Garden

The garden has a lot of room for improvement, I will be listing out all the things I have done to bring our visions to life.

Looking to get a new pole saw

Now that much of the interior fitting and fixing are completed on the house, I have been looking at ways to improve my back yards appearance, and one of the first things that was brought up was the amount of space the trees take up. If we could cut them back somehow, the garden would seem so much more spacious and inviting. So that’s when I begun looking for a pole saw.

Unknown to me at the time, was the amount of variety in type and brands on the market, which made research that little bit more difficult. I have searched around for buying guides in that past that didn’t lead me too far as to which offers the best quality, and which is suitable to my requirements. Most websites seemed to have vague descriptions of various pruning tools and trimmers, but it wasn’t until I stumbled upon this article – The best pole saws – Polesawpicks.com, that I started to get a more in depth understanding of how each model works, how it can benefit me, and some excellent advice regarding maintaining the products.

After filtering through the various types – which included gas powered, electric powered, and cordless options, there was several contenders for my needs. These included the Husqvarna 128LDX, the Poulan Pro PP258TP, the Remington RM2599, and the GreenWorks 20672. Now all of these had qualities in their own right, and the capability to do what I needed. But I had a certain budget to follow, along with a specific reach. All of which was provided by them, and really helped speed up my buying decision.

In the end, I went for a gas powered pole saw called the Remington RM2599. It fulfilled all my specifications and more and after arriving last week, set up was simple and of the light usage I have had of it so far, i’m also very impressed by the cut quality. I have already finished pruning back two of the main trees, with a few more to go, which will be completed in the coming weeks.

The back yard is really starting to look the part, it has a much more modern feel to it, with plenty more sunlight reaching the grass, which was a big problem before and limiting growth of flowers and plants.

There are a few more minor improvements to finish before I consider it job done, but we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
