Summer is on its way, and as we prepare to enjoy spending more time relaxing and entertaining outside, it’s a great time to tidy up your garden so you can make the most of your outdoors during the warmer, brighter months.
Although the more intensive gardening tasks are usually done later in the year, it’s important to maintain certain areas all year round so your garden stays tidy, vibrant and healthy. Here at Cobra, we know that looking after your garden can take a lot of time and effort. But, with our wide range of tools, your garden maintenance becomes a quick, simple and effortless task.
Look after your lawn all year round
It’s important to look after your lawn all year round and it’s especially helpful to make sure that during the warmer weather your grass is well maintained so it doesn’t dry out and cause more serious damage. Regularly watering your lawn during hot weather can help the grass root develop deeper into the soil, creating a more vigorous lawn that can respond better to drought during heavy rainfall. If your lawn has been exposed to especially hot weather, heavy watering is recommended so your lawn is kept well-hydrated whilst there is enough water to generously penetrate the root. However, it is best to do this only occasionally to avoid an excess of water.
If you’re spending more time outside and making use of your lawn, light aeration may be needed to relieve soil compaction and improve the circulation of air, water and nutrients. This will help to keep your grass thriving, creating a robust and vigorous lawn.
Keep your edges neat and tidy
To achieve a picture-perfect lawn, it’s important to make sure your grass edges are well looked after too. After being left for some time, overgrown grass edges can make lawns look unsightly and ragged, so regularly trimming them can help to create a lawn to be proud of.
Our wide range of electric, petrol and cordless grass trimmers help to make garden maintenance quick and effortless, so you can enjoy more time relaxing in the garden. The GT600E electric grass trimmer is a powerful, high performance grass trimmer, offering a 600W efficient motor along with a 30cm cutting width, allowing you to make fewer passes, speeding up cutting time. Its 90 degree tilting cutter head allows you to get to hard-to-reach places and is equipped with a plant protection bar so you can trim around delicate plants and shrubs without damaging them.
The GT3024V cordless grass trimmer is part of our cordless collection and also offers a powerful grass trimmer, allowing you to create a perfectly tidy lawn. Powered by a 24V Lithium-ion battery, the GT3024V offers the same high-quality performance as our electric and petrol products but offers ease of operation and quieter running. Plus, Cobra’s cordless battery technology can be used across a range of other products, providing greater convenience and allowing garden care to become a task that is quick and easy. With the addition of a 45-degree rotating head, the GT3024V also provides you with more flexibility when trimming boarder and verges – making garden maintenance simple and stress-free.
Neaten up your hedges
Just like lawn edges, unruly hedges, bushes or any type of shrubbery can look unkempt and messy when left to grow without regular trimming and maintenance. Hedges can lose their shape and become overgrown easily, so regularly trimming your hedges can help you maintain some structure to your garden. Here at Cobra, our wide range of electric, petrol and cordless hedge trimmers allows you to create enviable hedges without all the hard work.
The HT62C handheld petrol hedge trimmer offers a 62cm double-sided blade which makes it suitable for all types of hedges. It’s double-sided feature also provides the ultimate product for shaping hedges as you can alter the direction of the cut easily. It’s Twist Grip Handle also helps you to tackle the most awkward jobs and as it’s fitted with Cobra’s own 22cc 2-stroke engine, it offers a powerful performance so you can create neat and tidy hedges without the back ache.
The LRH5024V cordless long reach hedge trimmer is also a great tool for tackling the most awkward jobs and with its long reach ability, it can make light work of long, tall hedges. Plus, with a 19’’ cutting head and a tooth spacing of 15mm, you can easily transform over-grown, dishevelled hedges into a beautiful architectural vision.
Make sure to be mindful of cutting your hedges, though, as the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 states that it is an offense to cut certain mature hedgerows between March and August as birds are likely to be nesting there!
It’s important to invest in your garden all year round so you not only have a luscious space to enjoy during the summer months but it will make it easier to keep on top of your autumn maintenance too! Here at Cobra, we are passionate about making your garden maintenance as easy and stress free as possible, so your gardening journey is one you can enjoy.
