The addition of a number of new gardening tools, from big-name brands such as Black & Decker and specialist brands such as CEL UK, means that Tool-NET customers tidying up their gardens and outdoor spaces in time for summer have a greater choice of garden tools.

Tool-NET today announced that, alongside in-store deals, there are some fantastic deals to be unearthed when ordering online at Its wide selection of garden tools attract discounts of up to 70% on the list price and include the latest Black & Decker 36V Cordless Blower/Sweeper (GWC3600L) currently available for the trim and tidy sum of £129.20, against a list price of £232.80.

To help its customers decide which tools they may immediately be needing, Tool-NET has issued a list of five essential jobs for spring to get your garden and outdoor space ready for the summer ahead.

Top of the list is not a gardening project but a mundane task too often overlooked: clearing the gutters of leaves, moss, twig and debris. There is a risk that water can collect at blockages and run through the eaves into the walls of the home. Grab a ladder, gloves and trowel and get scraping.

Scrubbing and coating decking really helps bring it to life and provide the perfect frame for the garden beyond. Decking oil will help preserve your decking for years to come if applied each spring.

The humble garden shed can be your best friend this summer if it is kept clean and tidy. Have a clear-out by recycling old equipment, and using storage solutions like hooks, shelves and boxes. This will help turn your shed into a well-organised work and storage space for garden projects and summer entertaining.

A rake of the lawn is essential in spring: not only does it clear away debris, but it also lets air and light reach the healthy parts of the lawn. Spring is also a great time to reseed any dead patches of lawn, allowing the grass to become established before your garden receives its heaviest use in the summer.

Spring is also the ideal time for moving and removing. Weed all the beds early, before those unwanted plants spread, and relocate any shrubs so they can bed down in time for late spring and summer’s growth.

Whatever garden project you may be undertaking this spring, there is a huge choice of tools available at Tool-NET, with up to 70% pruned off the list price.
