer every week (vertical edging). The only thing that is holding me back from an edger is price and safety. I guess I'm kind of a wimp but a sharp blade whirling around pretty fast kinda scares me. Some friends of mine that live down the street from one account I have chucked a couple of rocks at me last night so I wouldn't want to be distracted with an edger. Anyway, what would you recommend for my situation, blow or edge?
