3 Great Garden Tractors for Summer 2018

Thinking of thinking outside the box? We did! And we found 3 great garden tractors from not-so-well-known brands… Hello and welcome back to our blog after a bit of a break! As always we are super busy here at Just Lawnmowers, but today I put “write blog” on the top of my (never ending) list! If you’ve experienced a pretty miserable and wet start to the year (join the club!) you might be feeling as cheerful as we are, now that we’ve had a bit of sunshine and dry weather, with a good forecast to encourage us to get on with some planning in the garden. I think it might be a bumper year for fruit and vegetables this year, judging by the wonderful blossom that has started to come out in my garden. Everything looks super healthy and this is most likely to be because of all the rain. (See it’s not just ducks that like a bit of rain, us gardeners do too!). Garden machinery is flying off the shelves here at Just Lawnmowers, and this year our garden tractors are more popular than ever before. This could be due to people doing their own gardens instead of…

3 Recommended Petrol Blowers & Vacuums for Autumn 2017
Blowers & Collectors , Products / 12th September 2017

Well here we are – almost Autumn – and if you’re anything like us here at Just Lawnmowers then you are already lamenting the shorter days, the slight chill in the air and the damp mornings. The majority of gardeners love and loathe each season for various reasons. Personally I love a good autumn bonfire, it quite literally feels like I am making a fresh start in the garden and all that debris that was building up is gone in a puff of smoke, all it takes is an afternoon and a bit of patience. At my son’s insistence we check for hedgehogs, small rodents etc before we light the first (bit sometimes not the last!) match. Even if you’re not lighting a bonfire yourself somewhere in the neighbourhood you may catch the smell of someone else’s and suddenly your memory conjures up fireworks, conkers, hot dogs and cold misty days. I love days like this. Some gardeners hate the mess the Autumn brings, the leaves all over the lawn, the debris and the general messiness of the garden as plants fade and die. But we are of course on hand to help and here at Just Lawnmowers we stock…

5 Side-Discharge / Mulching Garden Tractors for Summer 2017

Well it looks like Summer is in full swing so if you can drag yourselves away from your Pimms on the lawn or that obligatory game of croquet with the in-laws then we want to tell you why your lawn could benefit from buying a side discharge garden tractor. Some ride-on mowers collect the grass clippings, while others mulch them back into the lawn. Lawn tractors with side discharge decks are ideal for longer grass in wilder areas such as overgrown gardens, orchards or meadows. The deck discharges to one side of the ride-on (see image right) and handles damp or wet grass very well. When you hear mulching you might think of unsightly lumps of grass cuttings left on your lawn to rot down, but that is not the case at all. These mulching garden tractors cut up the grass clippings so finely and neatly you will hardly notice them at all. And you will be improving your soil as it decomposes, and returns vital nutrients back into your lawn. You can also work quicker as you don’t have to stop to empty the grass collector. Over the course of the cutting season you will see a marked improvement…

5 Top Quality Low Priced Rear Collecting Garden Tractors For 2017

If you are in the market for a new lawn tractor and have decided that you will collect the grass clippings, then a rear collecting garden tractor is the way to go. These tractors will collect up the grass clippings into a collection bag as you mow, which you then empty, either by a lever, button or by physically taking the bag off and emptying it. In some cases you will want to mulch the clippings as this provides vital nutrients back to your grass. Built with collection as standard, our rear collect lawn tractor line-up consists of machines from top-brand manufacturers such as Honda, Mountfield, Efco, Stiga, Lawnflite and more – all featuring smart design and ergonomics and with a choice of cutting widths, engines and transmission types. If you’ve read our previous blog you should have all the knowledge you need to make the best decision when it comes to purchasing your brand new garden tractor. It’s always a good idea to compare different products and make sure you are buying something that will do what you need it to. Remember we are always on hand to offer advice before you buy. To make things a little easier…

What do I need to know before I buy a garden tractor?

Garden tractors are now more popular than ever, and that could be because they are now more affordable than ever before or it could be because the latest designs means they are suitable for more compact gardens. Once you’ve used a garden tractor you will never want to return to your trusty lawnmower. Easier to operate and more efficient in every way – they really do put the fun back into gardening! However, like with all garden machinery it needs to do its job and be the best option for you. So what do you need to consider before buying a garden tractor? Read our handy guide for help, tips and advice. Don’t get too big for your boots! Or rather, select a garden tractor that suits the size of your garden. If you have a large open plan garden then go for something with a wide cutting width, but if you have a garden with tight spaces or obstacles to mow round, consider something with a smaller cutting width. Remember if you have small spaces/gates to navigate around or through – it is best to measure them before you select your garden tractor just to be on the safe…

Top ten budget lawn mowers for Summer 2017
Buyers Guides , Lawn Mowers / 26th June 2017

Well the hot weather has not lasted in our part of the country, but today the sun is out and the birds are singing so we can’t or rather shouldn’t complain much. Here in Norfolk we are gearing up for the show of the year, that is, The Royal Norfolk Show, where everything that is good about this pocket of the countryside comes together in a very splendid, typically British way. We can enjoy what is essentially a trade show with some frilly bits on the side, like Norfolk Gin, (will there be free tasting I wonder?) independent bakers and caterers. Not forgetting of course all things agricultural. If you are regulars to our blog you will know that this year we have been too busy to even think about taking part in or indeed visiting the Royal Norfolk Show and will have to amuse ourselves by reading about the fun and frivolities in our local rag the “EDP”. Being busy is good of course and this particular blog serves to remind us that good business isn’t always about those big flashy products, because here at Just Lawnmowers of course we also sell a fantastic range of budget lawnmowers. And…

Top 10 Petrol Rear Roller Lawn Mowers for 2017

If you’re in a part of the country right now that is witnessing this fantastic heatwave – lucky you! Here on the North Norfolk Coast we are enjoying our hottest June in about 40 years. (However there may be a storm brewing!) The sea beckons us on a daily basis and it’s a hard choice between cooling off in the North sea which amazingly is a rather tempting sparkling green colour right now, or going home and firing up the BBQ! But first, of course there is work to be done. Not just here in our actual jobs but also at home where the grass is growing at an alarming rate and with the threat of some rain tomorrow we know by next weekend it will be long overdue a really good cut! Working for a garden machinery company means it is of course obligatory to take a keen interest in gardening, and if you didn’t already before you started, you certainly will a few weeks into the job! That is true of myself and with a lot of guidance over the years from my colleagues and fellow garden enthusiasts I have started to take my garden a lot more…

2 Cobra Petrol Multi-Tools

The end of January gives us slightly longer days, more growth in our garden and some exceedingly frosty mornings! Depending on whereabouts in the country you are, you may well have experienced some of those lovely crisp winter days, where there is a nip in the air but the sky is bright blue – reminiscent of those captivating summer days that every British gardener yearns for. If you’re anything like me, on those bright winter days I am just itching to do something in the garden. So please don’t spend all of January and February dreaming of spring or summer – get wrapped up and get out there in your garden. As any diligent gardener knows there is a lot of work to be done to get your garden ready for spring. I like to get out in the garden on those fresh sunny days, check all my ties and protections are still ok after any bad weather, and also top up any bird food and water. Coconuts are cheap at this time of time of year, and are an ideal food for many species of birds. Remember to wash it out of any residual milk – this will ensure…
