Autumn and winter should provide a well deserved break from the garden for all, but to make sure you have a successful spring next year, there are a few jobs which need to be done before the cold sets in. To ensure your garden is ready for the changes in weather, Bosch Lawn & Garden has put together its top tips - trim back branches, collect leaves, shred it all and feed everything back into your garden!
Before the winds pick up it’s a good idea to cut back any loose branches and give trees or large shrubs a good old trim. For branches up to 60 mm, the Keo is perfect, with its unique ‘A grip’ which secures branches for one handed use – you’ll be done in no time.
Bigger jobs may of course require a bigger tool. For thicker branches use a chainsaw, like Bosch’s AKE 35 S, which is ideal for this autumn task. Weighing only 4kg, and with a 35 cm bar length it’s easy to handle. With tool-less chain assembly and tensioning its simple to set up and provides all the power you need to remove branches and shape trees.
Out of control hedges may vary in size and shape, but the compact AHS 45-15 LI is up to the job of trimming them back. With a lightweight 10.8 V lithium-ion battery, the total weight of the hedgecutter is only 2 kg, making it comfortable to use and easily manoeuvrable.
Breeze through the tidy-up
During the winter months, gardens benefit from a layer of leaf litter and foliage to protect them from harsh ground frosts and snow. Why not use the ALS 2500 garden vacuum to collect the leaves from the patio and shred them – taking full advantage of the machine’s 1:10 shredding radio?
Alternatively, tidy up stray leaves and twigs from your lawn, patio or driveway using the powerful ALB 36 LI leaf blower. This new model ensures high performance with a variable speed control button enabling you to shift sticky, wet leaves or sweep driveways without spreading the gravel far and wide.
Enjoy the Mess!
Pass your branches and other off-cuttings through a shredder to make the perfect bio-degradable, organic, low acid mulch. With a 2500 Watt motor, Bosch’s AXT 25 TC uses a turbine-system to cut and crush the softest greenery right through to hard wood up to 45 mm in diameter. Automatic feeding and touch pad controls make it easy to use, and allow you to reverse the wood to quickly unblock the machine.
