What Is Lawn Edging And What Are The Benefits?
Lawn edging is the process of trimming back the lawn at the edge to separate the lawn from a hard surface such as a sidewalk, pavers, or a flowerbed. We use a mechanical edger which has a blade on the end of a pole that quickly trims back the edges.
It may be a relatively simple task, but that doesn’t mean you should go around skipping it. You should be edging your lawn every time you cut the grass, to maintain a clean edge and an overall manicured look to your lawn.
Maintaining your lawn’s health through lawn edging is important for curb appeal and adding value to your home, but not only does it add value through aesthetics, it adds value by keeping weeds and pests away.
Edging your lawn at flower beds and sidewalks is especially crucial in keeping weeds from growing, as the edge provides a barrier to weeds trying to thrive. A clean edge also means a healthier lawn overall, which keeps pests from thriving as well.
What Is The Process Of Edging A Lawn?
To edge a lawn, like we said, is fairly simple and self-explanatory. As a business completing many of these lawn care services a day, we prefer to change out our blades once a week to maintain the cleanest cut and pristine edges your lawn needs.
We usually start edging up the right side of the driveway and all around to the back and then front left side of the lawn. We usually like to keep a thinner edge next to driveways and sidewalks, and a thicker, one inch edge next to flower beds and pavers.
We hope we’ve given you a better understanding of how lawn edging affects the overall health of your lawn. It can be criminally underrated, but is still so important! We would love to help you if you are in need of lawn care services in the North Port, Florida area, so give us a call today!
