The Many Applications For Your Hedge Trimmers

June 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 173

Believe it or not, there are plenty of different applications for your hedge trimmers, making them highly useful garden equipment and well worth the investment. If you have an old pair of trimmers collecting rust in your shed or you have been tossing up the purchase of a pair, these additional applications may just be the lure you need to get out in the garden and do some work.

  • Trimming bushes and hedgesOf course, the main application for your hedge trimmers is keeping your unruly bushes and hedges in check. If you didn't regularly prune these plants back, they would quickly grow to uncontrollable proportions, possibly even covering up your house from view.
  • Shaping bushes and hedgesCommonly known as topiary, the use of trimmers in the art of shaping hedges and bushes is widespread. This task involves a plant being shaped into a particular design and it can be as simple as a square or a pyramid or as detailed as an animal or even a car - the choices for topiary really are endless.
  • Thinning bushes and hedgesSome plants are actually known to grow quite thickly, which can be a big problem when they begin to obstruct pathways or windows and when trying to keep the growth under control. It is for this reason that hedge trimmers are also commonly used to thin out bushes and hedges, one branch at a time. Not only does this make the plants more manageable, they can also look much more attractive.
  • Fruit pickingMany farmers have found that trimmers can be useful tools for quickly picking fruit from their orchards. How often have you seen trees that have rotten fruit lying scattered around their trunks? Often, this can be caused by people pulling fruit off the trees - other pieces simply fall off from the jolt. The use of a trimmer, however, can prevent the unpicked fruit from being disturbed.
  • Grass cuttingIt is also possible to use your hedge trimmers to cut the grass in your yard. Whilst it would be silly to think that you could mow your entire lawn in this way, the trimmers make it easier to cut around the objects that our lawnmowers can't, such as tree trunks, play equipment and rocks.

As you can see, there are plenty of uses for the humble hedge trimmers, more than one of which is guaranteed to be applicable to your yard. Found the motivation to clean up those old trimmers or go down to your local garden supplies store and pick up a pair yet?
