Compact strimmer suggestions.

I’ve built a climbing frame for the kids in the garden. I thought I could just use the strimmer to keep the grass short around the posts, but it’s a real pain. My strimmer is pretty rubbish. I’ve been looking around but can’t find a good compact strimmer for all the fiddly corners. 

Has any got any suggestions? Ideally cordless. Thanks

    I don't know about strimmers but that is a splendid climbing frame!

    I just use hand shears for fiddly bits. It's quicker and neater (and quieter) for most jobs.

    Magnificent climbing frame! I use shears too.

    Thank you. I’ll have a look at shears. Looks like there are some electric ones with a long handle. That could work.
