Top Garden Gadgets
With Spring fast approaching it’s time to dig out your wellies and get back outdoors.
Before you know it you’ll be tending seedlings, mowing the lawn and wrestling with barbecues.
But it doesn’t have to be all hard work. Modern technology has made tending your garden that much easier. In fact, you might even enjoy yourself with a whole host of fun new garden toys.
Here are five top gadgets got you garden:
Hozelock Auto AquaPod watering system - £50
Let’s face it, no one enjoys the tedious to-ing and fro-ing with heavy, sloppy watering cans. But now we don’t have to.
Hozelock has come up with the AquaPod. This automated watering system can help you feed and water between 10 and 40 potted plants.
The kit comes with two green pumps, flexible hoses and drippers and an AC1 water computer you can program so the AquaPod will automatically water plants for you.
It takes just five minutes to set up and uses 90% less water than a watering can.
Bosch ALR 900 Lawn Raker - £100
This mower will keep your lawn in tip top condition by raking, scarifying and aerating it to help you keep leaves, moss and other lawn problems at bay.
It comes with a 900W electric motor and jet fan to scoop up 60% more debris than other machines. It even comes with a folding grass box that can hold up to 50 litres of the green stuff.
Redfyre 33 Gas Barbecue - £679
There is something so primitive about fire and roasting meat and now you can do it in style.
The Redfyre 33 barbecue comes with four stainless steel burners instead of old-fashioned charcoal. It even packs in its very own ceramic rotisserie burner and spit for if you fancy roasting suckling pigs.
This barbecue can also be used as a smoker to rid you food of fat and gristle, whilst still keeping that wood fire flavour.
Count yourselves lucky too. It used to sell for £1179 but at this price it’s a bargain.
Toro 3-in-1 Recycler Mower - £160
When you flick the switch to Recycling, the Toro finely chops up grass cuttings before returning them deep into the grass. Out of sight out of mind, plus it will feed your lawn too.
The Toro gives you the choice to either spin cuttings into a regular 40 litre grass bag, or to chew them up and spit them out as mulch.
The Toro 3-in-1 Recycler Mower is equipped with a powerful 1400W motor, 41cm cutting blades and easy height adjustment. If you want that classy striped pattern to your lawn, the Toro also comes with a clip on roller to create that effect.
