Don't forget to edge !
I go nuts when I see a garden that is not properly edged .........( sigh) and I have often thought of having free classes at our Duncan office for homeowners / Strata members .. Its so important to edge properly for a few reasons :
1) Obviously the appearance , a nice crisp edge goes a long way !
2) So you can cut and weed eat properly..
3) Keeps the grass from growing in the garden !

The tool itself .. - edger
I manually edge weither it is a house or a commercial property. I like to do it myself with this tool above .. as long as it's to your waist height . You do not want to be bent over , it will strain your lower back. Make sure to go in the ground the whole diameter of the tool and flick the ground / dirt in the garden.. After I go back around and break up the chunks and cultivate into the ground . I do not put the pieces and put in a bucket, way more work that needs to be happening .
