If you haven’t done anything with your garden since last summer, however, it may be in need of some love and attention but knowing where to begin might be a bit tricky.

First, you’ll need to make a plan. Will you try to do it all in a day or tackle each job over the course of a week? Once you’ve got a timetable in mind, you’ll need to ensure you have all of the correct equipment so that you can tidy your garden effectively and get it in top shape for your guests.

To help, here are some equipment ideas to get things looking good in your garden again.


A staple item for any garden, the lawnmower will be pivotal to making your patch look clean and tidy. Your lawn is a standout part of your property, so make sure it looks as good as possible.

Electric tools

Once your lawn is looking great, it’s time to move on to the more intricate details. This involves trimming hedges and the grass edges. Electric grass trimmers and hedge trimmers are great options for this as they make it more straightforward to complete tasks, which means you’ll have more energy for other garden tidying.

Electric garden tools are significantly more expensive than manual ones, however, so it’s important that you consider your finances before spending money on them. Manual tools can still do a great job, they just require a bit more effort and patience.

Digging tools

Now that your garden is looking tidy, it’s time to add some new features to really wow your guests. Planting flowers or vegetable plants will add some vibrant colors to your outdoor space and make it look attractive. The most popular plant color trends for 2022 include Cercis ‘Eternal Flame’ Judas Tree and Xerochrysum ‘Granvia Gold’.

To plant these, you’ll need to grow the plant in a pot until it’s big enough to place in the ground. You’ll need a small spade to do this, which should be relatively inexpensive.
As you can see, tidying up your garden can be done in a few straightforward steps, you’ll just need to make sure you have the right equipment and can-do attitude to tackle it.
