Lots of us find enjoyment relaxing in our own green spaces or getting our hands dirty transforming our gardens, and these activities are great for positively impacting health. The benefits of connecting to nature, and nurturing lawns, plants and vegetables are diverse, impacting both physical and psychological health.
The University of Exeter and the Royal Horticultural Society backs up the theory that gardening and caring for lawns, plants and vegetables provides added value to people’s lives. The study found that the 61% of people who don’t make use of their garden experience poor health, whilst 71% of those who are regularly out in their garden report good overall health and concluded that people who use their gardens and outdoor areas experience a range of benefits, including lower blood pressure, reduced stress and an increased confidence and self-esteem.
At Cobra we also know how important it is to get out gardening and have a wide range of tools to make it effortless and convenient, so it becomes something to enjoy rather than dread! With an impressive range of electric, battery, petrol, and cordless products that offer reliability and power, each has unique features that ensure there is the perfect tool for everyone.
What’s the best mower for smaller spaces?
The award-winning MX3440V cordless lawnmower is one of the best if you’ve got a smaller lawn. Its adjustable lever gives you the option of five cutting heights, so it can tackle even the unruliest grass, and the foldable handles mean that it can be stored away in restricted spaces – making it the perfect choice if you have a small shed. The MX3440V is also powered by a Samsung 40V Lithium-ion battery, resulting in power with a lightweight feel and quiet running. For added convenience, the batteries from this range can also be used to power the strimmer and leaf blower, allowing garden maintenance to become quick and easy, leaving you with more time to enjoy the great outdoors.
How to tackle areas the mower can’t reach?
Our range of brushcutters make the maintenance of hard to reach, long, uneven grass effortless. The BC260C offers consistent, strong power – with its 2-stroke engine – whilst achieving reduced fuel consumption and industry leading low emission levels. It also comes complete with a tap ‘n’ go double line cutting head, allowing for ease when mowing and thinning, whilst the robust guard increases operator safety. In addition to its straight shaft and loop handle, which creates increased operator feel and manoeuvrability, the BC260C has also been designed with ergonomically positioned controls that not only makes using it more comfortable, but also as safe as possible.
How to achieve a perfect lawn with ease
For the ultimate in lawncare, our range of scarifiers help to revitalise grass by removing any damaging thatch, providing better drainage, and allowing air, moisture, and nutrients to reach the root so your grass stays healthy.
Scarifying can be done by hand with a rake, but this is backbreaking, labour intensive work. The S390H offers the complete scarifying experience, with its 16 fixed blades – meaning it can collect thatch in 15” passes – taking the hard work out of lawncare. For increased flexibility, the SA40E combines a scarifier and aerator in one compact machine with a 15” scarifying drum and a 14-blade aerator. This means you can de-thatch, improve drainage and ease your soil compaction using one machine, producing healthy and vibrant grass with ease.
Getting out into nature and creating a lawn that is loved and cared for is important for people’s health, whether mental or physical, and at Cobra, we are passionate about providing the tools to make it as easy and stress-free as possible.
