Ratings reviews or views - lawn edgers

Hi all. Now I have beds and boarders I am looking to purchase lawn edger as I'm sick of pulling it by hand or scalping with the mower. unfortunately I don't have a roller off so have to mow at edges v carefully. 

 

So my question, how do you do it and what's the best tool for the job and how much did it cost. Also what brand is best aNd going to last well??

I have straight, round aNd curved edges aNd also grass up the side of concrete drive.

I'm about to go out now and have a look. It's just difficult looking everywhere! Unsure if I should put my dahlia in when it warms a bit or put them at the front where more open and sandy type soil! (Shipped in soil!!!)

I know. They hit my favourite green leathery one when it started to unfurl. They are going to be moved into the gravel while I am away and I will again douse the slate in pellets whilst I am away!! 

last night the slime trails on the raised bed was an eye opener! And the French beans in trug tubs had a hole in the leaf despite liberal pellets around the plants

Little so and so's, worked too hard this year to let it get eaten now!!

2 years I have had the bed and boarders. I was wondering about trraps to sink into the soil made from plastic bottle bottoms. But what is more alluring to slugs than my plants aNd that lasts longer than beer.  Jam??
