All in One: Multifunctional Garden Tools

Today, the garden is a space that fulfills multiple purposes, and as such the tools needed for its care are becoming increasingly versatile. New electrical appliances offer numerous attachments and can be used as a brush, grout cleaner, lawnmower, and edge trimmer. There are also quick-change systems for new mist blowers for vertical and horizontal wetting of plants. The power of alliance initiatives also contributes to today’s versatility – more and more companies are joining initiatives that enable the operation of the diverse tools of different manufacturers and the use of the same battery. For their storage, new tool sheds are individually designable and extendable.

Gentle Care: Garden Work for More Variety

To protect the flora and fauna more and more regional, natural protection, and care products are used when gardening. For example, modern fertilizers are made from clover. Using one’s compost as a fertilizer also promotes environmentally-friendly plant care. Large and small models of practical composters are available for this purpose. Garden creation and care are done without chemicals. Endangered plant species, which belong to the line-ups of many garden centers today, contribute towards maintaining biodiversity.

Own Harvest: Trend towards Self-Sufficiency

Growing one’s herbs, fruit and vegetables became increasingly popular even before food prices went up. Even if only limited space is available, their cultivation is being made easier with small greenhouses, plant towers, and pyramids. Stackable trays enable space-saving storage. Furthermore, easy-to-operate and compact tools are offered, especially for urban gardening. And, in case it gets too hot in small outdoor areas, plant pots protect the greenery up to temperatures of 50 degrees Celsius. There are water butts with integrated plant holders that offer additional cultivation areas.

Greener Industry: CO2 Neutral and Recycled Products

Overall, the green industry is becoming “greener”. Many suppliers use wind power and green electricity for the production of their garden products in the meantime. The remaining emissions are compensated for by promoting reforestation or climate protection projects. Many new garden products are 100 percent recyclable or CO2-neutral. Renewable raw materials such as wood from sustainably managed forests are increasingly being used as the materials for greenhouses or plant growing aids. Furthermore, plant pots are often made of other natural materials like seaweed, reused wickerwork, or recycled plastic.
