If you want perfectly cut grass in every part of your garden, no matter how difficult it is to reach, then you must have a string trimmer. A garden string trimmer is a piece of gardening and landscaping equipment which is used to cut grass, weeds, and small shrubs. Garden string trimmers are known by a variety of alternatives name including strimmer, weed whacker, weed eater, weed whip, or grass trimmer. These tools are commonly sold at gardening supply stores, and they can be very useful in gardens of all sizes. In a small garden, a string trimmer may in fact be preferable to a lawn mower. The design of a string trimmer includes a string mounted to a rotating head and partially covered with a protective shield. When the device is turned on, the string rotates at very high speed, becoming extremely stiff, while the shield keeps the user’s body away from the rapidly moving string. The stiff string can cut through a wide variety of materials. As it wears away, more string comes out of a spool, or the user can manually advance the string.
Other varieties have clips which snap onto short strings, allowing people to change the string when it becomes too short or worn. Choosing a trimmer completely depends upon how much area you are maintaining. If your garden is small, then you certainly don’t require a high-powered gas trimmer. A light-weight electric trimmer is adequate for small lawns. The best string trimmer for your garden is the one that is easiest for you to operate, gets your job done quickly, gives you great looking results, doesn’t require a lot of maintenance and doesn’t cost you a fortune.
