The size of your yard and the kind of trimming you need to do determine the best type of string trimmer for you. Corded trimmers work well for light trimming on small lawns with few obstacles. Cordless models give you more mobility. Gasoline-powered trimmers combine mobility and power for heavier cutting around large landscapes.
Most people view lawn mowers as the most important product for their yards, but other products like string trimmers and lawn edges are just as vital. Even though these products can’t mow the lawn, they do give your yard a well-manicured look.
