Just recently I went through the painstaking task of totally landscaping my garden and it was in a right mess. The great news is about the landscape process I learnt some tricks and it all came from the garden tooling in that I had invested in. Most of the tools were pretty simple but the one that was a complete surprise there was a garden shredder and I was really surprised by just how useful it was and what applications I managed to get from it. 90 Tudor Gardens Runner manage tell me clear up the garden.
We also managed to provide move loads of moles for the rest of the flower beds, and it also managed to help me with composting. On top of that, you wouldn’t believe the other additional benefits such as the moisture retention in the ground, as well as also having somewhere to make a wonderful walk path with mulch as well. Overall, there were so many positive things I’m going to go through all of them and which model I bought for my landscape project.
How my garden shredder made such light work of the landscape clearance
Because I invested quite heavily in my garden shredder, I was quite able to cut and break down some of the really big chunks of wood. It meant that it gave me some seriously decent wood chips as well. It made incredibly light work of any medium sized shrubs and when I took down a couple of trees it really took those branches to pieces as well. What really surprised me was just how safe and quiet the thing was. It was actually because its electric that really helped me with the sound. If you bought a petrol version of course it’s going to be a far more noisy but then you probably going to end up with more power still. But the version I bought had a 45mm cutting ability which is more than ample if you think about the fact that is a whopping two inches!
I bought the Bosch Garden Shredder AXT 25 TC from gardentoolbox.co.uk
I actually bought the Bosch Garden Shredder AXT 25 TC from Garden Tool Box. I went with these guys because they gave me free advice on how to use the item as well. It was very appreciated because I’m quite a novice when it comes to garden shredders and they knew absolutely everything. They explained to me that this particular Bosch garden shredder was capable of going through both soft and hard materials. That means that you could say go through cardboard as well as wood. It is really useful when you will be doing other things than a landscape project because then you want to have as many uses as possible from your garden shredder.
For me the biggest selling point of this Bosch garden shredder with the fact that he’s got an easy release if there’s ever a blockage. Blocked is a really, when it comes to garden shredders because they simply don’t typically have the power of a commercial one. So they’ve got a method basically really releases the timber or whatever you’ve got jammed in their very quickly. Which is really handy because I’ve experienced a situation whereby took me nearly an hour to get a decent bit of wood out of the original shredder that I bought.
What would I say about my landscape project after using the garden shredder?
The thing that ] surprised me the most about using this garden shredder on my landscape project was the fact that it had a collection box which meant all of the mulch and wood chips that I gather didn’t really need to be picked up or anything, it was just a simple case of taking off the collection box and then spreading it wherever I wanted to. Firstly, I started my flower beds and I realised I had so much mulch that Istarted to begin making garden pathway from them. That was when I set it to a higher larger chip settings so that I could make bigger chips that would make do for a garden pathway as well.
If I had to do another garden project I’d definitely make sure that I had my garden shredder on hand because it was a really useful Ally. One of the other tools that I really benefited from was a chainsaw but perhaps I’ll go through that in another article. Because it’s not really appropriate here cover that in this write up. It was more to showcase how useful a garden shredder was seeing the situation of trying to remodel my garden. It really helped and I gained some really valuable compost as well as clear a lot of mess that would have otherwise had to have gone to the garden tip! This was really good because it means that we managed to save some materials ending up in a landfill site as well!
