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…

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…

The All New EGO Power+ 56V Lawn Mowers

Ego cordless lawn mowers – Power beyond belief Ego lawn mowers offer unrivalled power in the form of a 56v battery – the industry’s first ever 56v battery that will power your lawn mower and all the other garden machinery in the range, charging up in just 30 minutes. The batteries range from 2Ah to 7.5Ah. The higher the Ah the more powerful they are. Here at Just Lawnmowers we like the fact that these Ego lawn mowers look futuristic, but are perfectly at ease in the hands of the traditional gardener. Cordless power gives you everything that petrol offers you, and plenty of things it can’t. You can enjoy a quieter, easier to manage machine that offers a completely smoke and fume free working environment. Finally you can take in the lovely smells of your garden as you work, instead of exhaust fumes. One of the best things, in our opinion to come from Ego is their advanced and forward thinking design of the battery casing. A clever arc design allows the battery to lose heat, unlike the traditional brick shaped battery that retains heat and therefore has a shorter working life. Another clever design feature is that the battery lasts longer than it takes…

Grass and Lawn Care In April

If the month of April lives up to her reputation, then the recent showers across the country will be here to stay. Great news for your grass, but perhaps a bit more work for you! This is a great time to put some seed down if your lawn is looking a bit weathered. Over seeding can help recover those bald patches, especially under trees or in front of those football goals! If you are worried about a difference in colour when the new growth comes through it might be worth considering seeding the whole lawn to get that perfect match. However in most cases the colour difference is not noticeable. As you have probably noticed your lawn doesn’t do a lot of growing over the colder months, but a bit of sunshine and some April showers can soon change that in the blink of an eye. Regular maintenance can make all the difference to the health of your lawn and just below we have made a concise list of those little jobs that can help you achieve lawn perfection! 1. Mowing – You might think this is obvious of course, and how often you mow depends on the time of year,…
