A lawn Edger is a machine that we use to trim the edges of our garden and gutters to form a boundary between the grass surface and the sand or pavement surface giving it a unique clean finish.
A lawn edger is basically much smaller than a Lawn Mower it can either manually operated or machine operated.
The majority of people who owns a lawnmower also owns a lawn edger. Lawn edger they always come as a pair especially to lawn mowing contractors.
How to Use a Lawn Edger
A Lawn edger uses a flat blade bolted on a spinning shaft, As the shaft spins so as the blade, and this blade is spinning vertically. Before you start the engine you want to make sure that the blade is now in contact with the ground.
Also, keep in mind that the blade can be positioned up and down some other brands even have multiple adjustments.
Ones the blade is spinning you want to align it to the outer edge of the lawn. Once it’s aligned to the outer edge of the lawn you can then bring the engine to a higher rev so the engine won’t die when you bring the blade down
