Strimmers may not be at the top of shopping lists when it comes to gardening tools, but it’s always a great idea to have one handy for those hard to reach spots that your mower can’t get to.

They are the perfect tool for those choppy looking edges often left after a good lawn mowing, or for those clusters of grass around garden furniture, trees and anything else you might find in your garden. Read on to see Kitchen Garden’s strimmer selection for keeping your lawn looking trim and neat.
