Lawn edgers are excellent tools for grooming your lawn and creating crisp, clean lines. Edgers help prevent grass or plants from overgrowing onto sidewalks, driveways, and other garden areas. A defined edge to a lawn or garden can also prevent weeds from spreading. If your only need is to separate your garden or landscaping from your lawn, you can always use garden edgers, or material borders, that come in various styles and designs.
There are two types of outdoor power tool edgers to choose from, gas and electric. Gas edgers are ideal for larger lawns. Since the edger runs on gas, there is no need for a cord; however, gas edgers do require regular maintenance. Electric edgers are ideal for smaller lawns and are generally less expensive than gas.
