It’s National Gardening Week until 3rd May and let’s face it, there’s been no better time when we’re all cooped up at home, to maximise our outdoor space.
From the nation’s gardens to yards and terraces to balconies, there is always something you can do to make your outdoor space as attractive as possible. With garden centres looking set to reopen in the near future, there’ll also be the little blooming extras in the form of flowering plants that could really give your garden that extra special colourful boost.
But, before you head out to add plants to your borders, now is the time to get any lawn properly ship-shape and ready for those extra flowers and other plants. Step in Gtech’s new cordless lawnmower that we’ve had the absolute pleasure of reviewing.
The Cordless Lawnmower 2.0 is a great little operator that’s dependable, light and does a precision job of cutting your lawn. This lawmower has a charge time of just 1 hour and a 48V Lithium-ion battery to power through your garden for up to 40 minutes, making light work of cutting the lawn.
It’s sleek, efficient and pretty quiet for a lawn mower too. For a more precise cut there’s a choice of 10mm increments between 30mm and 80mm which means you can get the perfect lawn for a quick tidy up or a more thorough mow.
We loved the fact that it's cordless as it enables a quicker mow without the nagging threat of going over wires or getting tangled. Then there's also the extra chore of needing cord extensions and wrapping up all the cord after you've finished - things we can happily dispense with using this very reliable cordless mower.
