Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Gardening this year has had it's highs and its lows...I planted ten rose bushes, 3 bare root plants, corn, tomatoes, peppers, peas, and alot of just ordinary flowers...1 of the bare roots didn't ever get any leaves...but I was hopeful about the other two

Yesterday I was trimming with the weed whacking thing...and got too close to one of the bare root tiny trees...I'm afraid I demolished it beyond belief...it is now a sad stick poking out of the ground split down the center...

lesson learned...whack further away from things I want to keep...

Weed whack, weed eat, use a string line trimmer. That kind of thing. I use a Troy Bilt gas string line trimmer now. It's one of those interchangeable types. So, it's my blower and cultivator too. It's a fine product for everything it does. I just don't want to run a gas engine every time I do the yard.

I need to trim around the house and some small beds. Edge the driveway and curb too. We had a flat shovel beat out to be one of those step edgers as a kid. It sucked. I looked at the pizza cutter on a stick at Lowes. I dunno. Maybe that one needed adjustment. It bound up when I tried to work it by hand.

But what can I use to do what a string line trimmer does that isn't a string line trimmer? Or just not have to do much of anything without looking too ragedy. Nothing here is formal garden straight and perfect but, it doesn't need to look ragedy.

What are you trying to accomplish so that people can give the best recommendation?

With my beds my hubby uses a string trimmer at the borders we have established. I keep my flowers and shrubs cut back enough that he can go in with the string trimmer without touching my plants. For smaller jobs like cutting back tall grass around my vegetable garden where the stringer trimmer is too much I use a good pair of grass sheers around the base of the plants. For areas with low lying ground cover that does sort of hang over/creep past the border I just put on a pair of garden gloves and hand pull anything that is an issue.
