One may also ask, how often should you edge your lawn? If you want to do it only one time a year, which is close to the average, edge sometime in late June. By waiting until the end of June, you avoid the peak growing season–April to May–so your edging work lasts longer as your grass grows less from July to December.

Do pavers need edging?

Do use edge restraint – yes you need it!
All projects, regardless of their use, need to be restrained. If pavers are not restrained they will slowly “creep” into the softer surrounding materials and large gaps between the pavers will appear around the perimeter of the area.

Do you edge before or after mowing?

redmax fan: When you edge first then ride over the edge with the mower you can mess up the clean edge, so we mow before edging. We mow first so then we only have to trim places the mower doesn't get instead of having to guess and waste time over trimming. Then trim or edge, it doesn't matter which.

What is the difference between trimming and edging?

Trimming versus Edging a Lawn. Trimming will help add that manicured touch to your lawn. Edging is a vertical cut and trimming is a horizontal cut. Trimmers generally use heavy nylon string that rotates in a circular motion, parallel to the ground.
