Lawn trimmers – At the cutting edge of gardening

It is the time of year when your garden is in full bloom. And with it, the roots and weeds that need to be tamed. The lawn trimmer excels particularly in those areas that regular lawn mowers cannot reach. But which one is right for your lawn? Learn more about the various kinds of mechanisms and drives as well as their advantages and disadvantages.

Spring has sprung! Before kicking off the BBQ season or letting your kids run around outside, there’s one thing that has to be done: gardening. It can be a rocky road until you get to sniff that sweet aroma of freshly cut grass. To make things easier, I’ve taken a closer look at selected lawn trimmers in the Galaxus range.

Two cutting systems – one idea

Some lawn trimmers feature reinforced nylon threads, others have plastic blades. Nylon threads tend to be the more cost effective solution. They are well suited if you are looking to carefully trim edges and areas and corners that are difficult to reach. Despite the fact that these threads rotate quickly, they barely damage wood panels and fences. Three-pronged or star-shaped toothed saw blades are well-suited to get rid of tenaciuos roots or thick grass. It is only when they come into contact with stones or other hard objects that the blades can break more easily than a nylon thread would under the same circumstances.

Telescopic stick for easier handling

If you plan on trimming your lawn for extended periods, lawn trimmers with adjustable telescopic sticks make for easier and more ergonomic handling. To make trimming your lawn more comfortable, you can adjust the length of the lawn trimmer to suit your height. The product description will tell you whether or not the device you are looking at comes with a telescopic stick.

Different types of drives

Every garden is different, and this means that every user will have different requirements for their lawn trimmer. When it comes to lawn trimmers, there are three different types of drives for you to choose from: battery-powered, electric and petrol. Check out their pros and cons at a glance.
