hi, we have a small area about 10' x 5' in the garden that gets overgrown with grass. what is the best way to cut the grass? don't want to use a weed whacker. looked into the fiskars long-handled grass shears but don't think it is the right tool.
Have you considered a reel mower? Scott's brand has a good cut and sells a 14" mower for 75usd on amazon. Some are even less. The wider ones like 20" are more.
We have a area of Monkey grass about 3x20 ft. that I cut with hand shears when I don't care to hear the screams of the 2 cycle weed whacker. The shears I have aren't near the quality if Fiskars but it only needs to be clipped once / year in February and not on a regular basis as your grass..
An alternate idea would be Buffalo grass in your area that blooms at approx. 1" tall and never needs cutting. If this would be an option I suggest conferring with your county extension service to determine if Buffalo grass would even grow in that area with the soil you have. I live where it's native and know very well that it can be persnickety about where it lives.
Also the Monkey grass could be a consideration to be cut once / season.
