Be aware that mowing is not enough to make your lawn look special, meaning, aside from mowing, you have to edge or trim it in order to achieve the beauty of your lawn. The tool that will make your lawn into a beauty to behold is called a lawn edger or trimmer. There are some features that you should look for in a lawn edger/trimmer.

A Brief Rundown of Equipment
Another feature that you should look for in your lawn edger/trimmer is if it has enough torque and horsepower to perform the job. Generally, the right edger/trimmer should have a 4.75 torque and 3.5 horsepower motor to cover the yard. A blade disengagement capability is one safety feature that you should look for in your lawn edger/trimmer. This is an important safety feature for the user of the edger since it will allow you to disengage the edger’s cutter blade from turning. The next feature that you will want for your edger/trimmer is that if it can maintain balance when used on curbs, uneven grounds and so on. Be informed that an edger with four wheels usually gives you better balance than an edger with just three wheels. An edger/trimmer that will give you a neat, sharp, clean-looking grass cut along your driveway, sidewalks, flowerbeds, etc should be what you will buy. Look for an edger/trimmer that allows you to conveniently and quickly replace the edger blade when it is worn down and has to be replaced. Since safety is very important for you, buy an edger/trimmer that has protection to the user like an edger blade guard, or a rear edger/trimmer debris protector. Changing the edger/trimmer from one function back to the other function should be done with little effort, and this is the kind of edger/trimmer that you should purchase. Since an edger/trimmer is available in the market as gas powered and electric, it is suggested that you buy according to your own requirements or needs. Since the two types of edger/trimmer have their differences, disadvantages and advantages, your choice will be based on what you need. The difference between an electric edger and gas powered edger is on their models, like two models for electric edger such as battery operated and the AC powered, while the gas powered comes as four-cycled engine and two-cycle engine.
