Garden Ready

Found yourself living at the garden centre recently? We know the feeling – Spring has most certainly sprung and it’s time to get back in the garden. Getting your garden ready is no mean feat after the long winter months and looking for the perfect landscape with which to work on is not easy.

That’s why we’ve planted together (excuse the pun) these garden ideas, from who’s got the best deals on tools, like a lawn mower, hedge trimmer and much more, to garden storage for all your power tools. It’s bank holiday weekend, it’s a gardeners world out there, so it’s time to go outdoors and get your garden ready!

Garden Power

For those who still have the real stuff – the biggest pain of them all is the grass. The lovely, lush green stuff just keeps growing. All you need is some outdoor power a lawn mower and strimmer, but they’re not cheap items.

Clas Ohlson has 9% exclusive cashback and 20% off garden power tools. Including lawn mowers, strimmers, hedge and shrub trimmers, leaf blowers and much more. Here are a few of our top picks:

If you’re looking for ease, value and a space saver check out the Black & Decker ST5530CM 550 W Grass Trimmer – RRP £79.99, 20% saving makes it £63.99. A trimmer, edger and lawnmower all in one. This handy piece of kit is electric, the lawnmower has an edging wheel for perfect, concise edging and is perfect for small gardens. The wheeled base attachment converts the trimmer into a lawn mower.

The McCulloch M51-120M Classic Lawnmower is a great price with Clas Ohlson’s discount, RRP is £199.99 but it’s now £159.99. This petrol lawnmower has a 51cm blade and adjustable cutting height of 3.5-9cm. Great for those stubborn areas, keeping your lawn beautiful and well-maintained. There’s even the option to mulch the cuttings, shredding and returning the grass back to your lawn as fertiliser.

Once you’ve done the grass, it’s then time to neaten up your lawn edges and get rid of those pesky weeds. We find cordless tools are always handy, so make sure to check out the Cocraft LXC GT18 Cordless Grass Trimmer. RRP at £59.99, it’s now £47.99 at Clas Ohlson. This bit of kit neatly trims weeds and lawn borders, with an adjustable auxiliary handle, telescopic shaft and pivoting head.

Garden Storage

Keeping your garden tools clean and dry is more important than you may think. Most tools are susceptible to rust, and pots can carry disease and fungal spores. The best place to store them is in a dry and secure place.

A shed is perfect for garden storage. Garden sheds come in various materials and sizes. There are plastics sheds, metal sheds and wooden sheds – all these options are great for storage of tools, and places like B&Q with 3% cashback offer small, medium and large options. Depending on what you’re after – metal sheds offer security of your items, so this would be a better storage option for your expensive tools such as lawn mowers, grass trimmers, hedge trimmers etc. Plastic provide easy installation and if you’re looking for style, wooden is the one for you.
