The Edgit Company was founded in March of 1994 by its CEO Steve Byrne. After a 15 year career in owning his own lawn maintenance business, he discovered a solution to a time-consuming problem. His employees spent countless hours edging the same sidewalks, mulch beds and curbs over and over to no avail. The Edgit Pro and then Edgit were created to be the all-purpose answer to the predicament of creating straight edges with a string trimmer. The Edgit Pro was first created to be utilized by the hard working Lawn professionals, whereas the Edgit was designed to be used by the everyday lawn owner.
