2) Today I want to show you what to watch out for when you are doing the edges around your lawn.
3) First up, be sure to have all the safety gear on when using your whipper snipper. These are potentially dangerous pieces of equipment and you need to treat them with a lot of respect.
4) Make sure you are covered appropriately with long trousers to cover your legs, and make sure you wear protective glasses or sunglasses to protect your eyes. Because you are working so close to the whipper snipper motor make sure you have adequate ear protection. In my case I am deaf and wear hearing aids so these double as ear muffs when they are turned off.
