"H" is for Hedge Shears

 If you have boxwood, or any type of hedges for that matter, you need a pair of hedge shears.

True Temper® sent me these hedge shears with wood handles and comfort grips to clean up the boxwood:

As you can see the hedge shears work wonders!  They are lightweight, easy to manuever and very comfortable on your hands.
We just moved into a new home, the saltbox project, and there is a ton of yardwork to be done.

First up: weed and trim the boxwood hedges:

Amazing what a few minutes with True Temper® hedge shears can do:

One tree takes just a few minutes but I have 26 boxwood lining the pool so after a few hours it was all trimmed up and looking good:

And while I was busy using my new hedge shears I noticed the heavy duty landscapers (who were busy filling in the koi pond right next to me) had True Temper® wheelbarrows:

You know if the professionals are using the products then they must be good!

Up next - black edging to really tidy up the lawn.

Thank you to the folks at Ames True Temper® for supplying the hedge shears.  I received no compensation for writing this review and all thoughts and opinions are my own.

  1. They look great! I've been thinking about lining the walkway to my house with boxwoods.
