We edge lawns around the borders using lawn shears rather than strimmers. All our shears are regularly maintained and sharpened which ensures a nice finish. As we edge we slightly angle the shears backwards so this leaves the grass tips in line with the soil.
Around the drive or paths we use a different tool called a half moon. We this use to slide down between the grass edge and the path or drive to create a nice clean finish. The half moon is also used for cutting turf, re-edging a lawn or cutting through the lawn to create a new border.
