Hedge trimmers can help transform a garden through taming any unruly hedges and bushes. However, it can be quite overwhelming when researching hedge trimmers to know where to start.

The best hedge cutters create a neat and even cut but are also easy to use and manoeuvre into trickier angles. When considering which hedge trimmer is right for you, it’s important to think about what capability you need from your tool. Do you have tall hedges? Or hedges that are down the end of the garden, far away from any plug points?

We've put together this list of petrol, battery and electric hedge trimmers that we recommend based on prices, ease of use and capabilities.
