Technically, all a barber needs is a pair of scissors to do his job.
But he won't make much money because he'll spend all his time clipping and clipping away.
But with clippers, a barber is much more efficient. Same thing with hedge trimmers.
With a hedge trimmer, you'll groom and sculpt all your bushes in no time so you can spend less time trimming and more time enjoying your yard.
|It's All About the Blade|
Hedge trimmer blades come in one of two styles: single- or double-sided. Double-sided blades are more common and also cut more efficiently. Single-sided blades are safer because you can always keep the cutting edge away from you.
A wide range of blade lengths provide different user experiences. Longer blades allow you to trim bushes more evenly but may be tougher to wield. Smaller blades, such as 18" are sufficient for trimming average-sized hedges and bushes.
