Edging your lawn after mowing makes a significant difference to how smart your garden looks. 
Follow the tips below for perfectly manicured result. 
If you’re keen to get the job done quickly, an electric grass trimmer with an edging mode is the ideal tool. For smaller lawns and a quieter experience, you can use a pair of edging shears. Just make sure you keep blades sharp for efficient progress and the smartest end result. 
Step 1 
Recut the edges of your lawn at least once a year to maintain a clean line. Use a half-moon edging tool and cut against a plank of wood to ensure a straight finish. If you have curved sections of lawn, lay out a piece of rope and follow the contour for maximum precision. 
Step 2 
After mowing, use your electric trimmer or shears to tidy up the grass edges that the mower couldn’t reach. Once these are trimmed level with the grass height, gather up and dispose of the clippings. They can be added to the compost heap where they will decompose into valuable nutrients. 
Step 3 
If you have grass growing over pathways, use a sharp knife to cut along the turf in line with the edge of the path and then pull it away in strips. 
Step 4 
If the grass sits flush against the edge of a path, long-handled grass shears are the safest option. Selecting shears with telescopic handles will allow you to achieve a tidy trim without putting pressure on your back. 
Hard borders 
If you’d prefer to maintain lawn edges with a hard border, there are numerous options to choose from: 
Rubber, weather-resistant lawn edging can be slotted together and laid in sections, making it suitable for curved or straight lawns. Look for styles that have a tapered edge to allow you to achieve a close mow. 
Eco-friendly brick edging uses recycled materials to create a smart and tidy border. It comes with built-in spikes to enable you to anchor it firmly into position. 
Woven wicker edging is a decorative option, and its long spikes make it easy to secure in place. 
Spiked metal sheeting is a good alternative if you’re looking for something sturdy and hardwearing. 
Spiked wooden border roll is a great choice if you’re keen to use natural materials.
