I have widely spaced plastic beds (where I have plastic beds at all; I only use it for some crops) and I cultivate aisles with disc and then cover crop and mow; and I've discovered that with a bit of care I can also mow over the plastic edges until the crop overlaps the edges, after which point it's generally less necessary.
Actually weeding the edges does do a better job; but it takes a whole lot longer.
