How to prune your hedges like a professional
Thanks to the ultimate combination of engineering expertise and skilful design, Einhell’s hedge trimmers can help you achieve perfect results every time
Hedges are a simple way to smarten up your outdoor space and give you a little extra privacy. But, just like many plants in your garden, they need to be regularly pruned to stay in top condition. Fortunately, with Einhell’s extensive range of petrol, cordless and electric hedge trimmers, the upkeep couldn’t be easier.
Einhell is Germany’s market leader in creating innovative gardening tools that are built for precision, power and ease of use. So, it should come as no surprise that every item in this range boasts a sleek design and is incredibly safe and comfortable to use, without compromising on efficiency.
Hedge plants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, which is why each of Einhell’s trimmers offers different features and benefits. The model you need will depend on your desired level of power, as well as the height and thickness of your hedge.
Petrol hedge trimmers, such as the GE-PH 2555 A, are particularly good at cutting through thick, woody hedges, while an electric trimmer, such as the GH-EH 4245, is more comfortable to use, so it’s a reliable choice when you’re dealing with simpler growth. The cordless trimmers from the Power X-Change range, including the GE-CH 1846Li, allow for maximum freedom of movement and flexibility.
Just remember, always check for birds nests before you start trimming your hedge, and don’t trim between March and August, as this is when many birds will start settling. It’s against the law to disturb or destroy a bird’s nest while it’s in use.
The Power X-Change difference
Einhell’s Power X-Change range features a collection of cordless gardening tools that use battery technology instead of petrol. That makes them better for the environment, plus it’s good news for you too, because cordless devices are safe, portable and easy to store.
You can share the same 18-volt battery between any of the 200-plus compatible pieces in this innovative range, which means you won’t have to buy a new battery every time you purchase a new tool!
