To give your freshly cut lawn a truly crisp look, shear all the bed edges. Long-handled border shears can simplify the job, enabling you to stand directly over the edge of the grass rather than stooping or bending. The hollow metal handles are 33 inches long, there is a plastic buffer at the base to reduce jarring as the blades shut, and the blades themselves are coated to guard against rusting. The shears also work well for the edges of garden beds, driveways, sidewalks, around trees, or anyplace the mower can't quite reach. After using them, simply wipe the blades with an oiled cloth.
