Gardening brings pleasure of giving to and taking from the nature. There are several tools that gardeners should know and must have it. One of the garden tools is the garden shears. A pair of garden shears is the perfect tool for any gardening project. Although in most cases, garden shears look like a pair of scissors, they are designed to prune and trim almost any garden flower or plant. The typical garden shears has two sharp, stainless-steel, serrated blades. Oftentimes, it has a curved section on the blade to cut through thicker items, such as twine, thick stems, and wire. In some cases, garden shears is a broad term used to describe a wide range of shears. For example, there are also flower shears. They have two anvil-shaped blades that narrow to a point. They are ideal for cutting flowers and reaching tight or compact areas of a plant or flower.
The wide range of garden shears can also encompass grass shears. Grass shears are best used for trimming the grass or plant-life that surrounds structures such as fence posts, sprinkler heads, brickwork or bird fountains. They can be manual, electric, or battery powered. Grass shears typically have either two long, sharp blades that are pointed or multiple shorter blades that move rapidly to cut grass or even to trim plants. Usually the ones that move rapidly are powered by electricity or batteries.
