Trimming Bushes with Garden Shears or Hedge Trimmer?

I have garden shears and an electric hedge trimmer. I have relied mostly on the hedge trimmer to keep the bushes neat. But, on this hot autumn afternoon, I thought it was too much to unwind the long extension cord, so I opted to use garden shears.

The front yard has just a few bushes, most of which grow somewhat slowly. But I have one that grows like crazy and needs more care to be manageable. As it turns out, I liked the result of using the garden shears! I have seen the result after using the hedge trimmer and I must say that there is little difference to my eye. I saved on electricity and  also received a very good workout!

On occasions where I only need to trim one of the bushes and time permits, I will probably use garden shears. With multiple bushes and less time, I will opt for the hedge trimmer.
