    Small product picture of a garden stool review.

    Don’t let the fun of planting your garden be slowed down by having to take repeated trips back to the shed! With the Step 2 Garden Stool, you can enjoy an easy gardening experience without the added work. This garden stool comes fully assembled and is made from rustproof plastic. It features a heavy-duty seat that keeps you low to the ground for planting and seeding, while offering enough comfort to get the work done in one simple step. Best of all, the garden stool offers underseat storage for gardening tools. When you’re done working in the garden, simply carry the stool back to the shed with the molded carrying handle.

    And since it can get warm outside, the stool smartly includes a drink holder for a 12-ounce beverage. This garden stool is an excellent choice for gardeners, as it’s made from strong plastic instead of steel or aluminum that can rust over time. Plus, the stool offers storage compartments and a drink holder, while other stools have none of these features. Moving around is also easy with the Step 2 Garden Stool, as the 7-inch wheels allow for easy movement. Some customers found that the stool was ideal for certain conditions only, such as if you’re gardening on a flat surface and planting low to the ground.

    One of the most frustrating summer activities for any homeowner is the act of watering the lawn. Trying to prevent the intense summer heat from killing the lawn is difficult and can have a devastating effect on the water bill.

    This Cordless String Trimmer Offers Excellent Battery Life

    March 13th, 2020

    Small product picture of a cordless string trimmer review.

    Maintaining a home is perhaps the biggest task involved with owning a home, and the outside of the house often requires the most attention. Almost every garage in America has a lawnmower in it, but not all of them have all the tools for keeping the lawn looking perfect. Sure, you can get away with just mowing your grass, but if you want to have that well groomed look you’ll need an edger/trimmer. The Black and Decker cordless string trimmer is an environmentally friendly alternative to the old gas powered string trimmer, and the 18 volt lithium ion battery can still do the job of keeping that lawn well manicured.

    The Black and Decker cordless trimmer is lightweight and powered by an 18 volt lithium ion battery that is not only lighter than the competition, but holds a charge longer too. The edger and trimmer from Black & Decker offers a 12-inch cutting swath and comes with a quick charger that can recharge the battery in just 1 hour. Other features of this model include an adjustable aluminum shaft, auxiliary handle, and a specialized gear drive transmission that increases the torque of the unit for extra power. Electric trimmers are becoming more and more popular as people move away from gas-guzzling lawn tools. This particular Black and Decker model has one major advantage over its rivals on the marketplace, a Lithium ion battery. Many other models feature NiCad batteries that are heavier and provide shorter usage between charges. While most online reviewers had nothing but positive things to say about the Black and Decker electric string trimmer, others were not as impressed.

    Garden Cultivator With An Electric Motor That Is Easy To Operate

    January 12th, 2020

    Small product picture of a cultivator review.

    Gardening can be one of the most challenging and rewarding past times for any individual to pursue. All that time spent crawling around on your knees in the dirt with the sun beating down on your neck can turn some people off from gardening. Then there is the weeding that has to be done, an annoying task unto itself. Take some of the back breaking labor out of gardening with the purchase of a Sun Joe Electric Garden Tiller/Cultivator. This particular cultivator is powered by a 6.5 amp electric motor that turns four steel blade tines to churn up the Earth. Those tines are capable of cutting a swath of Earth as wide as 14 inches and as deep as 7 inches.

    The design of the rotary cultivator is also meant to ease the burden on gardeners. The wide set handles and light weight of the tiller, just 17 lbs, make it easier to handle. Don’t worry though, those wide set handles are collapsible for easy storage in a garage or shed. There are other tillers and cultivators on the market. Similar electric models with equal power are held in lower regard by users than the Sun Joe model however, thanks in large part to better design. Online reviewers were generally pleased with the Sun Joe Electric Garden Cultivator, but even those who liked it found issues with the unit. Aside from faulty units, the major complaint from many reviewers was that the tiller was underpowered and couldn’t do the job in any hard soil. If you have a small garden or the need to do certain small jobs from time to time in a larger garden, the Sun Joe Electric Garden Tiller/Cultivator would be a good addition to your tool shed. That being said, it is not likely to prove a suitable substitute for a more powerful model.
