    Having a warped and twisted mind, I was thinking of a different bush when I saw the title!! ;)

    That looks great! What did you use to trim that? I have a small electric trimmer I bought and tried using to trim the bushes in front of my house and they don't look even close to as nice as yours do! Probably just user error on my part as I've never liked doing yard work but the wife insisted on it being done.

    I use the basic trimming tools. I did try the pine straw in a bag and it is more money but lots more straw and less sticks and crap. I found a good trim don’t go too fast and don’t take too much off at one time. I have a habit of letting it get out of control it makes the job much bigger.

    best thing i ever did is throw away my 15 yr old homelite!!! I can NOT stand having to work on something ....BEFORE I use it to do something!!! $$$ bought a Stihl....and haven't done chit except USE IT (yearly tune up..by dealer $20) considered it the time saved NOT working on it as MONEY EARNED!!

    FYI...the hedge trimmer attachment WILL go thru 3 wire twisted barb fence...no problem.( :()...for those who might ask.

    I have the 5 pull rule on 2 cycle stuff,if it doesn't go somethings wrong!We have ethanol gas here-almost impossible [although if you try hard enough to find it in the far stix] to find ethanol free premium.The ethanol stuff is hard on anyones hoses/carbs.I bought a new carb for my stihl leafblower [cheaper than a kit] bolt on and go ;).I agree you get what you pay for! the cheap menards stuff if in the neghbors trash after a couple years when the better stuff does last MANY years even with crap gas!! Later Steve!!
