You are one step away from Saving money, time, and energy. Have you ever broken a sprinkler trying to weedeat around it.I have. But if you dont weedeat around it, your sprinkler will be blocked and your grass will be patchy. One time my husband actually broke our sliding glass door from using a weedeater.(it flicked a rock right into the door) That was an expensive mistake.Like I said using this simple method will save you precious money, time and energy and lasts alot longer than the dreaded weedeating.
