Just to be clear, this is not about trimming a bush, mine or hers although I'm reminded of .... A little song entitled: She was only the Hedgelayer's daughter... But you'd always catch her trimming her bush Tish boom. I'm here all week..... Anyway, I have about 50 yards of hedge that I have to trim. The top will need taking down with a chainsaw which I own. The sides need trimming up fairly nicely. Had I better just buy a cheapish petrol hedgestrimmer for this or will the chainsaw do it reasonably well?
