7 Amazing and Arty Topiary Hedges

If our recent post about a giant garden hedge proved anything (apart from the fact that our world has some incredibly large greenery of course) it’s that we love a good hedge trimmer here at Garden Toolbox! We are also advocated of shrub trimmers and shears. Sure, we’ve seen some pretty ratty hedges in our time but for the most part a garden hedge remains a well tended and attractive border to your garden, helping add a bit of character and a natural solution that a fence just can’t manage. We love it even more though when people decide to partake in the art of topiary, turning something that would have been a small attractive border to their front garden into something that turns peoples heads as they walk down the street.

So, with this in mind we’ve took a look around the Internet to find some of our favourite examples of topiary. It’s a collection that makes us want to get out our garden shears or secateurs straight away and set to work creating something that probably won’t even be half as good!

It’s always good to get a thumbs up from a hedge when you’re walking down the street a lovely bit of landscaping, even if you have to double check if you were just seeing things! The huge smiley face and spiky hair on this topiary example is charming off, but teamed with the bush behind it the design gives the impression that he’s giving you a thumbs up as you walk past. It’s almost as if he’s saying “Don’t worry about the name, there are honestly no crabs here”. His huge mouth probably swallowed them all up! The great news is this work will attract the birds back too.

Lions seem to be a favourite amongst those who practice topiary, maybe it’s because people like growing the somewhat dishevelled mane? In any case this is the best one I found, and a very proud green lion he looks indeed! Just looking at a construction like this you’ve got to appreciate the creativity and complexity that goes into creating such designs.

This giant Christmas pudding themed hedge took six years to create out of a pair of 20ft conifers. It was designed by Roger and Valerie Holley from Yeovil Somerset, inspired by a comment from their 12 year-old granddaughter who said “that looks like a massive Christmas pudding”. Every summer the couple works on the shape to make it even fatter; before using watered-down white emulsion paint as cream and popping a holly on top just in time for Christmas. One year they even added a robin! I’d say it looks good enough to eat, but I’m not a fan of Christmas pudding. I do love their hedge though!

It’s hard for anyone to not recognise the Fab Four, and Liverpool – the city that The Beatles came from – decided to honour them by fashioning topiary in their image outside the city’s South Parkway train station. It took 18 months to grow the band, only for someone to lop the head off Ringo Starr, probably thanks in part to a few comments he made about Liverpool and not exactly missing the city. Ringo’s head is now back and The Beatles remain in green form to to this day.

I have to admit that I don’t mind the odd bit of Formula 1. Some people wonder how you can enjoy a few fast cars going round and round a race track for a couple of hours, but for me it’s a good thing to stick on the TV on a lazy Sunday. This Formula 1 inspired topiary is actually outside the Williams F1 headquarters, where a team of gardeners spend hours every month making sure it’s trimmed. The car, originally made for a Ferrari but purchased and re-shaped by Williams, is 11ft long long and is made from six plants. Attending it are 6ft high mechanics, each made from two plants. Crafting the car and its mechanics was a slow process, as it took two-and-a-half years for the planting to grow around their metal frames and completely cover them. The results were definitely worth it!

We all love a bit of Disney, so here’s the cast of Toy Story 3 in loveable topiary form! These are situated at Epoct in Walt Disney World, Florida. There are far more than just these three though, and in fact the Disney park holds the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival every year, showcasing over a hundred carefully crafted topiaries. If you want to see your favourite Disney characters in plant form then the festival would be the perfect time to go.

That’s your lot…wait, you want another Disney one? Oh go on then!

If you have a topiary or hedge in the shape of something or know of any you can view then let us know, we’d love to see pictures!

Choosing the Best Gardening Tools

You might think in order to have the perfect garden; you need every garden tool ever invented for gardening purposes and even some which aren’t. You’re wrong. People might try and sell you tools that they deem necessary which aren’t – at the end of the day, some people are just out to make a quick buck but in this article we will go through the best and worse as unbiased fellow gardeners.

We’re going to give you a run-down on some of the most efficient and useful tools you can own for the garden and how to ensure you buy quality equipment that can stand the test of time…

Must Have Gardening Equipment:

It’s worth bearing in mind that everyone will have different needs and requirements, because nobody has exactly the same garden. Obviously you may want to buy additional tools and equipment to deal with certain areas of your garden, but on the whole, the following list should be a great starting point for the majority of green thumbs out there. Before we even get into the lis however, this handy list of lawn mowers is sure to save you a fortune.

1) Hand Trowel – This needs to be sturdy as it’s one of the most used tools you’ll have in your collection. Used for planting, weeding and a whole host of other things.

2) Spade – Ideally you should go for one with a square blade and a handle that’s simple to hold; preferably D-shaped as this provides the best grip and allows for easy handling.

3) Stirrup Hoe – A relatively simple tool that is strong, but lightweight and great at cutting through weeds. Blade width comes down to preference, so choose what takes your fancy.

4) Digging Fork – Similar to the spade, but much easier to drive into the ground and soil due to the design which enables you to loosen and turnover soil with minimal effort in comparison.

5) Secateurs / Pruning Shears – There’s a lot of names for these hand pruners and several different types of shears. Opt for ‘bypass’ designs as these are the most commonly used and for good reason. Essentially, they are garden scissors; ideal for trimming and pruning bushes, stems as well as other things. These are perfect for tackling an overgrown garden. If you do buy a hedge trimmer be sure to check this information on them before.

6) Leaf Rake – These are the lightweight rakes that are ideal for raking up grass, leaves and other insubstantial debris/scraps you might have lying around the garden. Leaf collectors would be a handy little addition too. These will be a lifesaver come autumn, especially if you or your neighbours have trees.

7) Bow Rake – The bow rake is considerably more heavy duty than the leaf rake mentioned previously. These are better suited to raking through tough soil and dealing with rocks and other harder obstructions.

8) Hand Cultivator – The handheld version of a cultivator, ideal for smaller applications rather than acres of garden. They have a multi-functional role of weeding, breaking up soil and planting preparation. Designs vary slightly at the tines, but all perform similarly; essentially it comes down to preference!

9) Garden Knife – There are so many garden knives out there, that we couldn’t possibly recommend a particular one. A hori hori (Japanese) knife is ideal for digging, cutting and even scooping thanks to the design. Folding garden knives are also useful; just make sure you get one suitable for weeding, dividing plants and furrowing.

10) Wheelbarrow – No gardener can say they have all the tools and equipment they need without a wheelbarrow. Choose one that’s sturdy, well designed (to make loading and unloading easy) and resilient. Galvanised wheelbarrows with a pneumatic tyre should be able to tackle any job you have in mind.

Incidentally, many of the tools listed are some of the oldest originating tools used in the gardening industry. This says a lot about how useful these tools were in the olden days and how they still manage to get jobs done efficiently, regardless of advancements within the market.

How to Buy Garden Tools Intelligently

Now we’ve gave you a pretty comprehensive list of all the basic gardening tools you need to get your hands on, you’ll want to know the best way to go about this, right? Well, like everything in life, there’s good decision and bad decisions to make in the process, we’ll try and guide you in the right direction to make the best purchases possible.

1) Make a list ­– If you start off by making a list of the above 10 tools, then go into your shed (or wherever you happen to keep all your tools and equipment), see what you’ve got and what you haven’t got and make a note. Also, it’s worth bearing in mind that even if you have some of these tools, they might need replacing due to neglect – make a judgement call and work out which things you need. If you decide you want a chain saw, please read this chain saw safety manual first.

2) Quality – Many times gardeners look at tools and equipment as disposable and therefore buy things on the cheap and replace them the following year. Try and step away from this attitude and opt for a quality tool as they hold many benefits over cheaper, inferior alternatives.

High quality tools are usually made from stainless steel or carbon fibre steel. Stainless steel tools have the luxury of being rust-proof and are therefore considerably more durable than others; but they also come at a high price. Carbon fibre tools on the other hand are a bit cheaper and still just as sturdy and easy to use; however, they probably need to be looked after a bit more carefully.

3) Examine – When buying tools if you get a feel for them before parting with your money, even better. Pick them up, feel them and see if they’re suitable for you. Are they too heavy to work with? Are they too light to stand up to the job they were designed for? An example would be a shredder. There’s a lot going on and you should pick wisely. Be careful of painted surfaces as this is usually used to take attention away from and cover up lower quality construction materials.

4) Multi-purpose – If you’re going to stray away from the list we created, that’s fine! But make sure you don’t pick tools that only have one use as there’s a good chance you have another tool in your collection that can do the job equally well. There’s no point wasting money just to have a ‘dedicated tool’. There are a few exceptions to this rule, but they don’t really apply to the novice gardener.

At the end of the day, just make sure you buy carefully and look after your tools as they could well be life-long friends. Despite the constant change in technology, it is very rare that a new non-electrical tool comes out that will replace it’s predecessor so don’t treat them as disposable!

Why Buying a Garden Shredder Is a Worthwhile Investment

Why Buying a Garden Shredder Is a Worthwhile Investment

Garden shredders are one piece of kit that is regularly debated in the gardening world; people love the soil fertilising mulch that one creates but it’s also constantly prompting questions about whether you should buy a garden shredder or simply rent one. Now obviously there are pros and cons to each, which I’m about to get into, but to sum up this article for those that don’t have time to read on I’ll tell you what the camp I roll with. You should buy a garden shredder as they’re a great investment. Want to read on? Here’s why.

For garden shredders you can expect to pay at least £100, although you may be able to get one for a few quid cheaper. The more expensive they get, the more powerful they tend to get too, and the more unlikely it is that it’s going to get blocked all the time and it can handle thicker branches too. On the other hand you could rent one, which may cost you around £30 or so for a weekend’s worth of shredding. This is fine if you’re only using the garden shredder once, but for the regular gardener who likes to get the hedge trimmer out (or shrub trimmers if you prefer by hand) and trim shrubs and branches 2 or 3 times a year it may be worth it to invest in your own instead. Just think about it, 3 times renting a year for 5 years is going to cost you quite a bit more than just renting one outright, plus when you buy one you’re in control of when you can use it and you don’t have to run into the problem of a shop being all out of rentals when you really need to tidy your garden up that weekend.

Most gardeners will also know why you should be using one in the first place, and that’s because of the lovely mulch that using one generates. Churning all your garden waste up, such as loose twigs and branches, in a shredder means you’re actually recycling what nature provides and not just chucking it away. The mulch can be spread around your garden and helps improved soil quality by supplying it with much needed nutrients, leading to better plants in the long run. As an added bonus it also helps suppress the growth of nasty weeds, so at the end of the day you’re saving more money by not having to buy fertiliser and weed killer. Not only that, mulch really helps plants in a time of drought, which in turn helps the wildlife when there’s a shortage of water too.

NOTE: Before you buy you also need to be aware about safety. Using a garden shredder is quite safe provided you know how to use it properly and you wear adequate safety gear. It’s worth taking a look at our hedge trimmer history fact sheet too. Get hold of goggles, gloves and safety clothing so you don’t get scratched before you even plug your new garden shredder in. Also, make sure you never put in anything that is obvious the blades won’t cut. Not only is it for safeties sake, but you could also damage the shredder. Finally, don’t put any wet waste into an electric shredder, for obvious reasons.

So, what garden shredder should I buy?

You can expect to pay around £100 for a decent high quality garden shredder that’s going to do the job efficiently and won’t end up breaking down on you before you’ve even thrown half of your garden waste in there. There are a number of brands that put out garden shredders; such as the esteemed Bosch, Black & Decker and Flymo. Generally, you can expect to pay a little more for well-known branded products but you’ll definitely be getting a worthwhile deal from it. They do amazing chain saws too if you need something to cut the branches before shredding.

At the lower end of the scale we have the Handy Impact Garden Shredder, which you can get for around £96 excluding any delivery charges. It’s portable, meaning you can easily wheel it around the garden to have it where you need; saving you the effort of carrying bundles of branches about making more mess, all the while dropping half of it on the garden lawn(and obviously the lawn mower won’t thank you for that). The downside is the 3m cable means you may not be able to take it as far as you want, but that can be overridden by using an extension cable. It also has a powerful 2400 watt motor and will shred solid branches up to 40mm in diameter in a fast rotary shredding action, and there’s enough space in the debris bag to fit 50L of waste. It doesn’t have any of the fancy features that the more expensive models have, but this is a great bay if you’re simply after a simple basic garden shredder.

This is obviously quite a bit more expensive – at around £336 – but it’s a powerful beast that is designed to shred large trees, hard branches, shrubs and other green material. It cuts up your waste incredibly fast with a turbine system that will significantly reduce the chance of blocking, but if there does happen to be a block it is equipped with an easy unblocking system. You’re not getting any more space for you waste though, as it also fits 50L in the collection box. Still, if you’re after a shredder that’s going to handle thicker waste without much trouble and not make you end up having to unblock it all the time then it’s well worth the investment.

If you have a lot of money to burn then you could pump for the Makita GSP5500 Petrol Garden Shredder. At nearly £1,100 this is more for the buyer who is in the gardening business, not to mention the cost of having to fill it up with petrol too. However, for that price you get a hell of a lot of brute force; shredding 50mm branches with a 9 blade cutting system, each blade being individually detachable for sharpening. It’s safe to say that you’ll have your garden cleaned up in no time with this beast.

Using Safety Equipment with a Chainsaw

The correct usage of a chain saw is a big topic in its own right, but purely from the basic safety viewpoint there are specific items to talk about.

In Safe Hands

Make sure that your chain saw includes the safety of the hand guard which will doubles as the chain saw braking system if your chain saw kicks upwards. This is normal these days. People that would rather use their left hands really should check the chain-saws and safety gloves, because nowadays these are manufactured for right handed people, & the lefties amongst us all will need to learn to utilise the chain saw in a very different style.

In dryer environments try not to let petrol  splash onto the motor components, neither should you smoke cigarettes near the chainsaw as this could be fatal for you or anyone nearby. This is no hedge trimmer, this is a serious weapon in the wrong hands.

While carrying out tasks with a chain saw, especially difficult procedures, you should ideally have somebody on hand to aid you and make sure that everything is as safe as you can. We strongly recommend to lug a full emergency first aid kit around with you.

Cutting any kind of tree can be quite high risk even for specialists; this expert job usually requires proper training. It is not advisable to attempt chopping a large tree down before you know the appropriate techniques needed. It’s especially important to ensure you don’t leave any sharp points on the stump, especially if you’re trying to make the garden safe for toddlers.

Always clean your working space of brush, under growth, unfastened branches and debris. While felling, avoid letting the chainsaw blade from making contact with very hard surfaces such as stone as well as the earth and make certain all nails, fasteners and other metal products is removed from the wood just before slicing. Using a blunt blade is dangerous, keep it in perfect working order with a chain saw chain sharpener.

Don’t be inclined to swing from trees whilst using the chainsaw and hold the chain saw down below stomach level when you are operating it. Many people have injured themselves terribly doing this.

Don’t throw away your branches, instead get a shredder and then create a mass of wood chips that can be used to protect your plants hydration in the summer drought that’s sure to follow.

This is the perfect picture of how NOT to do it.

There are many hazards when making use of an electrical chainsaw. One particular being, using your electric powered appliance while it is raining, because this can certainly result in an electric shock and quite possibly death the same principal applies to electric pressure washers too. The second is to adopt extreme care to stop cutting the electricity cord. Whenever using an electric chain saw, there’s procedures you should follow to keep safe, when it is then make sure its capable of handing the total power supply without tripping, another great tips is to unroll the cable so it does not get too hot.

In the event of a severe injury do everything possible to help clean the wound & stem the flow of the bloodstream & keep the damaged body part as high as possible & await the arriving of the emergency services.

Many people do not actually injure themselves operating a chain saw, because they follow the proper safety recommendations. Please be certain that you are one of those in that particular category and consider suitable safety measures and put on the proper clothing.

Chain Saws

Taking good care and maintaining your chainsaw is an extremely important part of having this useful item, but you also need to look after yourself when using it. They are extremely dangerous if misused and every safety precaution must be taken to ensure you remain safe during use. Chainsaw safety is a big deal, please don’t think otherwise.

Working with a petrol or electric chainsaw will be the dangerous thing you ever get up to in the back garden, be sure all  the parts of the physical body are safe with all the relevant essential safety kit. Make sure you handle a chain saw with caution and also consider required essential safety steps. Always read the instructions for correct and safe use. Every single new chain saw will come with one.

Chainsaw Clothing Safety

The correct safety protective clothing must be used, ordinarily this means staying covered thoroughly with some kind of safeguarding gear primarily in place to protect you from any chain saw mishaps and flying wood chips.

Head – Buy a combined safety unit:

Don’t skimp on chain saw head protection. In an ideal world you would have this kit: Your helmet; (to protection specifications EN 397) Visor; (Plastic, Mesh or Clear) to EN 1731 Ear Defenders / Ear Muffs to EN 352-3.

Safety ear-plugs are a fantastic replacement for ear-muffs. Eyeglasses must be to safety standard EN166. The producer Vitrex boasts excellent helmets which includes a number of functions, including the rainwater gutter that is valuable in very poor conditions. It truly is optimal to make sure all of your current chainsaw equipment is a good fit and enables adjustments to be made.

Protection Kit

Confirm that any type of specialised clothes which you purchase is authorised using the safety EU symbol suggesting it is fully tested.

Chain saw jackets and trousers should have specialised kevlar or a ballistic coating manufactured into the clothing which allows the body to be safeguarded should the saw blade kick-back. When any cut has happened, the clothing is recommended to be replaced.

Protective Leg Gear  

You can acquire Type A seatless chaps to go on top of your regular trousers: these chaps protect just the front of the leg but they are significantly less susceptible to temperature build up.

With a selection of options out there, now is the time to buy a protective jacket provided by manufacturers like DeWalt, Draper and even Makita.

To further safeguard yourself, you’ll find Type C slacks available that defend a person just about all the way round. They will keep your lower limbs pretty warm however they are vital for heavy use chain-saw users. The very best wager might be to go for bib & brace type trousers in which the bib adds the additional proper protection that you will want. Draper produce such a pair that are fitted with anti- chop lining which abides with the most current EN381 rules. Include a jacket on hand for 2x safety and definitely warmth.

To help guard more vulnerable parts of the body, gaiters are available to buy. Makita is one of the manufacturers selling these. Gloves aren’t an area to cut costs. Draper specialise in the anti cut chain saw glove and provides protection from saws up to 16 metres per sec. The actual testing specification conforms to EN 381-7. Prior to purchasing you ought to check what regions of your hands are shielded properly. Often it is the back of the left-hand, in which a good number of injuries tend to be sustained. Supposing needless to say that the worker is a right hander.

Chain-saw Boots

Chain saw boots are typically across the path of the typical work boots that utilise the steel caps, and also comprise of extra anti-cut defence, the best use a Kevlar coating, and also have a really good capacity to resist staining and blemishes. Virtually any shoes will need to ideally comply with EN345-2 conditions.

Packaged Safety Kits

In case you are looking to save a bit of money you might be able to purchase kits that will contain all or most of the aforementioned goods & ideal for first timers.

 

Hedge Trimmer

The History Of The Hedge – Trimmer

The hedge-trimmer has been required for a long while; hedges & bushes have always needed sustaining and even more so from when they were used to separate the fields of farmers & guard animals and crops from the foul winter months.

Since way back when, hand shears were utilised; but, the innovation of the 19th century altered things as many labour-saving equipment and garden tools were thought up and several of these are still copyrighted these days. We The 20th Century gave way to a lot of the populace getting gardens of their own, this induced a reaction where people required gardening tools which had not come to exist at this point. Some of the more common ones being a garden fork, spade, hoes, garden trowel, hand fork, gloves, hose pipes, and the revolutionary wheelbarrow.

Garden Shears
Garden Shears

The hedge trimmer had important instances in it’s time-line; most significant are presented below.

1854: Leonard Wood who was living in Idaho conceived a product that had wheels that drove beside the hedge that had gears and an almost up-right cutting wheel and side to side cutters. Just like most devices of the time it depends on horse drawn movement, or eventually, steam power, however hand-held tools are some way away.

1865: A patent is given to A. Selover for a wood construction that depended on a saw together with versatile clamps and poles to manage the width and the level of a cut.

1871: An alternate frame-work gadget was built by the Vannosdall brothers.

1890: Andrew Fox coming from Ohio in the USA designed and crafted a piece of equipment which had an inverted cover in the shape of a ‘V’ & had many cutters at the front of it. Even during this very early time period we’re becoming closer and nearer to the actual multiple blade products we have & utilise nowadays such as strimmers and bush cutters

1891: Elliot, Robust registered and has approved a patent for a ‘mobile’ hedge-cutting device. It was mentioned to be much more of a torment appliance than other things, as it had to be run by somebody that was buckled to a lead of limitless length. Either end of the wire was linked with some thing at opposite ends of the pasture and motion was provided by what ever was available during the period. This was an evident indication that to make a portable device functional, major improvements for the weight and size of engines had to be made to permit range of motion.

1922: The Little Wonder organisation ltd. situated inside the U.K, created a hedge trimmer including a hand crank. It’s possibly amongst the 1st models of current day hand-held devices using reciprocating cutting-blades which we see so frequently now. It managed to stay in development throughout the 1950s and contrary to popular belief wasn’t just liked by gardening enthusiasts but particularly with pasta manufacturers too. Reason being the razor-sharp teeth were the perfect item to slice delicate strands of pasta. When 1935 arrived, ‘Schiller’ (based in the USA) acquired the business out & transported it back to the States; in the modern day these folks still build at three plants inside the U.S.

1940: A hand-held, 1 bladed (reciprocating), hedge-trimmer ended up being created by the ‘Little Wonder Company’.

1945: They create the very first double bladed reciprocating hedge-cutter.

1955: and the very 1st petrol powered hedge cutter is put out onto the market.

The Baby Boom

Post-war, the improvement of a lot of appliances altered, the hedge trimmer just like the chainsaw. The chainsaw manufacturers started bringing out: light in weight, small engine devices dependent upon brand new alloys as well as two stroke engines. From the start there appeared to be more of a focus around electrical power engines, since these are usually aimed towards being gardening products as an alternative to rural out-of-doors devices such as the chainsaw which is more typically petrol driven.

One of the reasons the units had become very popular in the household is undoubtedly a result of Black and Decker making it popular after they started mass producing them. Things ended up being forced even farther in ’62 when B&D introduced a variation of the cutter that comprised a mobile power pack of battery cells; it was a revolutionary concept, however since the power supply wasn’t effective in those days, it turned out less than satisfactory for the jobs it was made for. At present, B&D, Makita, Bosch plus a large variety of other companies are always competitive within the cordless hedge trimming market, supplying different types varying in size, energy and functionality.

B&D at first got control over the electrical power drill market, and acquiring this type of big research and development workforce helped them in the seventies to launch a hedge trimmer add-on unit to a drill, although this ended up being incredibly capable, it was actually never to become as effective as the actual specialist hedge trimmer.

McCulloch actually being one of the primary chainsaw innovators established that it was in fact the opportunity to widen towards the hedge trimmer industry during the 70′s. Today they are owned by ‘Husqvarna’ the number one out of doors tools manufacturer and you can see them among various other names of the firm such as Gardena. The McCulloch brand still pave the path for enhancement for the petrol section within the current market, fuel pumped easy start products and a few of their tools are the littlest and least heavy available, weighing only 5 kilos. Gardena make up the cord less model collection consisting of every thing hand-held and extended range types.

Arguably the most significant hedge trimmer aspect was the long reach hedge trimmer, created by Echo. The longer grip & saw blade enabled the home user to reach places that simply weren’t doable before when using a standard hedge trimmer.

The more high-priced versions possess pivoting grips that will bend to permit various angles to be acquired whilst cutting.

The look of things to come

During May Last year a patent had been released for a Multipurpose Debris Deflector created by Techtronic Outdoor Products Technology. As perhaps you might be aware, generally products can disperse debris in any direction, including from your person, therefore these kinds of ‘debris deflectors’ and other similar appliances are very desirable.

Consistent design changes in recent times has been met with welcome adjustments for example regulations now assert both your hands ought to be on your device for it to operate correctly. In the event that both hands are not used, the security cut-off attribute of the piece of equipment that will prevent it from operating the actual blades. Hedge trimmer safety clothing is also a must have.

The Government has frequently pushed good development and innovations inside the petrol engine industry. 2 stroke motors are rather light weight and do not need an oil container, these have the capability to trim at all orientations in addition to the wrong way up if the needs should come up. The sole negative they’ve got is definitely the awful emissions which they emit when compared to 4-stroke engines.

Ryobi claim to possess the answer, a 4 stroke model which can be considered as a no mix engine. It meets the strictest emissions assessments and apparently will work at virtually all angles. Although it has already been used in garden strimmers it’s fully predicted to be moved on to the hedge-trimmer market eventually.

Strimmer
Two handed strimmer; petrol driven

The two stroke aspect within the power industry is also experiencing substantial innovations. A 70 percent less pollution levels record throughout the collection from the motor manufacturer Tanaka in ’98 was an encouraging study. The vast majority of tool motor companies are generally looking for lesser engine emissions and environmentally friendly accreditations, however they’re always looking to improve power which can be a fine balance.

Outside the breadth of this short article, there is the continuing usage of hedge trimming tools that stick to agricultural vehicles, along with the industrial agriculture and parkland industry these deal with almost all hedges.

It’s extremely unlikely that hedge trimmers will become redundant at any point throughout the up coming fifty years due to way in which we look after our gardens so carefully now.
