Shovel Edging

Take Your Landscape to the Next Level with a Crisp Shovel Edge!

Once the beds have been cleaned up and prepped for mulch, now is the time to edge those beds!


A shovel or spade edge clearly defines the beds and tree rings from the turf.  The edge can be created using a shovel, or with a mechanical bed edger.


When edging, the turf-side edge should be at a 90 degree angle to the grass, and the bed should slope down at a 45 degree angle to meet the turf.


The edge provides a buffer against weeds or grass creeping into the beds, helps with drainage runoff and provides an aesthetically pleasing look to your landscape beds. A shovel edge is a must for discriminating property owners.
