Start by angling the garden spade at an angle so that one of the corners is facing the ground. Then, use use this corner of the spade to cut an outline all along the edging. This will mark where your edging will stand. After you have done this, use the spade to dig along the edging. Start from the mulch side and dig outwards towards the new edge. This dig should create a small slope leading up to the edging. You can also trim along the new edging as well to give it a cleaner look. From here, use a rake to smooth out where you dug. Lastly, add extra mulch back to the area to fill it out. Any extra dirt can be placed in the wheelbarrow to be hauled away.
