Although the summer has long since gone and the country appears to be settling in for a wet autumn as the nights draw in, there is still plenty of work for gardeners to be getting on with throughout October.
Leaf clearance is one of the tasks that should be right at the top of anyone's to-do list – as it is important to keep on top of this in order to avoid the garden becoming swamped.
Garden vacuums and garden blowers could be the perfect garden tools for anyone who wishes to keep their green spaces tidy.
Here at MowDIRECT, we boast the UK's widest selection of these products, with more than 50 different models to choose from – so there is something to suit every budget.
Hand-held garden blower-vacs are ideal for anyone who is concerned that there could be some leaves to clear up from hard-to-reach areas.
Wheeled Lawn & Litter Vacuums and Leaf Sweepers are better for the fast and efficient collection of leaves from areas such as lawns.
On the topic of lawns – these will still require careful maintenance throughout October.
Whenever the weather offers some respite from the downpours, gardeners may wish to give the area a last once-over before the winter properly sets in.
It might be a good idea to keep the blades high and not shear the grass too short at this time of year.
The lawn is also likely to benefit from scarifying, aerating and moss removal – and the Einhell BG-SC 2240P Petrol Lawn Scarifier is a great tool for this job.
At MowDIRECT, this is on special offer – reduced to just £279.95, which is considerably cheaper than its RRP of £479.95.
This is over £100 cheaper than any equivalent model on the market and it offers the kind of build quality and reliability that has come to be expected of the German manufacturing firm Einhell.
Suitable for lawns up to around 1,000 square metres in size, its 36 hardened steel blades are designed specifically for the removal of moss.
With all the garden waste being generated by these tasks, recycling will become more important than ever.
The most cost effective solution could be to get hold of one of our Garland BG50 Petrol Chipper Shredders.
This is the lowest priced model of this particular kind of kit that we have stocked and is available at the discounted price of £399.95.
It can handle leaves, shrubs, clippings and greenery in no time at all – as well as larger branches – and it is lightweight and highly manoeuvrable.
Wall climbers, hedges and other tall plants will require a great deal of pruning and trimming at this time of year – and the task should not be overlooked.
We are currently selling the MD 4-in-1 Multi Tool for £179.95 as an exclusive – and it delivers unparalleled versatility that makes it the perfect tool for keeping plants in shape.
