SUMMER is back, with temperatures soaring again today, so it’s time to get in the garden again.
Here we round up the best gadgets to keep it looking good.
They will help you to enjoy it while it’s scorching this week, but also when the typical cooler British weather returns.
Plus, lots of stores have offers on, so shop around.
Verve LCD screen electronic water timer, £25, B&Q
THIS handy gadget lets you automate your watering system.
Fit between your tap and hose and pick the schedule that works for you.
Watering times range from one minute to four hours and it’s very easy to program.
HGE cordless hedge trimmer, £99.99, Karcher (no battery included)
KARCHER’S cordless tools are great because they all share the same rechargeable battery.

The battery (not included in price) lasts ages and your garden will be neat and tidy in no time.
LTR cordless lawn trimmer (with battery), £119.98, Toolstation
THE sun and rain means the grass has gone wild.
This trimmer is super light and great at reaching tight spots and corners.
Again, no need to worry about chopping a cord since it’s got a battery (included in price), which lasts for ages.
Parasol, £20, B&Q
LOTS of places are sold-out but B&Q has a good range of parasols including this bargain range that comes in three bright colours – blue, orange and gold.
Keeps the sun off as you eat . . . and you can take it to the park or beach.

Solar lightbulb string lights, £12.95, Homebase
A SET of ten, they can be hung on shrubs, trellises, parasols and doorways.
No need for plugs because they charge in direct sunlight and turn on at dusk.
They won’t last all night but well after bedtime.
Worx Landroid S300 cordless robotic lawnmower, £498, B&Q
PUT your feet up and let this mower do the work for you.
You run a wire around your lawn so it knows where to mow and once that’s done it’s completely automated.

Starts mowing at a press of a button.
