Useful Garden Shears For Trimming Plants
Gardening is not an easy job, but appropriate tools make the job easier for the gardener. There are several tools that a gardener requires to take complete care of his/her garden and must be a part of every garden. One of the most popular garden tool for trimming plants is the garden shears. A pair of garden shears is the perfect tool for any gardening project. Although in most cases, garden shears look like a pair of scissors, they are designed to prune and trim almost any garden flower or plant. The typical garden shears has two sharp, stainless-steel, serrated blades. Oftentimes, it has a curved section on the blade to cut through thicker items, such as twine, thick stems, and wire. The wide range of garden shears can also encompass grass shears. Grass shears are best used for trimming the grass or plant-life that surrounds structures such as fence posts, sprinkler heads, brickwork or bird fountains. They can be manual, electric, or battery powered.
Grass shears typically have either two long, sharp blades that are pointed or multiple shorter blades that move rapidly to cut grass or even to trim plants. Usually the ones that move rapidly are powered by electricity or batteries. Another example of garden shears are hedge shears. They are usually electric or battery powered. Hedge shears have a long blade – perfect for trimming and sculpting shrubs, hedges, or small tree limbs. When choosing a garden shears that will trim hedges, it is important to find one that is lightweight and that has serrated blades.
