There are two things I wouldn't be without for any size garden; a gas powered blower and a gas powered weed wacker. Even a garden on a patio is easily cleaned up in minutes using a blower. I use it to blow grass off plant beds, blow water off hedges to prune, to clean any and all concrete or gravel surfaces. Heck decks, driveways. I blow the lawn that is wet to raise the mohawks to cut the lawn cleaner. I've tried blowing garages but you have to make sure there are no fire sprinklers 'cause that becomes embarrassing and a big big mess, grins. Seriously, I couldn't live without my blower even if all I had was a 10X10 yard!
Forget removing leaves in fall, I just blow the lawn and hard surfaces off the leaves go onto the plant beds. By spring, those leaves are pretty much gone, decomposed. Those that are left I rake up and put in my compost pile. Otherwise, slugs, snails, pill bugs and earwigs are encouraged.
Stihl, is my favorite blower and weed wacker. Easy to get parts. Pick up extra filters both gas and air. Keep the dirt out of that engine it will last forever. I have a Red Max weed wacker that is at least 40 years old. Not sold anymore. My Stihl blower is 25 years old. I had one of the heavier red Stihl blowers that would have been 30 years old but got stolen. Lock your equipment up. A very big deal to steal and take to the pawn shops for money.
Oh, and purchase GOOD oil, premeasured in those little bottles to make one gallon mixes. Or always always measure and mix like you are doing a science experiment! Mix every single time you pour mixed gas into your machine. Shake shake shake. I even shake the blower while on my back by jumping up and down!
Lastly, never use gasoline with ethanol. I won't use ethanol gas even in my truck. Ugh. Electric blowers are a joke. You will love your blower, I kid you not. It will get you out into the garden an awful lot more as well. Let us know what you get and how it works for you!
