Spring spruce up

Create the garden you’ve always wanted this spring, whether that means reinventing your landscaping, mastering your planting prep or simply adding a statement pot that makes your gardener’s heart sing.

Season of reinvention

Spring is a fantastic time for a refresh. Is there a bare corner that needs colour, gaps in the shrubbery or room for another vegie bed? Pull on a good pair of gardening gloves to get started – Cyclone’s garden gloves with touch screen index finger and thumb means you can scroll your favourite inspiration websites, as you pace out and start planting your new garden beds.

Dig in

Digging and cultivating garden beds is a big job, but you can make it a lot easier by investing in good tools. Cyclone’s post hole shovel won’t shy away from root-strewn earth; reinforced ribs give the blade added strength, so you can dig holes, shovel compost or whatever heavy work the day demands. Next up is cultivating the soil to give your new plants the best chance of flourishing; loosen the soil, and spread compost and mulch with the Cyclone combination rake and hoe. This handy tool has a long handle and narrow profile, which lets you get into hard-to-reach places and easily rake around existing shrubs.

Tidy up

You can almost see the plants grow at this time of year, but it’s not just flowers that are going into overdrive. Weeds are also growing fast, so a good weeding tool needs to be always at hand. The Cyclone hand weeder is perfect for the job, with a sleek design that slides into the soil and lifts out unsightly weeds without damaging the surrounding plants or lawn.

The other must-have inclusion on your tool belt is a pruner. Spring arrives and almost overnight your perfectly tamed climbers or topiary trees start going wild! Cyclone’s heavy duty bypass pruner is tough enough to keep those sprouting strays under control.

Potted heroes

While you’re waiting for your seeds to sprout and new shrubs to settle in, bring spring colour home with some vibrant potted plants. There’s no faster way to give your garden a shot of vivid colour or intoxicating fragrance, and potting up a pretty planter or two means you can position them wherever you most need a cheering statement. Look for a pot that suits your style: a rustic ‘Kentucky’ whiskey barrel for a country garden, perhaps, or an elegant ribbed ‘Arc’ planter for a sophisticated contemporary home. Or opt for a lightweight ‘Villa' trough, which is big enough to plant up with loads of colour, but light enough to move around as the mood strikes.
