Hints & Tips
With July finally upon us, many people up and down the country will be celebrating by taking it easy on a deck chair outdoors – or running around and playing in the case of the little ones.
However, if there is one thing the warmer temperatures mean for gardeners it is that there is plenty of time to really get to grips with your favourite pastime!
What with the summer usually meaning drier conditions, now is the perfect opportunity to keep your lawn in shape and maintain a regular mowing routine.
If your main concern is the lawn in your own back garden, then the rest of the family will benefit from this being kept in shape too, as everything will be a little tidier if you want to invite people round for a barbecue!
Here at MowDIRECT, we have the largest selection of lawn mowers in the country – so there is bound to be something ideally tailored to your needs!
The Greenworks G-MAX 40Li-40V Lithium-Ion 3-in-1 Cordless Lawn Mower is a premium-grade cordless machine that has performance levels that are comparable to a conventional petrol-based model.
This is ideal for those who are looking to move away from petrol – and it has excellent specifications, delivering up to 40 minutes of continuous discharge on a single two hour charge time.
Another advantage of an electric mower is that you will not be exposed to harmful fumes – and this is also beneficial for the environment.
Its canvas grass collector can hold up to 50 litres of cuttings – so this could be the perfect machine for gardeners who don't want to deal with having a cord trailing behind them when they're mowing.
We stock this mower for just £259 including VAT, which is a considerable saving on the RRP of £399.
Alternatively, the Einhell RG-PM 51VS 4-in-1 Hi-wheel Petrol Lawnmower with Variable Speed can be purchased for £379.95 including VAT.
While this particular mower is a little more expensive than the Greenworks, its RRP is £649.95 – so the discount is even greater!
This is a premium quality petrol lawn mower from German manufacturer Einhell, which boasts a variable-speed drive system that makes it easy to trim the grass at your own walking pace.

Climbing plants will also need to be well looked after throughout July – and it is important to bear in mind the risk of disease that can be exacerbated if the plants are not regularly pruned.
Why not have a look at our extensive range of tree pruners? These products allow for any unwanted growths to be cut back from the comfort and safety of the ground.
Another gardening activity not to be underestimated in July is weeding. Perennial weeds love to capitalise on any bare patches of soil in the summer – and they need to be stopped, or other plants will not be able to make the most of the nutrients on offer. Ground-covering growths can help to resolve this, but it is possible to be more efficient and protect against this issue with the careful use of cultivators and tillers.
