Five 'Quiet Mark' Certified Garden Power Tools


Spring is the season of hope and fresh beginnings as we slowly start to see nature burst back to life after the long winter months. Spring is also a great time to do some gardening! According to the National Trust, many gardeners will be busy sowing seeds and preparing flower borders and vegetable patches as the weather gets warmer and the days get longer - with March and April being good months to plant perennials, sow hardy annuals like marigolds and plant summer flowering bulbs like lilies and gladioli.

However, before making your plans, you might need to take a moment to consider what garden tools you'll need. Here is a selection of Quiet Mark certified garden power tools that can help to quietly get your garden ready for spring!

Hedge Trimmers

According to the Royal Horticultural Society, "hedges require formative pruning on planting, plus maintenance trimming to keep them within bounds. Pruning times vary depending on the type of hedge". Coniferous hedges for example, should ideally be pruned in early spring.

The Stihl HSA 26 battery-powered handheld shrub shears are brilliant for use in small and large gardens alike, as they make pruning small-leaved trees and shrubs so easy!

With plenty of power, the HSA 26 delivers a precise, clean finish when maintaining topiary or hedges using the shrub blades. The teeth on the shrub blade are specially shaped to hold the branches in the cut for a neat cut.

The HSA 26 also comes with an interchangeable grass trimming blade, which is quick and easy to switch over, and is perfect for quickly tidying up lawn edges. It all comes in a handy canvas case to conveniently carry and store the shears, both blades, the battery and the charger.

For slightly bigger jobs such as trimming overgrown branches in small to medium-sized gardens, the HSA 45 is STIHL’s lightest cordless hedge trimmer would be good choice. It has an integrated battery with an indicator to show the current charge level. Single-sided cutter blade with 24 mm tooth spacing, integrated cut protection, screw-on tip protector, integrated battery with charge level indicator. Approximate working time up to 40 minutes. Leaf Blowers

Before giving your lawn its first cut of the season or making plans about what to plant, you'll need to create a blank canvas. Leaf blowers are ideal tools for this as they'll keep your garden clear of leaves or debris such as hedge trimmings and fallen branches.

The Stihl BGA 45 is an easy to use cordless blower for clearing small outdoor areas at home. It has a round nozzle with an integrated battery that has a charge level indicator and can clear up to 200 m2 on one charge.

Lawnmowers

One of the biggest tasks of the spring and summer months is maintaining your lawn. According to the National Garden Scheme, "the winter always leaves lawns looking worn and scruffy, especially where they are prone to moss". Once you've given your grass its first cut in the spring when the weather starts to warm up, you'll start to notice some growth. That's also a good time to feed and weed it.

The Stihl RMA 235 is ideal for gardens up to an area of 200 m². It has a folding, height-adjustable handlebar for easy storage, an integrated carrying handle and a deck made of high impact, heat and UV resistant polymer. It also features our innovative grass catcher box – with vents that face downward, grass or dust cannot escape upwards and air flow is maximised to collect as much grass as possible.

Grass Trimmers

Grass trimmers are great for trimming overgrown patches of grass before mowing it, or for adding the finishing touches to your lawn edges.

The Stihl FSA 57 battery-powered grass trimmer is perfect for medium to large gardens. It is lightweight, quiet and easy to manoeuvre around your garden, with an adjustable loop handle that helps you to guide the trimmer exactly where you need it. The shaft is also extendable, so you can adjust it to suit your height. Additional grass cutting line is available.
