Definition of mowing strip

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

Refers to a hard surface such as brick or concrete installed at level with the lawn at the edge between the lawn and a flower bed

The tires of the lawn mower can ride on the mowing strip, allowing you to mow close to the edge of the bed and hopefully reduce the amount of trimming or weeding required to maintain a neat appearance.

A fairly wide mowing strip will also help keep grass in the lawn and out of your flower bed, especially with grasses that spread by runners such as Bermuda grass.

Definition as written by Magpye:

Sometimes known as an edging strip. The six to eight inches of space between the lawn and the flower or vegetable bed. The flat area decoratively made with cement or brick.
