Time for trimming!

No matter how effective your lawnmower is, there will always be a few more things to do before you can relax: The time has come for trimming and edging.

Trimming your lawn can be the difference between an ordinary, normal lawn and something real special. The trimming is vital in order to get to the growth that the lawnmower can’t reach. Around rocky parts, roots or uneven parts of the lawn, but also in areas that aren’t the “fine” parts of the lawn, but rather parts of the lawn that consist of smaller meadows or forested slopes.
So what should one keep in mind while trimming the garden? First of all you need a good trimmer, easy to start and use, lightweight and with low noise levels. 

“And then it’s not that complicated, really”, says Andreas Rangert, Global Product Manager at Husqvarna. “You’ll be needing good trousers, sensible shoes, ear protection, protective glasses and a sense of respect for the fact that it’s a rotating nylon thread that sweeps ahead of you. The trimmer is effective when cutting grass but won’t suffice when it comes to sturdier, woodier things like small bushes. Then you’ll have to use other tools.”
Edging is performed in order to create clear-cut edges of lawns with flowerbeds or gravel pathways. It makes the lawn look better and also makes it easier to keep the grass separated from other plants. Use a shovel or spade with a straight blade or an edger tool. The edging is easiest to do while the lawn is moist.
