Garden power tools are surprisingly useful in residential households no matter how big or small your outdoor space. They make easy work of what used to be tiring tasks. From trimming trees or hedges to blowing away leaves and debris, garden power tools are a must have for every household. Newtons stocks a wide range of garden power tools for every need. We also provide servicing and repairs for all types and models.

“Must Haves” for your Garden Power Tools include;


A blower is the “must have” Garden Power Tool for everyone as they have a variety of uses. Besides the obvious blowing leaves, clippings and debris, some other surprising uses include:

  • Cleaning out debris from your lawn mower
  • Cleaning clogged gutters
  • Drying your car after washing
  • Clear out your dryer vents

The most common use for a blower is to move leaves from grass or other parts of the garden. Although it may seem like a simple task, have a strategy, pick your day wisely and use an efficient technique. We suggest walking slowly with the blower at your side, using back-and-forth motions for a smooth flow of air.

The most efficient way to gather leaves is to blow the leaves in one direction into small sections then blow them in their final resting place. Think about blowing onto a tarp for easy collection and disposal.

Try removing your leaves on days with no wind or when the wind is blowing in the direction that you want the leaves to go. As such, you won’t get far trying to move leaves on a day with strong winds. It’s also much harder to blow wet leaves than dry ones. So, test the moisture by blowing at the base of the pile of leaves. If it struggles to move, it is too wet and better done another day when they are dryer.

Hedge trimmers

As the name would suggest, hedge trimmers are used to trim hedges. As a general rule, if you have flowering or fruiting hedge you will want to wait until all flowers or fruit have grown before trimming with this garden power tool. Other than that, you will only need to trim in the summer, unless it is a formal hedge and you want a shape with more structure. Furthering this, formative pruning is done right after planting a hedge to dictate the shape you want. In contrast, deciduous hedges will need to be trimmed in the winter after planting and evergreen hedges to be pruned in the spring. Both varieties will need to be trimmed regularly for the first two years to form their shape.

Brush Cutters and Trimmers:

Brush cutters can be powerful enough to cut though overgrown plants, weeds are grass that lawn mowers could not handle. These garden power tools have a specific cutting area so if you start hacking at the vegetation with random actions you will likely damage the machine. However, when you operate the machine effectively you will make short work of removing unwanted bushes. Remember, the cutting zone is at the top of the blade, 90 degrees to the left. So make sure to feed the blade into the vegetation slowly and press up against the part you wish to remove. If you hit a thick branch the machine will kick back so always work with a strong stance and with a firm grip just in case.
