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.
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.
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.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
