Our Guide to Garden Machinery – Finding the right tool for the job

An overgrown garden can be a nightmare, a job that requires specialised tools and attention. With so many power tool options, which ones the right choice? Join us as the British Garden Centres team delve deep into finding the right tools for the job!

Things to look out for

Finding the right tool can be difficult, but once you find it they can be with you for years upon years. Before purchasing be sure to keep an eye out for a few key aspects.

Size & Power – Both the size of the task and the tool are a key aspect. Getting a tool too weak will result in a much more tedious process, either with difficulty cutting or having to make multiple charging trips. For smaller gardens with power tools, a 2Ah battery will be your most efficient option, whilst a 4Ah Battery will be perfect for longer sessions.

Storage – Storage space can be a harsh limiting factor for upgrading your toolbox, but there are plenty of mini choices too! The Flymo Turbo Lite Electric Hover Mower finds a nice blend of power, size and storability. Its lightweight design and folding handle allow it to easily hang up inside a shed after use.
