Technology brings new light-weight power to cordless garden tools.
The sun brightly shines, revealing Spring over-growth. Rainy days alternating with sunshine cause unbelievable plant growth in the Northwest. One day your yard looks clean and tidy, the next it needs a cut and trim.
A sunny Saturday brings an opportunity for much-needed grooming. Time to bring out the big guns - string trimmer, hedge trimmer, blower, and mower. Your English yew makes a nice street border but they are definitely in need of a trim. You plug in your extension cord and hedge trimmer, carefully laying the cord down around your prized garden plants. A variety of grasses, shrubs, and ground cover are at constant risk of cord bruising and even outright plant decapitation. Snags and disconnects are a given. What should be a fast, enjoyable 30 minutes of creating perfection turns into an hour of damage control, tugs, and re-plugs.
Power tools offer huge benefits for the weekend gardener. They cut maintenance time to a small percentage of what it would take with only hand power. Unfortunately, the benefits are often reduced by power line frustrations, damage control, or the shrill buzz and fumes of gas power, destroying the whole “joy of gardening” experience. If only you could cut the cord and cover yourself with a cone of silence and smell, eliminating the annoying buzz and fumes of your gas tool.
You can! Technology does it again. Battery-powered garden tools are the new rage. Lighter, more powerful, and longer-lasting, the new cordless lawn equipment gives you the freedom, power, and quiet to enjoy your gardening like never before.
