Designed to stir and pulverise soil, cultivators are an ideal way to aerate soil prior to seeding. They’re also a fantastic way to root out tough weeds, and they’re ideally suited to anyone who’s trying to manage large flower beds.
Because they need a lot of staying power, most cultivators are petrol powered. However, recent advances in battery technology have allowed manufacturers to introduce cordless cultivators. These may be slightly less robust, but they’re easier to handle and more eco-friendly.
If you’re tackling a tough job, a petrol cultivator is probably the way to go, but if you’re just trying to manage large ornamental flower beds, you might want to look into a cordless option.
