Or are you simply filling your garden shed with more clutter than a back-street jumble sale? We take a look at a few of the items you really need in your shed this season, and we offer our top two for quality and price!
Spades and rakes, rakes and spades
Ah yes – the humble spade and rake combo. No kiwi garden can survive without them, and they’re prolific in any warehouse or garden store worth it’s salt. But which ones to choose? Here are our top two tried and true quality spades and rakes that won’t let you down.
- XCEL 14 Tooth Rake
This is a great basic rake that just gets the job done and will go the distance without a fuss. There are no bells and whistles, but you won’t be rushing off to buy a new rake in a year’s time either. This is a well-known and trusted brand, and we’ve never had a customer return one yet!
- XCEL Forged Steel Garden Spade
The forged steel makes this spade strong, reliable and attractive, while the comfortable D-handle offers a soft yet heavy-duty grip. We love the fact that this spade is perfect for most garden uses, yet carries a price tag that makes it affordable for all. A great buy!
Hose it down
What’s a garden without water? We all need a good hose in our lives, and to be honest with a hose you usually get what you pay for! Here’s our choice for the top 2 hoses in store: they’re a great deal, and they’re built to last!
This hose will keep your garden watered for many years to come. It’s excellent UV resistance will shelter it from the harshest rays, and the PVC/Polyester yarn blend gives it a high tensile strength you need to see to believe.
The King Kong of garden hoses, this baby is self-retracting, with a handy lock & rewind mechanism that makes watering less of a strain on the arms! It’s mounted in a weather-resistant fully UV stabilised case, which comes with an optional 180 degree swivel mount. If you love your garden, this is the hose for you!
Wheelbarrows, the gardener’s delight
Take the strain off your back and the weeds away from your garden with the good old kiwi wheelbarrow! You’ll never know how much you rely on them until your trusty barrow breaks down – so here are the top 2 picks from our hard-wearing stock!
Don’t let the name fool you, this is may be a heavy-duty wheelbarrow, but it’s so light and easy to handle that it makes an ideal garden barrow too. It’s simply built to contractor standard – which is a good thing in anyone’s books!
This is a fantastic addition to your gardening toolbox: it’s a standard-tray wheelbarrow with one distinct feature: the ezi-pour lip. What a difference this makes when tipping out dirt, sand, or debris! Try it for yourself, you’ll be amazed!
