With the summer fully in bloom, it's no surprise you're on the hunt for the best garden shears.

Whether your outdoor space is overgrown or didn't quite survive the winter chill, a good pair of garden shears is sure to help you sort everything out. Regain control of your outdoor space, make way for gorgeous flowers and greenery to bloom, and get those unruly plants in check.

There's nothing worse than dedicating a day to get out in the sun, and get some much-needed gardening done, to find your shears just don't cut it anymore... literally.

Shears vs. secateurs

Secateurs are commonly used for small tasks, like trimming plants and thin branches, whereas shears take on the bigger jobs. Garden shears are like the secateurs' big brother, taking on tasks like trimming hedges and cutting those hard to reach branches. It helps that shears are commonly long-handled and telescopic, making them great for reaching higher trees.

Rusty and blunt blades, get ready to be replaced, with the best ergonomic and heavy-duty garden shears available right now.
