Overview

Depending on how often you need to edge your property, it may be more practical to rent an edger instead of buying one. Renting is an easy, inexpensive process. You'll have the choice of renting either a gas-powered or an electric edger. If you're doing a small amount of edging close to your house, the electric edger will work fine. However, if you have an extensive amount of edging and it's too far for a power cord to reach, then you'll want to use a gas-powered edger.

Step 1

Decide what type of edger works best for your project.

Step 2

Call local hardware or lawn equipment stores to find out if they rent edgers. Find out what sort of edgers they rent and the cost. Usually you can choose to rent for a couple of hours or overnight.

Step 3

Ask about rental deposits or any other fees. Compare bottom-line costs against proximity to the store. Don't drive 20 extra miles to save a $1.

Step 4

Drive to the hardware store and pick up your edger. Make sure you have room in your vehicle to transport it home. Double check the rental agreement to make sure the return time is correct.
