As the May bank holiday passes, there are ample opportunities to tidy up that garden. Here are some landscaping tips for your garden just in time to make it great again for all those summer parties.
You may have done loads of planting and are sowing vigorously to get that vegetable patch up and going already. Nevertheless, there are some big tidy up jobs that may need to be considered and gardening tools you may be needing to help you get them done efficiently.
Here are some tasks, tips, and tools you may be needing for those bigger jobs.
Kick-off with a quick walk about and inspection of your property with a notepad and pencil. Look out for potential jobs.
There is going to be an accumulation of evergreen growth and new spring growth as we emerge from the winter months. This involves a range of brush clearing jobs that include:
These may pose higher level landscaping tasks that require power tools in some cases.
This is our standard go-to task all year round in the growing season but is especially necessary as spring growth emerges and we spend more time outdoors. There is a range of Lawnmowers that can be motored to cope with every size lawn.
Choose from push lawn mowers or the more powerful self-propelled lawn mowers necessary for larger garden areas.
A decent lawnmower should allow you to modulate cutting height and width to adapt to the level of growth at hand.
Look out for sustainable options that don’t generate fumes and heavy emissions. An added benefit is the ability of some lawnmowers to mulch whilst also collecting litter.
There are a variety of options from the Garden Power Tool Range in the Push versus Self-Propelled options such as:
Pruning involves removing branches, deadwood and damaged plants that have been broken by extreme winter weather or overgrown.
Pruning also encourages and sculpts new growth.
Light tidying up long grass and weeds around the garden requires a more lightweight domestic grass trimmer . This will include working around nooks and crannies as you tidy up in areas that cannot be accessed with a conventional lawnmower.
Light trimming is necessary around the lawn borders or around garden furniture, installations, pots or ornaments.
If you have a complicated lawn or larger gardens, cordless trimmers & brushcutters will help you go further out into your property.
Clearing dense scrub and undergrowth on undeveloped land will require a more heavy-duty industrial brushcutter that has a stronger motor.
If you have a hedge running around your perimeter or front garden, you will need shears and trimming tools to give you access to higher hedges. The same tools can be applied to ornamental topiary that will be needing a trim and tidy up around about now.
A good pair of garden shears will always be a precise tool for trimming small bushes or hedges or finessing your work.
Larger-scale hedges with more mature growth may require a more powerful tool to cut through such as;
When it comes to walls, structures, pots, and fixed garden furniture or stone ornaments, you will be needing a power washer to get at the buildup of moss or possibly bird poop that would have accumulated over winter and spring.
Powerwashers have different settings and fine nozzles to help you attack finer details with precision and save on using harmful chemicals. Nevertheless, be careful with the power settings to ensure you don’t damage more fragile structures or dislodge bots of your limestone-based ornaments.
If you have an abundance of Garden architecture to tend to, consider the AC Brooklyn 7hp Pressure Washer.
This device comes with a heavy-duty vertical trolley, fitted with pneumatic tyres & a well-powered Lifan 7hp/212cc Petrol Engine that can help you roam far out for long periods of time in a bigger property. It also includes:
This 5 in 1 tool will give you a decent working height of 2.4m when attacking hedges and branches when using its extension pole
The following attachment options include:
Don’t forget to protect yourself given the high powered tools you may be using - you’ll need to take some cues from those in the construction sector and kit yourself out with some basic safety gear.
