    Do you have any tips on how to keep trimmer clippings out of the mulch beds when trimming and edging around them? I could really use the help.

    When trimming around beds, pull the trimmer along so the direction of the head spins such that it cuts the grass and throws it away from the bed, I believe you should be trimming from left to right, thats with an echo anyways. they spin clockwise.

    Left to right, and get used to holding the throttle handle in your left hand with your right holding the "shaft" handle.
