"Go battery, it is worth the extra outlay at the beginning.
Corded tools = extenstion leads, plugs, cutting through cables, trip hazzards and also you won't be wanting to cut during rain.

Corded tools

Hi there, first post on here for me.  Been lurking for a while always seeming to end up here when googling so had to sign up! I've recently set up my new gardening business maintaining small domestic gardens. I already have a mix of Stihl petrol tools on Aspen. I am however needing a few more tools and wanted to push being green and eco which works with my ethos. On searching through the Stihl and Husky catalogues I see they do a few several corded "pro" models corded of hedgetrimmer (Hse81)…

Kubota or Iseki?

We're looking a for a new cut-and-collect ride-on mower which can cope with lawns of a few thousand m2 and in particular, will cope in the wet.  I thought I'd settled on a Kubota G23-II with high-dump: but I've heard good reviews of the Iseki SXG323. Does anyone have experience of either machine?

Safe chemical application and aftercare

Good morning,Hopefully someone may be able to help me.I don't know if anyone else has experienced this but we have found it to be more of a issue during lockdown. I look after properties where I apply a selective to the lawns, fertilse them infrequently and herbicide treat hard surfaces for weed control. All of that is fairly standard but where I am getting some feedback is when the signage is removed to declare the grass "safe". It isn't uncomon for chemicals to be blamed for everything under…

Compost teas and DIY liquid bio fertilizers in lawn care

Does anyone make their own compost teas and liquid bio fertilzers for the use in lawn care and / or plant care ? Seems to be a growing area with a lot more suppliers offering a wide range of products you 'brew up' and then apply to help soil heath either bacterially or fungally not to mention natural NPKs and minerals.I know the concepts have been around for ages but does anyone have experience of either using supplier certified compost teas etc or just making their own ? Any sites or books on…
