Garden tools for cutting and pruning

Cutting and pruning your garden plants is an essential task to keep your shrubbery tidy and to benefit your garden’s growth.  With such a wide range of garden tools available, we've created this handy breakdown of what to use and when:

 

Secateurs - secateurs are small, handheld cutters that help you to snip bushes, twigs and small branches.

• Pruner - pruner is similar to a pair of secateurs however, a pruner has longer handles and is more robust, meaning it can be used for heavy duty garden tasks.

• Loppers - loppers are also very similar to secateurs, however loppers have handles approximately 1m long, enabling you to reach higher branches.

• Shears - there are various types of shears available, which are suitable for a range of garden tasks. Hedge shears are used for cutting bulkier garden foliage. Long handled edging shears have a smaller blade which is positioned at a right angle to the handle, these are used to create garden edging by trimming lawn borders. Similarly, long handled lawn shears can be used to create garden edging by trimming overgrown grass and weeds.

• Saws - a saw is a tough, tooth edged blade used for chopping large pieces of wood. We have a range of bow saws, hack saws, board saws and hand saws available.

A spade is the triangular shaped blade and a shovel is the blunt square blade. Traditionally, a spade is used for piercing and digging due to its angled plate and a shovel is for scoping and moving soil.

 

Garden hoe
