    I see a lot of landscapers using weed wackers to edge grass, do any of you guys use this method?

    no i don't use "weed wackers", i either use a string trimmer or a stick edger. depending on the type of grass.

    We use string trimmers and they work well as long as you maintain the jobs every week during growing season.

    Make sure you use the correct name. Most lawn care peaple are idiots and confuse easily.

    The only weed wackin I do is sitting here in front of my computer looking at all you guys' brand new $12,000.00 Zero turns, but if your wanting to edge, like bill said go get a stick edger, you can buy an Echo for $200 at a dealer or at Home Depot.

    Happy Wackin!!!
