Looking to buy Garden Shears & Loppers?After a while, an untended garden looks less like a lawn and more like a wild jungle. If your garden’s suffering from a severe case of unsightly overgrowth, it’s time to shop products from OnBuy’s garden shears and loppers category!
The average British garden is filled with a surprising variety of different vegetation. Trees, hedgerows, bracken and thickets might all have their place in your garden’s ecosystem - and don’t forget the grass! With the sheer variety of greenery out there, you’ll need a range of lopping, chopping and trimming tools to cut it all back. Let’s examine them in a little more detail now!
Let’s start with garden loppers. These nasty looking implements have thick, powerful jaws designed to cut through twigs and branches of trees. The largest kind of tool in this edit, the long handles of garden loppers give you exceptional reach so you can get to the tops of hedges and trees. Some garden loppers have special gear systems built into the blades which can increase the cutting force of their blades without any extra effort on your part. If you need even more power to cut through thick branches or tree trunks, it’s worth investing in one of the heavy-duty mechanical cutters in our chainsaws category.
If you’re dealing with smaller cuts, using garden loppers will make your garden upkeep much harder. That’s what garden shears are for. Shears are perhaps the most useful (and often used) kind of garden hand tools around, and there are different types for different tasks.
The most often seen garden shears are pruning shears. These small shears have even smaller blades for delicate tasks. You can use pruning shears for (you guessed it!) pruning small twigs and offshoots to increase the attractiveness of plants in your garden and contribute to their health. Pruning sheers are a must-have even if you’re not a dedicated gardener. If you have a houseplant collection, these tools will help you care for your indoor darlings as well.
Another type of gardening sheers are grass sheers. These implements are vital if you have a big lawn. Also known as edging sheers, grass sheers have long handles and long blades. They look similar to garden loopers save for one key difference: grass shears have their blades set at a right angle. This allows you to trim grass with precision from a standing position. As their other name suggests, edging shears are best deployed at the edges of your garden lawn, next to a pathway or fences. Pair them with a lawn mower and a strimmer for a complete lawn care package!
Shears and loppers FAQs
Which type of garden shears do I need for my home?
When it comes to garden shears, there are many options out there. From basic pruning shears, to thinning shears, lopping, or hedge shears, the right style will vary depending on your gardening requirements and abilities. For controlling unwanted hedge growth, opt for hedge shears. However, or trimming the roses, a pair of basic prining shears will do the trick!
What are the different types of shears available out there?
As touched on above, there's a huge range of garden shears such as thinning shears, pruning shears, lopping shears, and hedge sheers, but you can also find a wide selection of pruners often included in this category. This includes bypass, anvil, and even needle-nose pruners.
Which one is best: bypass or anvil shears?
When it comes to choosing between anvil and bypass garden shears, you need to keep in mind that bypass shears are better for cuts, whereas anvil shears crush stems and branches. Also, bypass shears will come in handy when you need to get into tight spots, something hefty anvil shears struggle to do.
How do I choose a lopper?
When it comes to loppers, you need to take into account the power and weight of the model. It might be best to choose a lighter pair of loppers, that has a smaller cutting capacity - ideal for those who have limited mobility or strength.
What are the different types of loppers?
There are two main types of loppers: anvil loopers and bypass loppers. The bypass lopper is the most common one and is most often found in private gardens. Anvil loppers, on the other hand, are suitable for more heavy-duty, professional gardening jobs.
