This year we have tried a new edging technique around the curbed borders that provides a much cleaner look. We initially began the process with an edger, but found that using a flat shovel resulted in a cleaner edge and it was actually faster than the edger. Going forward we should be able to clean the edge with a weedeater. What was amazing was that we removed around 10 yards of material and our curbs are only at greens, tees, and par 3's!
Side note: While writing this post, I kept thinking of the movie 'The Cutting Edge' and toe pick. After looking it up, I came to find out that they actually made a sequel in 2005. Just another sad story of remaking an American classic :-)
