Default Lawn edging using a petrol trimmer

Could somebody please explain the best way to do this as I am not very good
at it. Perhaps I just need more practice. I have a HomeLite curved shaft
model if it matters.

Thanks,

straight shaft works better. Beyond that, it's largely a matter of
practice. In my experience, you will, unfortunately, have better luck
if you turn the head so the debris flies toward you instead of away.
Wear long pants and safety glasses (or, better yet, a full-face
shield).

good luck,

In Texas, lawn maintenance folks use straight shaft and protective face
gear. Curved ones take practice. =

You can turn it sideways and cut perpendicular to the grass edge but
that requires bending over a bit more than usual (unless you are real
short). Straights give more of a 45 degree angle for cutting. If you
can't take it back (home depot receipts will take them back, if bought
there up to a year or so and I see you may not have those in the UK),
practice will help you use the tool.
