Top Ten Petrol Hedge Trimmers for 2011

The lawns may be desperate for a drop in rain, at least in the south of the country, but the very dry weather has not stopped the hedges growing no matter where you are.

Many of you may remember the good old faithful garden shears when hedge trimming was a total bind.

But now is it is so much easier with a modern hedge trimmer.

One quick tip. Make sure you buy a model with enough power.

Some electrically powered models are really only suitable for the lightest privet and get clogged when tackling anything remotely heavy.

We stock literally dozens of models but here is our choice to begin with. If you need personal advice called out team at 0845 4588 905.
