Nice work! you said mulch next? Are you laying weed barrier? if you dont, give it 3 weeks youlle have a bitchy customer. And I always flip the string trimmer and edge out the bed, get the grass off the edge.

if pics are too big for this sites default script settings to handle, upload them to your facebook account for your company and share the link here.

are you gonna sell 'em on some bricks to line it?

Im not a huge fan of weed barriers. Ive done quite a few of these. Around my house too. Weeds grow through the barriers too. I go deep to take out the roots but you eventually have weeds. Yeah the trimmer along the edge works well. But those edges are pretty clean as is. No bricks, these people are very particular and want everything to look as natural as possible. Cheese I work with mulch a lot. It can be messy but what a killer finished product. Just being careful and aware of what your doing saves a lot of cleanup time.

Great pics!

How long did it take you to do all the edging? What did you use to edge it?

Keep us posted on how this job progresses!

I'm with you on this one. If the customer ask Ill put the barrier in but I have never noticed much difference with or without at. Its real ugly when it begins to show.
