Easy Gardening Tools

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018 by morethan

Now that the weather has finally improved; many of you will be out this spring doing the gardening so we have put together this guide and some of our best-selling gardening mobility products to ensure an enjoyable experience.

  • Plant maintenance – Pruning the roses will be something you want to keep doing for as long as possible. Deadheading is easy, beneficial to the plant and very satisfying.
  • Tools – When getting stuck in starts to be too strenuous; there’s a whole range of mobility tools available to make the job easier. Take a look at our website for gardening that products for the disabled and elderly
  • Lawns – The effort that goes into a lawn depends completely upon the desires of the owner. Mowing and maintaining lawns is hard work except for the smallest piece of green and it’s well worth finding a trustworthy gardener to take on the job.
  • Garden services – Try Checkatrade or similar organisations, or possibly the local Repair with Care or similar agency will have a list of approved gardeners. Ads in the local shops can be fruitful but obviously wherever you find a gardener they’ll need references, be able to demonstrate their skill, and turn up reliably.
  • Paths – Look at the surface of paths to check they don’t get slippery at any time of the year. Wood is wicked so keep an eye on decking. Algae and moss are dangers too. Even in the summer uneven surfaces are just waiting to be tripped over. And while you’re flattening the paths, take a look at the lawn as well to remove hidden potholes.
  • Watering – Carrying watering cans or rolling out the hosepipe can become too hard a job. Perhaps you can set up water butts at strategic places to catch water from shed, garage and greenhouse roofs? Or if all else fails fill them yourself with the hose to last a while.

At More Than Mobility we have a range of gardening mobility products to help if you are a keen gardener.
