I’ve been lost the past week or so, but I’m back. The past few days, while the weather cooperated, I was in the garden cutting back and raking. As a young gardener I always cleaned up in fall. I felt it was so important to make everything clean, neat, and orderly. No mess…what would the neighbors think, right? With time and age however, comes wisdom. Now, autumn is spent breathing in the fresh crisp air, thinking about the holidays, and walking through the garden deciding what to do for next year. If you have a good lawn outside and lots of grass and weed has grown up then you should buy a good quality grass trimmer.
A grass trimmer also known as string trimmer is very important gardening tool that is used for cutting and trimming grass in your lawn. There are many different types of string trimmer available on the market namely electric corded, gasoline powered and cordless string trimmer. I have recently brought Bosch ART 23 SL Electric Grass Trimmer, it is one of the best grass trimmer available in UK. In this article I will be also talking about how you can choose a grass trimmer or string trimmer in 2018.
What is Grass Trimmer
Grass trimmer is really important garden equipment that helps you in maintaininga clean and elegant garden. Gardening can really be a hectic experience for you if you do not possess the right equipments. Some essential appliances that help you to increase the charm of your garden are lawn mowers, garden cart, grass trimmers and various others.
A cordless trimmer is excellent equipment which helps you to cut the grass in an orderly way. People who have huge gardens must buy this trimmer as this equipment would surely save a lot of time and money. The trimmer can give you a well organized and impressive garden in just a few hours. This device does not possess any complicated parts or steel blades, instead it has nylon string. The nylon string really helps in cutting the grass in the most organized manner.
What to look for in grass trimmer
Maybe you already have a grass trimmer but you’re sick and tired of:
- It failing to start
- Pulling your cord out
- Using starting fluid to get it running
- Being bound to 50 feet of your electrical outlet
- Tangling the electrical cord
- Taking 1 minute to chop down a weed that should take 1 second
If you answered ‘YES!’ to any of these questions, then you need a new lawn trimmer that fits your needs – and you’re in the right place!
There are good grass trimmers, and there are bad ones. When the bad ones are working, they are awkward to handle, poor at eating weeds, and tend to throw debris in all kinds of directions, including on you!
The good ones are lightweight and easy to handle and maneuver, capable of zapping the toughest weeds and grass, and throw debris away from the user. You may have noticed that grass trimmers come in all shapes, sizes and types. Bigger is not necessarily better and smaller does not necessarily mean it’s easier to use. There are many factors that come into play in selecting the best lawn edger for your needs.
Now, this may come as a surprise to you, but most of the grass trimmers that are most readily available in your local stores are usually the ones that are the best at delivering the problems listed above.
These days’ trimmers are available in cordless or corded form which you can purchase according to your needs and requirements.
