Hints & Tips
Clearing leaves again. Yes really.
There was the drive looking pristine in the late afternoon sunshine, well pristine-ish, and the following day it had been peppered overnight with another batch of leaves.
You could also see the old sycamores grinning.
If you live in a built-up area, buzzing leaf-blowers can annoy the neighbours so if you want to do the job quietly, try one of these.
It’s the Agri-Fab 26″ Push Lawn & Leaf Sweeper (45-0218), a great little device which collects leaves from lawns and drives, patios and paths in silence.
As you push it along the revolving wheels turn sweeping brushes which move the leaves and twigs to the 200 litre collector at the back. When it’s full just unclip it and empty on to the compost heap.
And with a width of 66cm you can clear large areas quickly and equally importantly, in silence.
On special offer at £139, it is delivered free the next working day and has a five-year warranty.
And no more complaining neighbours.
Here’s what some of our customers had to say about this neat and calm machine… “It is well made… does an excellent job.” “…so impressed I donated one to the hospice, where I am a volunteer gardener.” “…makes light work of clearing leaves and debris from lawn, easy to push and empty. I’d highly recommend it to anyone.”
And if the sound of garden machinery annoys you, and maybe others living nearby, keep an eye on our site for new electrically-powered garden machinery which is virtually silent.
There’s some great new equipment coming for next year.
