How to Put an Edge Down With Just a Straight Shovel

By Dylan Stephenson from So-Low Cuts Landscaping

When it comes to lawn maintenance, and making your customers’ properties look crisp and sharp, there’s nothing like a nice edge to make it pop.

There’s a bunch of discussion on whether you should use a dedicated edger, or a string trimmer. But what about neither of these? In this video, I want to share how to put an edge down using just a straight shovel.

As I mention in the video, all I’m using is a simple, straight Kobalt shovel that I picked up from Lowe’s for about $30, maybe less.

From redefining the edge to getting it just so (at least when it comes to a flower bed), a shovel can be more than enough.

Well, I hope that helps, guys, and I’d love to hear if you use shovels for edging work, and what your thoughts are on it!
