Thanks for your replys they have been very infomative. Id love to keep the disscusion going to see if i can gain further insights into the issues you experience when in the garden.

What are your views on creating a lawnmower/strimmer for city gardens and small garden spaces, where storage for these kinds of products can be a factor. This product would deal with reducing the overall scale and weight making the product more compact. I understand that Ryobi has released a product with interchangable attachments however i feel that the scale and weight are still an issue for an elderly user and for people with limited storage space.


This is just an idea, if anyone wants to expand or turn the disscussion in another direction that would be great.

I am a Product Design Engineering student at Glasgow University, for my final year project i am looking in the gardening market and the tools used by various demographics. I am looking to gain insights into the sort of problems experienced when using such products as lawn mowers, strimmers, hedge cutters etc. 

For example, an elderly user struggling with the weighty products, or a user in a flat struggling to store the equipment used to maintain small gardens.

I would be interested to hear about any problems you may have and general any improvements/ideas you'd like to see in future products.

Thanks for your time any response would be greatly appreciated.
