10 Easy Pieces: Lawn Edgers

April 25, 2017

If like any reasonable person you despise the sound of machine-operated garden tools, then a manual lawn edger may bring you peace and serenity as you enjoy a backdrop of bird song while you cut a neat line at the perimeter of your turf.

Manual lawn edgers fall into two camps, having either serrated rotary blades which you wheel along or half-moon blades you step on to cut through turf. Of the latter, the easiest to operate have a flat lip to step on, making it more comfortable to use your body weight to sink the blade.

In honor of the looming lawn mowing season, we’ve rounded up 10 totally silent manual edgers:

A Sneeboer Lawn Edger with a crescent-shaped cutter and a double handle made of untreated ash is €97 from Manufactum.
