Electric Hedge Trimmer, or Electric Weed Trimmer?
Apr 13, 2017

Spring brings everything back to life, including your lawn! That means you can’t keep ignoring the overgrown grass on the front walkway. To clean it up should you use a hedge trimmer or a weed trimmer to achieve the picture-perfect yard?

Let’s look at wattage.

Hedge Trimmer = 450 Watts < Weed Trimmer = 500 Watts  

These two tools are very close, but the hedge trimmer just edges out the weed trimmer in energy use.

Conclusion: Finish sprucing up your yard by using a hedge trimmer. This will help you clean up your pesky overgrown grass and weeds while using less energy! Another option to avoid energy use all together is to use manual shears on smaller landscaping projects. You’ll have the yard that makes all your neighbors jealous in no time.
