Edging 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 carriage roads, so they look crisp and clean. 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 the turf as the edger is pushed along the road where it meets the grass border. For this chore, we used our Troy-Bilt TBE550 Lawn Edger. It works really well for creating that beautiful, smooth edge.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
