Trust us when we say this – trimming a hedge with anything other than a purpose-made trimmer is for the birds. We’ve been there. A particularly grasping landlord paired with a spring of rain and sunshine led to us trying (and eventually succeeding) to trim an entire hedge with shears.
- What about the best cordless lawnmowers?
Never again. If we’d only had the knowledge (and the capital) to buy or borrow one of the hedge trimmers on this list, our afternoon-long ordeal would have been over in a snap, freeing us to actually enjoy life. These models are all impressive, and all cordless to make sure that you don’t twist yourself up in wires as you work.
