Edging My Flowerbed

Edging keeps grass out of flower beds,
 makes mowing easier and
 improves the appearance of your property



I used a board to get a straight line;
 a flexible water hose can also be used for curves

Cut Straight down


Cut all the edge

Lift out the Grass creating a trench
This will  creates an airspace.
The roots of the grass will dry;
 preventing them to grow in your flower bed.


Shake of the excess soil back into the flower bed
Discard the Grass


I use this hand shovel to clean out the groove




All finished. I put Cedar Mulch to cut down on weeding.
