Life is meant to be enjoyed, especially the simple pleasures. For me, these pleasures have always been being in the outdoors. Nowadays, since modern lifestyle doesn’t leave much time for being outdoors like before, I stay in touch with nature through gardening. As soon as I started getting addicted to this pastime activity, I realised why it is that people are so drawn to it, and how true the connection is with health benefits.
Whenever I feel like I could do with some rest and relaxation, I head out to my space of greenery, be it to tend to the plants’ needs, or just enjoy their company. There I was going about my days, filled with positive energy, until, alas, one day my harmony was ruined by the appearance of weeds all over my garden.
To use Jane Austen’s probably most famous quote as an inspiration to my tale, “It is a truth universally acknowledged that whenever you start enjoying life, something must appear and steal away your good spirits.”, that is, until a weed wacker came to my rescue.
Since my lawn mower wasn’t proving to be efficient, especially when it came to specific difficult-to-reach areas, like in between my tiles, fences, the lawn edges, and right by my newly planted flower beds… I was starting to feel a bit helpless because you might imagine pulling a great number of weeds by hand is certainly not the ideal garden chore, especially not when you have to do it every few days. Up until then I wasn’t into enhancing my tools collection other than the basic manual tools, but after getting a weed wacker (also known as line trimmer, and whipper snipper), I can say power tools are the best gardening allies any gardener can have.
Having a rather big garden, I got one of the petrol weed wackers – making a mighty sound, trimming weeds in just one swift motion. The efficiency of these wackers comes from their ingenious user-friendly SpringAssist start-up system, wider diameter, and engines that make all the work easy and quick. If you’re up for something smaller, based on your smaller garden, you can choose from the electric wackers (corded or cordless).
My enjoyment is restored once more, and even doubled, since not only do I manage to get rid of annoying weeds in no time, not wasting any effort of my own, but also I get to trim my lawn and shrubs so neatly, I could definitely win if I signed up for a competition in perfectly trimmed gardens.
