Trimming a hedge is usually a mundane and tedious task, but with a dedicated hedge trimmer, which could be cordless, corded, or petrol-powered, it can be reinterpreted as a pleasant and relaxing experience. The many models available help in finding just the right tool for the job, depending on power type, power output or blade length. The simplest trimmers are enough for amateur enthusiasts of well-maintained gardens who love the handling, low weight, and – for cordless models – independence from the power grid. The most powerful trimmers are petrol powered and work tirelessly in the hands of professionals. Those with telescopic poles and a cutting head tilt control can help in trimming hedges and shrubs up to several metres high, without any need for a ladder.
