The days are drawing in and temperatures are dropping. There is a crisp chill in the air and that distinctive crunch underfoot of freshly fallen golden leaves – Autumn has arrived!
Autumn is the bridge between Summer and Winter and the perfect time to prepare your garden for the cooler months ahead. From garden maintenance to sowing bulbs and vegetables for an early harvest next year, there is plenty to keep us busy in the garden this Autumn.

Petrol is changing to E10 this September in the UK. But what does that mean for your Mountfield lawnmower?
E10 fuel may be great news for the environment, however, the increased ethanol content can cause issues in your lawnmower’s engine if not stored and used correctly. Petrol starts to go 'stale' after about 30 days. It will go stale whether it is stored in a jerry can or inside your lawnmower’s engine. It is important not to use petrol that has gone stale in your lawnmower. We recommend adding Mountfield universal fuel stabiliser to freshly purchased petrol. Fuel stabiliser is an additive that will keep your petrol from going stale for up to two years! Get yours here
Why not free yourself from the mess and fumes of petrol altogether with our Freedom battery-powered garden tools.
Gold, red, crimson, amber, auburn, yellow, maroon, orange and brown, our gardens are beginning to glow with the fabulous colours of autumn.
This is the time of year to catch up on all your garden maintenance in preparation for the harsher winter months. From clearing leaves to pruning trees and giving your lawn its final mow of the year, Mountfield has you covered with our extensive range of garden tools.
As the leaves begin to fall it’s time to blow them away with the help of a Mountfield blower. That carpet of glorious gold may look lovely covering your lawn but it blocks the grass below from receiving much needed sunlight in order to store energy over the winter. Wet leaves can also lead to mould and fungal infections in your lawn.
Free your lawn with our range of powerful and lightweight cordless blowers from our freedom ranges.
Make light work of cutting your hedge with one of our hedge trimmers or long reach hedge trimmers and multi tools. Balanced, precise and powerful with a choice of petrol or cordless battery power from our Freedom range.
