Grass shears


Grass shears

Grass shears differ from pruning shears in being long-handled and having the handles at right-angles to the blades. They can be used to cut grass from a standing position. Two kinds are available: with the blades horizontal and with the blades vertical. Horizontal blades are used to remove grasses which have not been cut by the lawn mower. Vertical blades are used for trimming the edges of a lawn.
