Edging and Weeding the Carriage Roads at My Farm

This time of year is great for starting all those lawn maintenance chores.

Here at my farm, my outdoor grounds crew is busy edging and weeding the interior roads, so they look crisp and clean - it's a task we do once a year. Edging the lawns can be done manually with a variety of spades, but depending on the size of the yard, it can become quite time-consuming. Rotary edgers, powered by gasoline or electricity, reduce the time it takes to complete this job. These machines feature a spinning blade that cuts through turf as the edger is pushed along the grass border. We edge the roads with a Little Wonder Power Edger. It works really well for creating that beautiful, smooth edge.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
