Edging the Carriage Roads

It’s always important to keep up with lawn maintenance chores, especially during this time of year when everything is growing so quickly.

Here at my farm, my outdoor grounds crew is busy edging the interior carriage roads, so they look crisp and clean. 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, electricity, or portable backpack battery 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. For this task, we used our new STIHL Kombi-System Lawn Edger. It works really well for creating that beautiful, smooth edge.
