Tools: Edge Your Best

Tidy edges upgrade your lawn instantly. But getting straight lines (and avoiding a backache) can require a steady hand and practice. To make the job easier, look for a lightweight cordless string trimmer. The Worx GT 18-volt string trimmer-edger (left) has a pair of in-line skate wheels to guide it along edges, so there's no scalping the lawn. An adjustable second handle and a telescoping shaft offer optimal ergonomics. It's compact and lightweight for storing, too. $120; worxtools.com
