Wild hedges can often make your front or back garden feel messy due to their unruliness as they outgrow their previous shaping. Bring your hedges back under control with our super handy and powerful range of hedge trimmers. Regardless of your outdoor space size or if you have an awkward shaped garden, our cordless or battery hedge trimmers give complete freedom to trim your hedges or bushes easily. Or perhaps an extendable hedge trimmer might be more beneficial, as these are great for reaching tall hedges that would otherwise require a ladder.


Hedge Trimmer FAQs:

How to sharpen hedge trimmers

Sharpening your hedge trimmers is important to keep them functioning at their optimum. Always make sure your garden hedge trimmer is turned off and/or unplugged before you follow these simple steps.

Step 1 – Cleaning its teeth

Remove any plant sap and resin that may have built up on the blades from repeated use with a soft cloth. This means you can go straight to work on the metal without any sticky residue in the way.

Step 2 – Sharpening with a flat file

Use a flat file to sharpen the metal teeth of the hedge trimmers. File towards the teeth to sharpen their ends, and make sure you don’t saw back and forth. Instead, use the flat file in a forward and downwards motion, lifting it at the end of the stroke to start the next from the top of the blade again. If you use a sawing motion, you could blunt the end you are trying to sharpen. Try not to get carried away with the filing. Just file the teeth to the point that you need, as any further could compromise the blades.

Step 3 – Use a whetstone on any scratches

When you are done with the flat file, use a whetstone to smooth out any burrs (or scratches) in the metal caused by the filing. Turn the garden hedge trimmer on its back so you can work on the back of the blades. Wet the metal a little and use a gentle swiping motion in the direction of the tip to smooth these burrs in the metal.

Step 4 – Resin treatment and aftercare

Remove any dust that may still linger after the filing by blowing it away from the hedge trimmers’ teeth. Then, use a resin solvent to replace any of the corrosion protection that was removed during the sharpening, as this will make sure your hedge trimmer is looked after properly and therefore lasts longer.

How to use a hedge trimmer

How to use a pole hedge trimmer

You will need to use a good grip technique when you use a pole hedge trimmer. Because it is longer than a smaller handheld unit, you will need to make sure your balance is stable before you start using it.

When using the pole hedge trimmer at waist or chest height, place one hand on the handle at the rear and the other on the handle that is the furthest forward or at the front. This will give you good control and purchase.

When using the pole hedge trimmer above your head, place your back hand on the rear of the tool and the other a little further back too. This will make sure you do not over-balance yourself and keep your centre of gravity stable when using this garden power tool.

How to use a cordless hedge trimmer

Cordless hedge trimmers are very popular because they are so easy to use. Though petrol hedge trimmers have a higher power output, cordless or electric hedge trimmers are more environmentally friendly and often more cost-effective, too. If you’re looking for power, though, we do stock a range of robust petrol hedge trimmers.

Using a handheld cordless hedge trimmer is simple. Many of the makes and models we offer have easy circular handholds, so you know exactly where to place your grip. Because you will most likely be using these at hip, waist, or chest height, they are easier to balance.

Use it slowly and gently, as any sharp movements could either bring you off balance or take a chunk out of your hedge!
