- This tool is designed to maintain the flower bed border by keeping grass from creeping in, NOT to create the edge. The curved back directs the soil back into the flower bed.
- This tool is designed to keep grass from encroaching into the flower bed. The vertical and horizontal blade cuts invading grassroots. Cultivates and grooms the soil into the bed; does not cut overhanging grass blades.
- Use this tool to clean and cultivate the border. Most effective when soil is slightly dry, so roots and soil do not hang up on the blade. In heavy clay soil add sand and other amendments to loosen the soil.
