The good news about these is that there almost no bad reviews about this set of shears and that is always a very good sign indeed. That is in our opinion directly related to the lower price point.

Many garden shears of high quality cost around £30. With these selling at around half that price, buyers are a tad more forgiving in being too critical about these.

These will do the job for any gardener who needs to cut the edge of a lawn, or trim a hedge or shrubs. They don't have any of the fancy gearing mechanisms, so a bit more manual to use than that type.

These are in our opinion a good basic set of shears and will be fine if they are only used a few times a year for lighter types of cutting.


I am someone who enjoys a little gardening. Now I am not someone who spend hours in the garden, but I do like both my front and back gardens to look really nice. Well kept lawns, neatly trimmed hedges, and borders filled with plants, make a huge difference, to how your property looks.
