No ordinary shovel, the Multi-Shifter has a patented ‘gliding’ head that will shift almost anything off your drive or path. It’s brilliant for clearing up autumn leaves, twigs and general debris, and as well as snow and mud it can push aside rainwater thanks to its unique profile. Simply slide, push, shove or pull, you’ll be amazed how efficient it is. The blade’s rigid construction means you can even break ice or remove moss and weeds from patios and paths. Great for stables too.
Bergman’s electric hedge trimmer has a reach of over 3 metres, so you won’t need to risk your neck on a ladder. It’s also much cheaper than hiring a professional gardener, especially at under £100. Uniquely designed by Bergman Tools, the telescopic lightweight pole extends to cut the tallest hedge from ground level, and is angle-adjustable so it cuts both the sides and top of hedges. Built to the highest European safety standards with pro-quality, laser-cut precision trimmer blades, you can use it straight out of the box.
Bergman’s electric weeding machine kills weeds on your patio, paths and driveway without resorting to hazardous chemicals or a gas-powered flame-thrower. It uses intense heat to burn the weeds, but produces no physical flame – and of course needs no fiddly gas cylinder refills either. The machine heats up at the touch of a button, and you simply hold it over the offending weed until it shrivels up, cauterised right down to its roots. A cone-shaped guard ensures accuracy and protects any nearby plants. We tested it on some long-established weeds including dandelions, and they’ve never made another appearance.
The most cost-effective, hassle-free outdoor lighting solution we've found. This motion-activated light runs on batteries, so it needs no installation – just hang or stick it up wherever you need it. And because it uses LEDs rather than bulbs, it will operate for years before the batteries need replacing. The lamp has 15 super-bright LEDs so it's powerful, too – use one to mark a gateway or light up a door, or several to light your way along a driveway or path.
We've already found an amazing number of uses for this tough, coated tarpaulin, which carries an impressive manufacturer's 5-year guarantee. It's tough and waterproof, making it ideal for protecting wood, sand, cement, tools, bikes and cars from the elements. It also makes an excellent ground sheet or windbreak outdoors, and can be used indoors for keeping dirt and paint off carpets and furniture. The tarpaulin features a strong metal eyelet every metre along its border, so it can be tied in place using your own string or cord.
Every gardener should wear one of these safety straps when using mains-powered tools. Simple and affordable, it holds the power cord over your shoulder so it can’t trail on the ground and get tangled or damaged, and won’t trip you up as you cut, trim or mow.
Garden tool design hasn’t changed much in decades, but the simple addition of a comfort-grip loop handle makes these garden tools so much easier to use. Not only do they protect your hands while you work, they also give you extra leverage when digging or turning over the soil. Durably made to withstand heavy-duty cultivation, they will be particularly welcomed by anyone with weak hands or arthritis.
Keep your gutter clear of moss and leaves with our Gutter Brush set. Simply place the flexible polypropylene brush along your gutter channels. It’s flexible to fit around bends and corners, can be cut to length, needs no maintenance and can easily be removed if needed. Best of all, twigs and leaves don’t rest on top but simply blow away – far better than gutter mesh which still needs to be cleared each year.
