Fancy having a go at turning that privet into a peacock? Or do you just want to tidy up the hedge at the front of the house, before it threatens to take over the drive? Either way, you need some hedge cutters. Depending on how tough the job you are tackling is, you’ll want to choose your tools carefully. A lightweight battery-driven pair will be fine for small privet, but if you’ve got a large-scale beech hedge, for instance, you may be better off with a more powerful, petrol driven pair. Whatever your needs, we’ve gone in search of the best hedgecutters at the best prices for you. Whatever you choose, always follow the safety instructions, and if you’re reaching up high, make sure you have a suitable solid platform to stand on – not the kitchen chair!
