Nip and Tuck Your Garden in Time For Summer
- Top Tips From Black & Decker® -

Summer is fast approaching so now’s the time to give your lawn a makeover and prepare your garden for Summer entertaining. Don’t stress if your garden looks more like a jungle than a sanctuary, Black & Decker® is here to help with a guide to the essential jobs and the ideal tools which will leave your garden in tip top condition.

Many people judge a book by its cover and this can also be said for your house and lawn. Stop your neighbours and guests gossiping by revitalising your outside space after the long wet winter, turning you garden into a summer haven.

• Step 1 - Prepare

Sweep up and rake away unwanted moss and garden debris which may have built up over the winter and could stifle new growth, with the 600w Lawnraker & Moss Remover from Black & Decker®.

The Lawnraker is the ideal tool to prepare and tidy your lawn giving it a new lease of life. With a 30cm raking width the Lawnraker is ideal for small and medium gardens and the large front loading grass box provides easy collection and disposal of grass debris.

• Step 2 – Cut

Ask any expert about the secret to a green and full lawn and they will always say focus on mowing little and often. After the winter it will take several cuts at different heights to bring your lawn back to life.

The new range of Electric Rotary Mowers from Black & Decker® boasts an easy to use central height adjustment system which changes the cutting heights and adapts the mower to different lawn conditions. With a model to suit all garden sizes, choose from a 30cm, 34cm or 38cm Electric Rotary Mower, all featuring a quiet yet powerful induction motor that requires little to no maintenance.

• Step 3 - Finishing Touches

Your lawn should now be on its way to recovery, however, there is one more step left when putting the finishing touches to your perfect garden. Edge and tidy your borders to create a perfectly finished lawn.

The Black & Decker® 18v Cordless Strimmer® String Trimmer & Edger allows you to roam free around the garden and trim those hard to mow areas such as around trees, bushes or flowerbeds. The Reflex® Intelligent Line Feed System automatically feeds out replacement line making this trimmer quicker and easier to use than traditional bump feed trimmers and by feeding out only the amount of line required, it keeps costs down too. The 18v Cordless Strimmer® String Trimmer & Edger is perfectly suited for a spring garden makeover as with 1000m of trimming per charge you can get the job done in one go.
