Power tools can be very helpful when working on your garden, speeding up many of the long and laborious manual processes involved in gardening. When you want to get the job done quickly and neatly, it can really help to use the right machinery. Here, we have put together a list of some of the most important pieces of gardening equipment for your to browse through:


These will come in electric and petrol varieties. Petrol is the most powerful, with these lawnmowers usually being used for large gardens or gardens that slope. Electric is more environmentally friendly and easier to maintain. Whichever type you choose, it will make your life a lot easier than using a manual lawnmower.


An auger is used in conjunction with a drill to make holes in the earth, usually for planting trees, plants, flowers and bulbs. They can also be used to make potholes when needed. Using an auger can save you lots of time during planting season.

Leaf Blowers and Vacuums

Chainsaws can be used for tree maintenance as well as for DIY projects such as building garden furniture or landscaping items. There are wireless options available for convenience.

Hedge Trimmers 

A hedge trimmer will save you having to trim back your hedges with manual shears, also helping to give you a much neater finish. There are different lengths available depending on the height of the hedges you need to cut.


These are some of the most common gardening power tools that people use. They can make a real difference to both avid gardeners and people needing to have a seasonal tidy up of their outdoor space.
