As the sun starts to shine a bit brighter and the days get longer, it’s time to gear up for one of the most exciting times in the gardening calendar – spring! To help you get your garden in top shape for the blooming season, we’ve compiled the top five essential garden jobs you should tackle in the lead-up to spring and introduce you to some Cyclone garden tools that’ll make these tasks a breeze!

Pruning and Trimming

As winter bids adieu, it’s time to tidy up your plants and shrubs. Pruning not only improves their overall health but also encourages new growth. Grab Cyclone’s Telescopic Bypass Lopper for precise trimming of overgrown branches. Its adjustable handle length allows you to reach even the highest branches without breaking a sweat. Remember to remove dead or diseased wood too, ensuring a fresh start for your garden.

Soil Preparation

A happy garden starts with healthy soil. Turn over the soil in your beds using Cyclone’s Garden Fork to aerate and break up any compacted areas. Incorporate organic matter like compost or well-rotted manure to enrich the soil with nutrients. This essential step sets the stage for robust plant growth come springtime.

Weed Control

Pesky weeds can easily take over your garden if left unchecked. It’s time to take control and banish them! Cyclone’s Extract Weeder is your best friend here, making weed removal a breeze in just 3-easy steps. Say goodbye to those intruders and create a weed-free paradise.


Give your garden a protective blanket with a layer of mulch. Mulching helps retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature. Spread a generous layer around your plants, leaving a few centimeters around the stem to prevent rot. Cyclone’s Garden Rake is perfect for an even distribution of mulch, ensuring your plants get the coverage they need.

Planting for Spring

Last but certainly not least, get ready to welcome spring with a burst of colours! Plant your favourite spring-flowering bulbs like daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths. Cyclone’s Bulb Trowel will be your handy companion, ensuring effortless bulb planting. Don’t forget to prepare your garden beds for annuals and perennials that thrive in the warmer months.

Bonus Tip

While you’re busy prepping your garden, don’t forget to show some love to your trusted garden tools. Clean them thoroughly and sharpen the blades to ensure optimal performance. Cyclone’s Sharpening & Maintenance Kit is a must-have for keeping your tools sharp and ready for action.

Prepping your garden for spring might sound like a lot of work, but with the right tools from Cyclone, it becomes an enjoyable and rewarding experience. Embrace the transformation, and soon you’ll be rewarded with a stunning garden that bursts into life as spring unfolds.
