Eco Garden Maintenance are glad to announce that we have ordered more pellenc tools that should be with us by the end of the week. We will be receiving the C20 chainsaw and Treelion M45 pruning shears to add to the Helion 75cm hedge trimmer, Excelion strimmer and airion blower that we already use.

These battery powered gardening tools are at the cutting edge of technology offering zero emissions at point of use and vastly reduced noise levels at and around the work area. These bennefits along with reduced weight and the fact that the operator does not have to stop to refuel means increased productivity can be acheived. A happy gardener results in a happy garden !

The Eliet prof 4 hydro shredder we have been using for a few months now has been a huge asset to the company and our customers. Gone are the days of dragging huge amounts of waste out of gardens and to the waste transfer station. We encourage customers to utilise the end product of shredding to either compost or add to the borders as mulch. The organic, wildlife friendly garden relies heavily on compost as a rich source of nutrients, soil conditioner, water retention and food for soil micro-organisms. This can only be good for your garden and help your plants be healthy and free from disease. Why buy expensive compost from garden centres ( who knows how far it has travelled to get to you ) when you can make your own and eliminate disposal costs too.

Another string to our eco bow is the use of organic fertilizers for lawns and other plants. Our aim is to feed the soil which in turn feeds the plant naturally. A healthy soil full of life will bring rewards in terms of reduced pests and diseases - synthetic fertilizers do nothing for the soil which can become stale and void of life.

The future is natural and organic i think you will agree.

"I always go from left to right..... Reckon it's to do with being left-handed.   As Dave says, use a D handled strimmer...... I find no harness at all is best.  Everyone's different though"

"When broken down, a large job is only a number of smaller jobs put together and if you feel you want to have a crack, then that is how I would approach this project. Roughly prep the whole area and order the turf in 'bite-sized' deliveries if you ca…"

"Cord not too long. On longer grass, right to left sweeping movement - imagine you are using an old fashioned sythe and maybe 2 or 3 passes.  On shorter grass I keep the head almost flat, with a similar movement........and concentrate!!

"Use a strimmer with a D handle and use a shoulder strap not a harness, you can then set the height of the strimmer constantly so that should stop the scalping."

"Practice. Maybe lengthen the strap a little so the strimmer hangs a touch lower. "

"If he charged £60 a day he could afford his own extension lead after a couple of days, sky’s the limit then."

Sean Clarke replied to Chris Bradley's discussion Strimming techniques Need help!!
"Everyone has their own technique that they hone over the years, personally I like to strim from right to left with the strimmer head angle at about 30* on the 9o’clock/3o’clock plane. Longer, rougher grass I’m not so fussy about, just need to concen…"

"Light on the dash, what are these luxuries you speak of? Even if there was a light it probably wouldn’t work, it’s a Land Rover!"

Sean Clarke replied to Colin Anson's discussion Briggs engine - no oil change.
"I agree, oil changes on a mower can be completed in 5mins and cost less than a pint down your local. Bit of a tongue-in-cheek comment comparing it to the Landy! Although small top-ups are fine as part of day-to-day upkeep of our machines. I’ve never…"
