All you need to do is create an edge around the perimeter of your garden bed. Using a sharp spade, cut a straight line around your bed to at least a 4” depth. Then, from inside of the bed area, cut a diagonal line at least 6” from the perimeter down to the depth of your first pass to create a “V” notch.

How do you cut a new garden?
Slice under the sod with a spade to free the sod from the soil. Cut the sod into sections to make removal easier. You cold use herbicides to kill the existing grass before tilling the earth, but completely removing the turf eliminates the chance of new plants growing from tubers and seeds left behind.

Use a garden hose as a template to lay out your design. Place the hose on the ground approximately 3 feet from your home's foundation. Use the hose to create gentle curves to add visual impact to an otherwise straight border.
What's the best way to cut a line for a garden?
I simply walk behind the tool as it rolls easily along, cutting a continuous 1½-inch-deep line into the soil. The wheels give the tool the mobility to make nice curves, and you can clearly see as you cut, making it easy to evaluate and revise the line of your bed.
