Lawn Care: Benefits of Edging Cumming, GA

It is no surprise that your grass requires proper care in order to look good and stay healthy. While you may be focused on fertilizing and mowing your grass, edging is another task that can add significant advantages to your lawn. Whether you do it yourself or have a professional landscaper do the job, correct lawn edging can provide the following benefits:

  • Provides a clean, manicured appearance
  • Adds value and curb appeal without added expense
  • Saves trimming time
  • Protects flowerbeds by providing a root barrier against invasive lawn grasses
  • Complements and contrasts your house and overall landscape

Edging should be done around all of the grass borders to provide the most manicured look. This includes driveway and curb borders as well as those along your house, flowerbeds and shrubs. Edging can be done first, before mowing, so that the clippings are discarded back into the yard and mulched by the mower.

When it comes to edging your lawn, there are a number of tools you can use. In most cases, it comes down to personal preference. The three main edging options are a manual stick edger (which requires some man power), a “walk-behind” edger (motorized option for easy straight lines) and a motorized handheld edge (easiest to use but requires practiced technique for straighter lines). Of course the other option is to hire a lawn care expert to do the job for you!

What our clients say about us

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Peter G.

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
