A garden hedge trimmer is essential garden machinery for British gardens for keeping hedges, shrubs, and other natural landscaping under control.
These trimmers typically come with a double blade, enabling you to cut in both directions to speed up work. The longer the blade, the faster you can cut. An electric hedge trimmer is the best choice for new growth hedges. Woody and thorny hedges such as Hawthorne or Pyracantha are easier to manage with a powerful high-quality petrol model. Long-reach hedge trimmers are designed to help cut tall hedges such as Leylandii without a ladder. They have a telescopic or extendable shaft allowing you to cut safely above head height. Cordless hedge trimmers are ideal for big domestic gardens where a long extension lead would be difficult to manage.
