Is your garden surrounded with an established green hedge? To keep it well groomed and healthy, giving it a haircut now and again is a necessary practice. Staying on top of the job makes it easier. A suitable hedge trimmer could become your new best friend. First you must decide on the type of trimmer to best handle your hedges. If you have a small hedge, a pair of garden shears will do the trick. These cut using a simple scissor-like motion. Manual garden shears will give you a good upper-arm workout.
For larger hedge growth, you will find a variety of powered hedge trimmers. An electric hedge trimmer or cordless hedge trimmer are your best options. These shear the hedge with cutting teeth that move back and forth. Combination power tools can also shear hedges. A chainsaw and hedge trimmer tool is a practical choice for large landscaping jobs. Some of these come with extension poles so you can trim hard-to-reach trees. These days, you can find a large number of cutting-edge tools to keep all your hedges looking their best.
