If you have a lawn, the chances are you own a lawnmower. But what a lot of people don’t realise is that having the best lawn isn’t just about owning the best model and spec of mower. Like all machines, mowers are subject to wear and tear, and things like the blades need replacing every now and then to keep them performing to their full potential.
Lawnmower blades work hard to keep your grass looking its best, so it’s unsurprising that they blunt, erode and get damaged with time. All of this can affect both the performance of your mower and the quality of lawn cut.
So, if you want a pristine lawn in time for summer, it’s important to replace your old, rusty blades with shiny, sharp new ones.
If you’ve cut your lawn to perfection, you’re going to need a strimmer to tidy up the edges. Irrespective of your lawnmower make or model, it’s impossible to get every strand of rogue grass that grows around your lawn perimeter or up against your garden shed.
Strimmers allow you to sharpen up the edges with ease for a professional lawn cut–something sure to catch the eye of admiring visitors!
Strimmers are a popular piece of gardening equipment, and there are numerous makes and models available on the market, from Bosch to Flymo. The strimmer make and model best for you will depend on your specific needs, including garden size, ease of use and price point and power type.
If you’ve gone to the effort of getting your lawn into shape, the chances are you want to keep it that way. The thing is, in the hot summer months, this can be easier said than done. Watering your grass is one of the only solutions to keeping it protected from the dry, hot days, but it isn’t practical or water-efficient to constantly hose your lawn.
That’s where sprinklers come in. Sprinklers can moisten your lawn with just enough water to keep your grass in perfect health, even in the midst of a British heatwave. There are plenty of sprinklers on the market, from circular to oscillating. What’s more, many sprinklers can be set up to a timer saving you the job of remembering to turn it on and off!
