Edging the Carriage Roads in Spring

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 Bedford, New York farm, my outdoor grounds crew is busy edging the interior carriage roads, so they look crisp and clean - it's a task we do once a year. Edging roads, lawns, and around garden beds can be done manually with a variety of spades, but depending on the size of the space, it can become very time-consuming. Rotary edgers, powered by gasoline, electricity, or portable 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 road where it meets the grass border. For this chore, we used our Little Wonder Power Edger and our STIHL Kombi-System Lawn Edger. Both work really well for creating that beautiful, smooth edge.
