It’s starting again: that season where the sun shines and the grass grows like crazy. In the battle for control over your lawn, the right tools make all the difference. Having spent the better part of my teenage years wrestling with a stubborn gas trimmer, I can tell you that we live in a golden age of lawn care. Nowadays there are many excellent quality cordless grass trimmers that will make you forget all about the dreaded pull cord.

The best cordless electric string trimmers have a distinct advantage over both gas and corded alternative of the past: they’re light, portable, affordable to run, and easy to take to each and every corner of your garden.
