The top 5 essential garden power tools for spring

As the weather begins to brighten, we will begin to spend more time in the garden. This means bringing your garden furniture out, taking care of your spring flowers, and having guests around. Before this, we need to make sure we give our garden a bit of attention. Here are the top 5 essential garden power tools to get your lawn sorted this spring. 

#1. Lawn mower 

The lawn mower is a staple piece of equipment to ensure a garden is well maintained. Whether it’s a corded, petrol or battery powered lawnmower, it is crucial to trimming overgrown grass and weeds. As the grass begins to grow again over spring, a lawnmower can help to cut this down and keep the garden looking tidy. Before cutting, clear away any objects or rocks, and check for any wildlife to ensure it is safe to mow. To get effective results, start with a high cutting height and cut down the grass gradually; if you cut too short, you may block the blades. Click here to check out all of our lawn mowers.


#2. Grass trimmer 

Once the grass has been cut, it’s time to tidy up the edges. You want to ensure the garden looks well-manicured ready for spring. Use a grass trimmer to cut away the stray blades. Grass trimmers are also ideal to get to the hard-to-reach areas of the garden. You can see all of our grass trimmers here.


#3. Hedge trimmer 

If your garden is surrounded by shrubs and luscious greenery, we recommend making use of a hedge trimmer. These are required to shape and prune your hedges as you desire. Hedges can grow quite large, with branches growing in different directions, so a hedge trimmer helps you tidy this up. We suggest stepping back periodically to assess symmetry and adjust if necessary. View our range of hedge trimmers by clicking here.

Pressure washers are effective at giving a deep clean to remove the stubborn dirt. Most pressure washers have various settings and attachments which you can adjust to ensure you get the best results.

A leaf blower is an idea tool for clearing away fallen leaves, debris and grass clippings. This saves a lot of time and effort compared to manual raking. Alongside a leaf blower, you may wish to use a garden vacuum. Once all the debris is blown away into a pile, use a garden vacuum to suction it away to clean up the area.
