Electrical or gas-powered lawn edging equipment trims grass growing directly along sidewalks, patios and garden beds that your lawnmower doesn't have the ability to cut. Using lawn edging equipment keeps grass at a uniform height and adds to a lawn's aesthetic appearance.

Function

Lawn edging equipment tools have either blade or plastic string or cord cutting mechanisms. The cutting mechanism rotates at high speeds, allowing you to quickly cut stray grass.

Safety

Wearing protective goggles decreases the chance of eye injury from flying objects when operating lawn edging equipment. Lawn edging tools normally produce a loud noise when operated; use ear plugs to reduce the risk of hearing damage. When using an electric lawn edging tool, take care not to accidentally cut the extension cord providing power to the tool.

Considerations

Metal-bladed lawn edging equipment can produce sparks and may damage concrete and exposed wires, according to David. W. Smith from the Texas A&M University's cooperative extension safety program. Check the perimeter of your lawn for any potential hazards before using lawn edging equipment.
