The best cordless strimmers are the perfect tools for tackling those areas of your garden that lawn mowers just can't reach reach — and are a far easier way to trim tricky-to-cut spots than with shears or secateurs. But the big benefit, as with the best cordless lawn mowers, is that you won't be restrained by the location of the nearest power socket. This makes them ideal for larger gardens and avoids the need for fiddly extension leads.
