Spring is the season of hope and fresh beginnings as we slowly start to see nature burst back to life after the long winter months.
Spring is also a great time to start tidying up your garden and doing some gardening. It’s also a time when we start wishing our neighbours had quiet leaf blowers and lawnmowers!
According to the National Trust, many gardeners will be busy sowing seeds and preparing flower borders and vegetable patches as the weather gets warmer and the days get longer.
March and April are good months to plant perennials, sow hardy annuals like marigolds and plant summer flowering bulbs like lilies and gladioli.
However, before making your plans, you might need to take a moment to consider what garden tools you’ll need.
There are plenty of garden power tools available to help make your life a little easier including –
- String trimmers
- Hedge trimmers
- Leaf blowers
- Shrub Shears
- Pressure washer
Here is a selection of Quiet Mark certified garden power tools that can help to quietly get your garden ready for spring!
Quiet Mark Garden Power Tools
Using quiet garden power tools can provide several benefits including reduced noise pollution, helping to protect your hearing, better for the environment (quieter tools tend to consume less energy) and probably helping you to concentrate better!
According to the Royal Horticultural Society,
“hedges require formative pruning on planting, plus maintenance trimming to keep them within bounds. Pruning times vary depending on the type of hedge”.
Coniferous hedges, for example, should ideally be pruned in early spring before new growth starts to appear. Pruning during this time helps to ensure that the hedge will have time to recover before the growing season begins.
The Stihl HSA 26 battery-powered handheld shrub shears are brilliant for use in small and large gardens alike, as they make pruning small-leaved trees and shrubs so easy!

The HSA 26 also comes with an interchangeable grass trimming blade, which is quick and easy to switch over and is perfect for quickly tidying up lawn edges.
It all comes in a handy canvas case to conveniently carry and store the shears, both blades, the battery and the charger.
For slightly bigger jobs such as trimming overgrown branches in small to medium-sized gardens, the HSA 45 is STIHL’s lightest cordless hedge trimmer and would be a good choice.
It has an integrated battery with an indicator to show the current charge level. It has a single-sided cutter blade with 24 mm tooth spacing, integrated cut protection, a screw-on tip protector, and an integrated battery with a charge level indicator. The approximate working time is up to 40 minutes.

Quiet Leaf Blowers
Before giving your lawn its first cut of the season or making plans about what to plant, you’ll need to create a blank canvas. Quiet leaf blowers are ideal tools for this as they’ll keep your garden clear of leaves or debris such as hedge trimmings and fallen branches.
The Stihl BGA 45 is an easy-to-use cordless blower for clearing small outdoor areas at home. It has a round nozzle with an integrated battery that has a charge level indicator and can clear up to 200 m2 on one charge.

One of the biggest tasks of the spring and summer months is maintaining your lawn.
According to the National Garden Scheme,
“the winter always leaves lawns looking worn and scruffy, especially where they are prone to moss”.
Once you’ve given your grass its first cut in the spring when the weather starts to warm up, you’ll start to notice some growth. That’s also a good time to feed and weed it.
The Stihl RMA 235 is ideal for gardens up to an area of 200 m². It has a folding, height-adjustable handlebar for easy storage, an integrated carrying handle and a deck made of high-impact, heat and UV-resistant polymer.
It also features our innovative grass catcher box – with vents that face downward, grass or dust cannot escape upwards and airflow is maximised to collect as much grass as possible.

Grass trimmers are great for trimming overgrown patches of grass before mowing it, or for adding the finishing touches to your lawn edges.
The Stihl FSA 57 battery-powered grass trimmer is perfect for medium to large gardens. It is lightweight, quiet and easy to manoeuvre around your garden, with an adjustable loop handle that helps you to guide the trimmer exactly where you need it.
The shaft is also extendable, so you can adjust it to suit your height. An additional grass-cutting line is available.

Houseplants are a great option, especially when accompanied by a colourful planter.
