How To Choose The Right Trimming Tool

With the arrival of spring and warmer weather, it's a good time to trim the grass and branches in your yard. After a long, cold winter, your yard has probably become overgrown with weeds or deadwood. Pruning of dead and overgrown branches can help plants grow better in the coming spring and summer while also making your house look better for people passing by.

Choosing the right pruning tool is a great way to help you finish pruning with less effort. In general, you only need a few basic pruning tools to clean up your lawn or garden. For the health of your trees and shrubs, it's important to keep the blades clean and sharp in between each use.

Hand Pruners

Hand pruners are the basic tool for most jobs and can cut branches up to 1 inch in diameter. Choose either bypass pruners, which cut with a clean, scissor-like action, or anvil pruners, which have a single blade that presses against a bar.  TURBRO anvil pruners use ratcheting and adjustable blades to help you to cut and trim different-sized stems, branches and deadwood with less effort. It's a basic tool for beginner and pro gardeners alike.



Bypass loppers resemble hand pruners except they have long, extendable handles. Loppers are very useful for reaching down into tangled shrubs or reaching up to high tree branches. TURBRO bypass loppers can cut limbs up to 1-5/8 inches in diameter while the handle can be extended up to 41 inches  to reach higher or deeper places for trimming.

Pruning Saws 


Pruning saws have special blades that cut on the pull stroke and self-clean to prevent binding in fresh, sap-filled wood. A hand-held saw is suitable for work at ground level or you can invest in a pole-mounted saw for overhead cuts of tree branches that are damaged or in danger of falling on your  home or power lines.

Hedge Shears


Hedge shears have long, scissor-like blades for trimming hedges. They are used to trim away dead areas and to give your hedges and shrubs a neat, uniform appearance. Electric and gas versions are also available if you have a large amount of hedges that need to be trimmed each year. 


You are now ready to choose the right trimming tool to beautify your garden or yard and get ready for a beautiful spring.
