Lawn Edging does makes a lot of different in regards to the look of any lawn.
Lawn edging have different meaning in regards with lawn mowing
First lets have a look at edging lawn before or after lawn
This lawn edging; I mean by cutting off access grass lawn that grow or overgrow between the lawn and the edge
It is preferable to do the edging first before you mow the lawn
so that the mower can pick up all the grass clippings from
Lawn edging tools
Let us look at some of the lawn edging tools used
There are different types of lawn edging machines. The old type
comes with a sharp round shaped blade with a handle that you
can push along between the lawn and the edge. You'll need to
put in more pressure to enable the blade to cut off the access
grass along the edge.
There are other lawn edging machines. They come with two bar
handles, two wheel and the blade and powered by either petrol of electricity.
Some of the edging machines may cost closer to $800. They are handy to have for older people oe even to have it around your homes.
It will be too slow to use on commercial basis
Most lawn mowing businesses used their brush cutter for edging.
This is easier and faster. You'll only need to master the
positioning of the brush cutter. When you master it, you'll
find it simple and faster to use to edge lawns. Some lawn
mowing business people walked sideways when using brush cutter
while edging. I prefer to just walk straight while edging. It is easier for
me and faster.
Width and depth of the edge
Edges can very in width and depth depending on the type of lawn
you are cutting. Some lawn grass grew quickly that you need to
cut the edge a little wide and deep to completely cut the roots
of the grass from the edge.
Those lawns that grow slow, it will look nice if you cut the
edge in a thin straight line.
Another technique on edging for lawn
Using the weed killer to kill the grass along the edging for lawn.
There is advantage and also disadvantage to this. The advantage is that the grass will die for a long time. All you have to do is mowing. It takes the grass more than two months to die before before you will need to spray it again.
The disadvantage is if you stop spraying the edge, the weeds will appear first from along the edge instead of lawn grass. The lawn grass will take a while to grow back. If you don't control these weeds, it will start to spread into your lawn killing the good grass.

Choosing a Lawn Aerator
Soils become compacted over time, either as a result of desiccation (drying out), or from the weight of overlying earth. This reduces the amount of open space between soil particles, known as the pore space, and leaves less room available for water and air. Not only does this make it more difficult for soil to hold water, it also prevents grass roots from properly absorbing the nutrients needed to feed shoots on the surface.
Regular aeration is an important part of cultivating a healthy and attractive lawn. In summer, the hot and dry weather can quickly dry out and brown the grass. Once a lawn has browned, aerating the affected area delivers much needed water to the roots and the grass plants will rapidly become green again, even without watering. In the fall and winter months, soil can become sealed due to an increase in compaction brought on by the changing weather. Aeration breaks up sealed soil and water is able to again move freely through the earth, preventing it from pooling at the surface. Regular aeration helps to combat the effects of the seasons, ensuring a lawn is at its best no matter what the climatic conditions.
A common method of aeration is solid tining, or spiking, which can be done using a garden fork or a spike lawn aerator. A mechanical or electric lawn aerator is suggested for larger areas, as using a fork is extremely strenuous. However, spiking is not the best method to increase soil drainage overall, as it compresses the soil rather than removing it.
An alternative to spiking is to use a hollow tiner. Hollow tining, also known as coring, removes cores of soil from a lawn by forcing a hollow steel prong into the ground. When the tine is pulled up, a small core of soil is removed, creating holes for water and air to move through. A hollow tined lawn aerator is recommended over a solid core tiner, as the removal of individual soil cores creates space for air and water to permeate more freely through the earth. It is worth noting that hollow tined aerators leave small cores on a lawn surface, and as well as being unattractive, these need to be raked up as they can contain weed seeds that will germinate if left unattended. They can also become plugged with earth and have to be cleared out a number of times while aerating a lawn. That being said, hollow tining helps to break up thatch, a matted layer of decaying grass roots that can deprive a lawn of oxygen, much more easily than solid or spike tining.
