Flexrake Grass Shears

SORT BY:
There are some areas a lawnmower won't fit and motorized weed eaters can't access. Grass and garden shears are good hand tools to get into tight areas safely for a precise cut. Staples carries a variety of Flexrake lawn and garden shears.

Choose from a Variety of Flexrake Shears
Hand pruners are good tools for yard and garden care. Depending on the scope of the job, a variety of shears may be needed.

Pruning shears serve several gardening needs, such as shaping shrubs and bushes and trimming away dead leaves to promote new plant growth and improve crop yields. They can also cut away dying or diseased branches to prevent the disease from spreading. Most pruning shears cut through branches and vines up to .75 inches. For thicker branches, use loppers. These are long-handled pruners with a stronger grip.

The two basic types of pruning shears are bypass and anvil pruners. Bypass shears provide clean cuts because of dual curved blades. Anvil shears have straight blades. They work well on dead wood because the blades get close to flat surfaces.

Snipper shears are similar to pruners, but the blades are longer and more narrow. Snippers are often used to create floral arrangements because they work well on delicate flowers and plants.

Hedge shears have larger blades than pruner and snipper shears. These shears are often used for shaping hedges and shrubs. They have handle lengths of 8 to 10 inches for trimming small and large plants. You can also use hedge shears to cut back perennials in the fall and early spring.

Grass shears only have 4.5-inch to 5-inch blades, so you can get into small or awkward areas and cut away blades of unwanted grass. Use these shears to trim carefully around delicate trees and shrubs that a motorized trimmer could damage.

Many pairs of shears have a lock to store the blades when not in use. This feature you protects from injuries and helps keep the blade sharp.

Why Use Steel Blades
Almost all gardening tool blades are made of steel. For strong, long-lasting shears, choose a product with heat-treated carbon steel blades. The quality of the steel keeps the blade sharper for a longer time and protects it from accidental drops.

With proper maintenance and storage, a pair of Flexrake shears will continue to help care for your yard and garden for many growing seasons. Always wipe away sand and soil before locking your shears, and store the blades in a dry place to prevent rusting.

Work in the Garden in Comfort
Whether you have a small or large garden, the weight and comfort of the handle are important. Working outside in the hot sun can cause you to sweat, and a nonslip grip helps prevent slips and avoid injuries.

While you want shears that are strong, heavy shears can be tough to use. Light-duty shears cut adequately without the added weight on your arms and wrists. The type of material used in the handle greatly adds to the weight of steel blades. Choose shears with aluminum handles and rubber grips for lighter shears with a good grip.
