Gas Powered Hedge Trimmers
I have about 80 native grass plants that were planted on a steep slope with the objective of holding the soil on the slope, and they do a good job of that.
Problem is, every early spring I pretty much break myself using manual hedge clippers to cut these plants back to about 10 inches.
Anyone have a view as to whether a gas powered hedge clipper like those made by Echo would be strong enough to get through these reeds?
I tried an electric one that I have (used for light duty on boxwood bushes) and it was real slow going with constant jamming even though I had the blades sharpened last fall. The electric one just doesn't have the power to get through these things.
