Edging Irrigation Valve Boxes

3218 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Mightyquinn
Hey guys it's my first year with an irrigation system and I'm wondering what people do to keep grass growing around valve boxes nice and neat. Edge by hand? String trimmer?

Also I've got my sewer vent and water valve in my street strip that are slightly below the soil level. Grass and dirt eventually cover these completely. Should I just keep on top of maintaining these or put something like a sprinkler valve box around it to raise it up a bit?

I have used a string trimmer and a landscape blade to trim around my water meters. I just do it every so often when I see the bermuda encroaching on it.

I have on valve box in the lawn, it's my master valve for the whole system and a use a pair of grass shears to keep it trimmed up and nice looking. It sits a little lower than I would like but I haven't decided on what I am going to do it about it yet as it isn't a top priority for me.
