Blade Adjustment and Depth of Cut
It is all about the final cut when it comes to lawn maintenance. So keep your eye out for an edge that has a height adjustment mechanism and an adjustable blade that you can change to suit your height and different cutting depths. A cutting depth of 2.5-inches and a 7 to 9 inch blade is sufficient for most cutting needs.
The depth of cut will vary depending on the area of your garden where you will be using the edger, so you will need an adjustable blade. The edge along your flower beds needs to be deep enough so that you can trim back any overgrown turf or garden build-up and give the edge a clean and tidy finish.
Pathways only need to be trimmed just enough to cut away any overgrown parts of the lawn to give the edges a nice sharp line and that overall immaculately manicured look.
If your lawn is bordered by garden walls and hard surfaces like paving or concrete pathways, look for a edger that has a head that can pivot 90 degrees, and a flower guard to protect delicate foliage.
Comfortable and Easy to Use
Beside the power source and cutting action of an lawn edger, you need to choose an edger that is comfortable and easy to use. If you have a small garden, look for a lightweight edger that is tagged as being easy to start easy to use, especially in tight corners.
If you have a larger yard that will need a walk-behind multi-wheel edger, then look choose a model that has a wide handle or two levers that makes the edger easier to maneuver and control, There are also models that come with Right or Left Handed Assist Handles, while others have adjustable shafts so that you can adjust the height of the edger for those hard to reach placed in your garden.
Some edgers are multi-functional and offer you two or even three tools in one. As well as operating as a basic edger, they can be used as a trencher or a line strimmer with just a quick change of attachments. This type of edger is ideal if you need to get rid of any long grass or reshape your garden or flower beds.
