- We recommend cutting bed edges at a 4” depth with a spade or a half moon edger.
- Softly flowing lines are aesthetically pleasing. Keep the edging line gentle and smooth. Corrective edging may be required to correct imperfections or irregularities. Guard against excessive turf removal unless you plan to make a major change in the shape of the bed.
- Straight edges should be set off permanent objects – either parallel or perpendicular. Set a string line for best results.
- Remove all edging scraps from bed surfaces – especially turf and weeds. Soil spoils may be left but should be broken up and raked smooth prior to mulching.
- Step back and look at the edging from a distance to be sure you have created a line that is pleasing to the eye.
