1. Edge the lawn

Edge the lawn
Whenever it comes to gardening in the backyard, sidewalks are usually made whether with concrete or wood. Grass that falls onto these sidewalks are the ones to edge first. Use a power edger for this task. Hold the power edger, switch it on and blades start running.

Gently place it on the edges of the sidewalk, and it starts cutting grass. Hold the power edger as before and move forward to edge the lawn along the sidewalks. This makes your backyard attractive and well organized. There is a manual method if you prefer doing these tasks manually. We use half moon edge tool for edging the lawn.

It is time taking and at the time of using the moon edge tool, look for wires or pipes and dig into the soil. No one wants extra headaches while working in the garden, right.

Water your plants, maintain the garden and put up a schedule for cleaning once or twice a week. This is good for them and good for you physically as you spend a few minutes to hours working in the backyard.
