Owning one of the best garden shredders is essential if you find yourself facing a pile of twigs, branches and leafy materials. When the other options are spending the day manually cutting them down to fit into your green waste bin, or driving to the local tip, it's a no-brainer to invest in a shredder that does the hard work for you.

While a strimmer will keep your hedges and shrubs in check, a garden shredder is practical for cutting this waste down to size, and sprucing up your garden design.
