6 of the best strimmers for tidying up your garden

6 of the best strimmers for tidying up your garden

Beautiful gardens are not created without the blood, sweat, and tears of busy gardeners. The best gardens are the direct result of hours of hard work, and it’s a constant battle to make sure things continue to look neat and tidy.

Gardeners are continuously faced with pests, weeds, and plants that simply refuse to grow. To win this fight, gardeners must equip themselves with the best gear on offer. That means investing in tools like lawn mowers and strimmers.

The lawn mower is probably the most important purchase a gardener will make, but the strimmer is a close second. These devices keep your lawn edges and borders tidy by cutting back weeds and long patches of grass. Basically, these products handle everything that your lawn mower can’t reach. They are essential tools for keeping your garden looking its best. Read more…

              6 of the best cordless lawn mowers for your garden

              6 of the best cordless lawn mowers for your garden

              You can fill your garden with a wide range of beautiful flowers, shrubs, and trees, but it’s still going to look tired if your lawn is out of control. There is no amount of water features and hanging baskets that can make up for an ugly lawn.

              The first step towards creating an oasis in your garden is to cut the grass. A neat and tidy lawn looks great, and it’s actually pretty easy to achieve. Once you deal with any bare or patchy sections, you just need to make sure that it doesn’t grow too long. For this, all you need is a lawn mower.

              There are absolutely loads of options out there for every type of garden and gardener. You can take your pick from a long list of electric, cordless, manual, and petrol devices, and the best model for you will really depend on the size and shape of your lawn (and how often you are going to use it). If you are working with a smaller space, you should probably opt for a cordless lawn mower. Read more…

                          5 of the best indoor garden systems for growing herbs and veggies

                          Gardening at home is not limited to people with large gardens — or even to people with sunny windowsills. With the right tools, anyone who wants to grow their own vegetables or fresh herbs indoors can find a way to do it.

                          Indoor gardening kits range from high tech to very simple. Your needs will vary based on your budget, the plants you want to grow, and the space you have available, but you’ll likely be able to pull something off, even if you have to hang your garden on the wall. We believe in you.

                          What should I grow?

                          If you just want to start your plants indoors, then move them to an outdoor garden, your crop options are pretty much endless. If you must grow your garden entirely indoors, though, there are a few plants that have the best chance of thriving. Read more…
