Have you been tired of uneven grass on your lawn? Has the weed destroyed your garden? If your answers to both of these questions were yes, you need the best string trimmer to look after your lawn. If you are new to gardening, you may have difficulty using a string trimmer on your lawn. So, I wrote this guide explaining How to Use String Trimmer.

When I first got my hands on a string trimmer, I had difficulty learning how a string trimmer works. I thought others might be having the same problems as me so I put together a set of steps in a simpler form, so you guys don’t have to suffer as much. So, without further delay, let’s get to know how to use a weed trimmer or, in other words, how to use a string trimmer.

How to use string trimmer

If you are a beginner, using a string trimmer might seem a hectic task. Trust me, as soon as you get familiar with it; you will get used to its features.

To use a string trimmer, you need to have safety gears first and clear out obstacles. Next, you have to mix the right amount of fuel to start the string trimmer—no need to scratch your head, as I will discuss each step further in detail. So, keep on reading!

Before using a string trimmer, ensure that you wear protective gear like gloves, goggles, earplugs, etc. If you do not wear them, you may get injured as it is better to be safe than sorry. Also, make sure that you don’t wear too tight clothes as it will restrict your movement. Avoid wearing shorts as you can get hit by rocks; it is better to wear denim.
Most importantly, you have to protect your eyes because debris and other pebbles can cause serious injury.

Clear Out the Area

Before you learn how to use a weed trimmer ‎or string trimmer on your lawn, make sure your chosen area has no other obstacles like cables or other metal stuff. When I was using the string trimmer, I accidentally chopped off the water hose cable, and I do not want you guys to go through something like this.

Also, avoid using a string trimmer if there are bystanders around you. There are some possible changes that dust or even sharp grass blades can injure anyone standing near the string trimmer. Most importantly, make sure that string trimmers must not be operated around young children.

Another thing to consider is to avoid parking your cars near the area where you want to use the string trimmer. Grass blades from the trimmer can easily damage the paint or glass of your vehicle. It can even crack open the windows of your car.

Start the String Trimmer

To start the string trimmer first, you need to prepare a good amount of fuel to have it running. I have a two-stroke engine, so the quantities I will be sharing here are not for the 4-stroke engines. I mixed gas with lubricating oil and then filled the string trimmer’s tank.

The good oil to the gas ratio that worked for me was 1:50. I recommend not using a 4-stroke motor oil because it has additives and can damage your string trimmer. Two-stroke oil works best because it can burn without causing any damage.

Now, turn on the ignition switch and then the choke. You have to push the primer button at least eight times to prime the engine. Carefully pull the cord repeatedly until the string trimmer starts. You can let it run for 10 seconds and then switch off the choke. Start the string trimmer without choke; if it doesn’t run without choke, you can turn on the choke and restart the engine.

Cutting Techniques to follow

Okay, so now you know how to use a string trimmer, it is also important to learn proper cutting techniques because without that, you won’t be able to get that picture-perfect lawn. I have mentioned some of the handiest techniques below. You can follow these by using a string trimmer on your lawn. ‎

Edging involves using the string trimmer so that the string is vertical. I would suggest such type of cut, most probably for the driveways or along the edges of walkways. Be careful because a lot of debris and wild pebbles can come up your way.
