Tools to tackle an overgrown laurel hedge
The hedge only got a light trim (by hand) last year and has gone mad this year. There is now a lot of work to do including some pretty thick branches. I no longer have the time to cut it all by hand and need to be a bit more drastic.
Can anyone recommend something powered to tackle this? Ordinary hedge trimmers aren't really up to laurel. I'd quite like to get something cordless. Would petrol or electric be better? Need to do something asap as the hedge is under threat of being replaced by a fence!
