Rob Staines Garden Tools

Hi, my name is Rob Staines and I am the creator of this site. I started this site because I have an interest in machinery, and now spending time in my garden, I enjoy using my powered garden tools to maintain my yard. Here at we endeavor to help you with deciding what power tools will be best for you to use to help maintain your backyard.

A little bit about me, after leaving school I completed an apprenticeship as a mechanic, and then spent a large part of my life in the agriculture industry. I have a large interest in everything mechanical and the maintenance of my tools ensuring that I get the best out of them and they last for a long time.

Growing crops most of my farming life, when preparing the soil for planting, I have used both tilling the soil and also used no till ways in getting the soil ready. Over the years I have learnt that there are advantages and disadvantages to tilling the soil in preparation for planting your seeds.

For a few years I owned a mowing and gardening service. In this business I used a lot of gardening tools to make my job a lot easier.  Some of the jobs involved mowing lawns, big and small areas. A nicely cut lawn always looks a lot more impressive when the edges are neat and tidy as well.

For me to get the best results for my clients, I had to rely on my tools to do the job. That meant having good quality tools, which would be used frequently. But most importantly the maintenance on the tools needed to be done regularly. So, the care, upkeep and storage of my tools was top priority to finish each job.
