The top 5 products you need to get your garden looking better this year
Our outdoor spaces have come to mean so much more to us over the last year as opportunities to leave our homes have been extremely restricted. We can think of our gardens as anther room of the house and, as such, an area that deserves the same attention as the rooms inside the home.
If you want to create a more pleasant and usable space outdoors in 2021, here are 5 essential products that could help you do just that:
1. Hard Surface Cleaner
Hard surfaces make up quite a large proportion of our gardens and include patio areas, paths, decking and drives. Because they occupy so much of the space, it can really bring down the whole look of the garden if they are dirty and stained. One of the most common blights on stone and concrete is black spots, also known as black lichen. This combination of bacteria feeds on the minerals in the stone. Because it sends tendrils deep into the fabric of the stone and also forms a hard crust, it can be very difficult to remove and impossible to just brush or scrub away.
A specific black spot remover, however, will make short work of these pesky marks as it has an active ingredient designed to break the lichen down and remove it. The best part is you just apply and then leave to work so no scrubbing required. As well as removing the black spots, it will give the whole surface a thorough clean.
If mould and green algae are more the issue, including on decking, then a patio cleaner can be used to good effect.

2. Iron Sulphate
Nothing creates a blank canvas better able to set your garden up for success than a beautiful lawn. Grass that is healthy is also stronger, greener, and more resistant to pests. You can improve the health of your lawn and make more green, lush, and vibrant by giving it the nutrients to thrive. Iron sulphate can be applied at any time of the year and is used by professional grounds-people at golf clubs and sports pitches to create amazing turfs.

3. Garden Sprayer
A garden sprayer is a really inexpensive piece of kit that has a wide range of applications that make a number of jobs much easier. They can be used for garden watering, weed killing, and hard surface cleaning, to name just a few and allow you to spray large areas very easily and quickly without tethering you to a water source.
4. Leaf Blower
Loose leaves and other garden debris can look really untidy. They can also form a slip hazard when they get wet. Sweeping them up is an option but it can be back breaking work, and can seem never-ending, especially in autumn. A leaf blower reduces a job that can take hours to just minutes, quickly moving items from a wide area to a single pile. They can also be used for wood chip, rubble, snow, and other garden debris. This makes a tidy garden achievable with a minimum of effort.

5. Hedge Trimmer
A hedge can perfectly frame your garden. Often more picturesque and better for wildlife than a fence, it’s also less likely to blow down in strong winds. However, being a living plant, a hedge can easily become overgrown and start to look messy in the summer months when growth is at its peak. It can even obstruct paths and access. A hedge trimmer makes maintaining neat and tidy hedges and bushes quick and easy, especially a cordless one that allows you to work on foliage in the furthest reaches from your house. Whether you just want to keep them in check or fancy a bit of topiary, this piece of gardening equipment is a great asset to any garden owner.
