    Thank u sooo much!!! This makes this process easier! I have to say, I am cracking up bc I mentioned to husband to do this process on a wet ground….well…I got the water anyway and watered…not too much but this video proves it correct!!!! 🙌

  2. Никита Погодаев on July 2, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    I can’t believe someone needs a 5 minute video on how to make an edge with a shovel. Just unbelieveble…

  3. John Young on July 2, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    Thanks very much! Ordering Fiskars shovel now..

  4. Hendrikus de Tuinman on July 2, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    Use 2 wooden sticks with a rope so you edge in a straight line, practical advice 🙂

  5. Brent Maw on July 2, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    it’s a spade not a shovel !

  6. Dan Johnson on July 2, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    I thought the shovel you used was a transfer shovel a spade shovel has a tip like the ace of spades which is used for digging. The flat open end of the shovel, in which you use, allows for grabbing soil and then pitching it into a pile.

    Thank you for this video. I’m 62 and not so spry anymore, so I really needed this. I’ll let you know if I’m still standing when I’m done😂😅

  8. Yvonne Lugo on July 2, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    Thanks for sharing a great technique.

  9. christine steadman on July 2, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    Great instructions. Thank you

  10. Mach 2280 on July 2, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    Good video. I’m going to try your technique on my beds. Thanks

  11. Qui Tran on July 2, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    Would it be wise to sharpen the shovel?😂

  12. Megiddo Eubanks on July 2, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    Now I’m wondering if, with enough time, I could take out my entire lawn this way.

  13. dach829 on July 2, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    Those half circles require less effort, sure takes longer but doesn’t take the strength just rocking it back and forth. Really depends the kinda person you are.

  14. busyrand on July 2, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    Welp… I just rained, and I’ve got a square spade shovel… I gone so far as to get on all fours and use a large serated knife… I’ll go and try this now…

  15. Peter Fletcher on July 2, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    Very helpful. Thanks for sharing its greatly appreciated

  16. private priv on July 2, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    make sure to shake out the earth worms from the clumps and return them to the earth

  17. Kathy Helmold on July 2, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    Thanks for the tips. Sounds like a great thing to try!!

  18. Karenina44 on July 2, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    Wow! I can’t wait to try this. I usually have to wait for my husband with his man strength to edge, hoping it’s easy for me!

  19. Mr. Mike on July 2, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Now that you learned how to use a shovel, you can now focus on how to use it to edge in a smooth contour or straight line.

  20. james Sandford on July 2, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Wow apparently I’ve been using a spade wrong all my life thanks a tonn

  21. Paula Boynton on July 2, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    Good advice. Thank you.

  22. Bub Patterson on July 2, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    Thanks for the demonstration. Wish I’d known this about…say…40 years ago.

    Wow

  25. Mike Tourangeau on July 2, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    Thanks…great video. One question: If you do this each year do you find your beds getting bigger?

  26. Scott Freeman on July 2, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    So do you put landscape fabric underneath your mulch?

  27. Daniel Cleary on July 2, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    I like how simple and straight forward this video is. My Grandpa used to explain things this way. Simple steps with practical explanation and can do attitude! Thanks!

  28. Blue B on July 2, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    Good video. I have too many rocks and tree roots in my yard, so this becomes difficult.

  29. Grant Linkenbach on July 2, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    Great video. I’m using the same technique. What do you recommend someone to do with the pieces of dirt if woods aren’t an option to dispose them?

  30. R Sharma on July 2, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    This is a fantastic technique. Thankyou.

  31. Bob Canon on July 2, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    Rather than just disposing of the extra stips of removed grass, you could use them to patch any bare spots in the grass. Ive done that in the past and it works great. Just water every day for a week to ten days and good to go.

  32. D F on July 2, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    Thanks 🙏

  33. Lea Monroe-Odette on July 2, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    Thanks for the info!

  34. Myron Davis on July 2, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    Your edge looks very nice but the bed will eventually consume the lawn if you have to do this each year. You will have more bed than grass! Is that a concern with this technique? from year to year?

  35. Blair Anderson on July 2, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Great video. Exactly what I was looking for! Thanks!

  36. Grimlock on July 2, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    Great video thanks

  37. The dude guy on July 2, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    I hate that shovel. It’s terrible. You said, "it’s the best spade shovel" followed up with, you can’t do it well without the rain or damp ground. You are using the wrong tool for the job, if it can only do the job well in certain conditions . Look how you have to angle the shovel just to get it to do the job. Solution? Use an industrial shovel. Fuck that shovel you are using. Shit brand too.

  38. Terry on July 2, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    Much simpler than I thought . Originally thought I had to go and rent a gas powered unit .

  39. Judy Wyse on July 2, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    Thanks so much.

  40. Dm So on July 2, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    … People REALLY need a video for this?

    This having to exist is why there is no hope for humanity, if they are dumb enough to require this.

  41. Emma Deveto on July 2, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Hi this was a great video, how do I know how do I measure the bed so I know where exactly to cut? Do I use a marker?

  42. Melinda Lucas on July 2, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Great video and patient instructor!

  43. Christopher Gray on July 2, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    Called a Victorian edge

  44. Philis Bramlett on July 2, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    This is THE BEST LANDSCAPE EDGING VIDEO I Have Viewed ⭐
    Just what I asked for too !
    Close up edging .
    I’m going to keep looking for : a fabric layout : just for a pathway I designed .
    P. S. All my TOols Are FISKARS . I’ve been using them since I had bought scissors for my children in school. They used them year after year. Aren’t They The Best ❓
    I’ll be watching …🏡

  45. Cindy Smith on July 2, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    Nice! Your neighbor needs to clean up their leaves tho:)

  46. Abel Nodarse on July 2, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    Amazing and economic thanks

  47. K.C B. on July 2, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    Come try that with this Texas clay I have 🤣

  48. Ricardo Hernandez on July 2, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    This works for Ground that’s not too hard. What if my ground is too hard for this tool?

  49. Craig Thomas on July 2, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Nice job! Well done! I can’t wait to implement this technique. Thank you.

  50. Luis Jorge on July 2, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Where I can buy that shovel ?
