Works well around fence. Since my shoulder surgery, I'm unable to hold a weed whacker because of the weight. I used to pull the grass around the fence out by the root, but it took forever. I got these and was able to cut the long grass on either side of my fence in a short amount of time. It's easy to use and easy to hold. I hate yardwork, so any shortcut helps!
I have used many other edgers but none have worked as well as these.
They make easy work of even the most grassy of edges and are very comfortable and effortless to use.
Having them in the green and yellow also makes them easy to keep track of around the garden.
Don't settle on any cheaper alternatives as you will end up paying with the quality of the cut and short lifespan.
We have an irregular garden and so it's difficult to get all the edges of the lawn neat.Didn't feel we needed a trimmer so tried these. They are wonderful! Easy to use and comfortable(I have arthritis in my hands) and make tidying the edge of the lawn less of a chore.Would defiantely recommend.
Wish I had bought these years ago. I would not recommend for large areas as the thumb/forefinger action needed to use these shears can be a bit painful after a while.
they're good, sharp shears, usefull for small patches of grass (allotment use in my case). appreciated the bright colour very quickly after leaving them in the grass! if, like me you have delicate hands make sure to wear gloves as it only took a couple minutes cutting action to get massive blisters
These hand shears are sharp and are great for cutting grass in tight spots - for example against walls, edges, steps etc where the mower can't cut. It is particularly useful for small areas where it's more trouble than it's worth to get the electric trimmer/strimmer out. For small gardens it is a better acquisition than incurring the cost of an electric trimmer/strimmer but I help keep the local churchyard neat and tidy so there are uses for both tools in doing that job.
After having the shears for a few weeks and trimming around the mailbox post and a few other small areas, the shears work just fine. They are light weight, cut well and easy to use with "old" hands.
I just love these grass shears. The fact that they have rotation makes them so much easier to use. Quality made and sharp from tip and all the way down. They are very sharp but of course when they become dull because I clipped something like my hedge with them, they are very easy to sharpen. I hope they last forever. Makes my hands feel better. I have had carpal tunnel hand surgery in the past and find the shears helps me to clip my grass with ease because of the handle configuration. Right or left hand is easy with the rotating head. Just love, love love them.
I didn’t want to invest in a powered grass trimmer (NOR did I want a trimming process that sliced up my hosta leaves or carved up the wooden surface of my fence/stairs/deck skirting) so I tried these. I love them. The blades are nice and sharp, and swivel a full 360-degrees to get at whatever angle I need, then stay in that position while I’m using them. They’re comfortable to hold and use in either hand. A terrific, simple tool.

I have not used this yet, but the PLUSSSS is..The blade rotates. The only thing that can go wrong is, it's not sharp enough. Will see...Will update only if the blade can't cut butter.
Best $$ I ever spent. I cut about 250 feet of Liriope border grass with these grass shears. This border grass was years old and full. I pull of the shears would cut a large section of grass. Easy on the hands. The shears did not chew up the grass it's a sharp straight cut. Buy them you will not regret it.
I like the weight and comfort of these garden shears but the downside is they frequently get locked in the "closed" position when actively trying to cut grass. You'll be cutting/actively squeezing the handle, make a cut (so now the blades are "closed") and the blades then will not open. Why? The open/close button on the handle has been moved ever so slightly into the "closed" position. Aggravating.
so great! i just used these today to cut down my acres & acres of morning glory vines! winter is pretty much going to start tomorrow here (mn), and all my morning glory vines are drooping, half-dead, and definitely no longer flowering. i like to get them off the trellises before the snow flies because they just look ugly. these shears made cutting them down a piece of cake! it was like using a giant pair of scissors--nice & sharp, easy to manipulate the blade angle, and loved that i COULD change the blade angle--came in very handy! oh, and they work great for trimming grass around my peony bushes, my hydrangea trees, and the edge of my sidewalk.
The steel blades are quite sharp, and the ergonomics are a treat. My only criticism is that there may be too many plastic-on-plastic moving parts. It is difficult to know how long they'll last. That said, this is not a professional gardeners tool; it is a "happy homeowner" tool. So, for so long as it is not abused --- not asked to accomplish feats it was not designed to do --- it will be fine. I'm happy to have it
Needed something to clip away weeds but the irrigation system feeder hoses wouldn't allow using a string trimmer in the raised bed vegetable gardens. These grass shears work perfectly. Initially they blades didn't seem to open fully for some reason but within a 10 minutes I must have gotten the hang of it better and they worked just fine. I like the ability to angle the blades. The complaints others have about the locking mechanism getting in the way is not a problem with mine.
This is absolutely the best sheer I’ve ever used! I’ve owned several clippers throughout the many years and I haven’t found the perfect sheer until now. They cut like a pair of sharp scissors. Providing angle cuts is sometimes useful. The only drawback is your hand may be pinched between the 2 inner parts of the handle when closing tight. This is avoided by holding the tool correctly and not letting your palm interfere with the closure. Let your fingers and base of your thumb close the scissors. Other than that this is the best scissors I’ve ever owned & operated. And I’m really fussy when it come to sheers.
