If it is only along the edging then it seems it can only be one of three things

1. the edging in some way is killing the grass..this sounds a bit unlikely. Have you put new edging down recently?

2, You have applied something to the garden or path side of the edging ? Weed killer or pathclear. Pathclear in particular can leach across from the treated area into an area you don't want treated.

3. If you are in the middle of a drought( you don't say where you are in the world) often grass against edging goes brown first.

I can't think of any other likely causes.

Agree with Anchorman's comments, except I see you are in Bedfordshire, lol! If none of his suggestions match up, let us know what the 'edging' is...

You can get a nematode treatment for ants in lawns - not sure how effective it is, never used it. Google Nemesys, should be one of the ones available - if not, google nematodes for ants.
