There are a few garden power tools that most of us accept as necessary bits of kits for keeping the garden tidy: lawnmowers certainly and maybe hedge trimmers or power washers, but are leaf blowers worth investing in?
While leaf blowers seem to be an essential tool for gardeners over in America (according to US TV shows!), they’re not as commonplace in the UK, however, once you experience how useful they are, you’ll soon wonder how you managed without one!
Here are a few reasons why a leaf blower is the ultimate garden power tool:
By far the biggest advantage of a leaf blower is how quickly you can get the garden looking neat and tidy. Raking or brushing leaves and debris always takes so much longer than you think. A leaf blower takes a job that could normally take a significant amount of time and have it sorted in just a few minutes.
Raking or brushing is back-breaking work. A leaf blower saves your back from all the bending over and your knees from getting down under garden furniture and into nooks and crannies to get to all the leaves that we know get everywhere.
We all know that power tools are fun and what’s not to enjoy about strapping on your leaf blower and taking on those leaves? Be an action hero in the garden!

Not just for gardens with trees
You may think that it’s only worth buying a leaf blower if you have a lot of trees in your garden that drop leaves in the autumn but that’s not the case. You could have no trees or deciduous plants in your own garden but you will still get leaves due to the way the wind and other weather conditions disperse leaves across large areas. It’s not just an issue in autumn either as different plants have different life cycles, for example, cherry blossom trees tend to shed in the spring (and these can be particularly difficult to sweep up as they’re so small and light).
Not even just for leaves!
Did you know that you can even use leaf blowers to clear away light snowfall? Again, much easier than using a brush and you can clear a path or drive in minutes. You can even use one to dry off your car after washing it, clear sawdust or wood shavings in a workshop, or blow away cobwebs and dirt from window sills, guttering or soffits. It’s so multi-functional!
