Maintaining a garden is no easy task and without the correct tools, it’s made even harder. However, if you want a single tool that’ll tackle every gardening task, a dedicated garden multi-tool that comes with multiple attachments is exactly what you require. Whether you use a cordless or petrol multi-tool, both provide flexibility without needing multiple tools.
To assist you in selecting a garden multi-tool, our handpicked selection lists top-performing tools, chosen based on our first-hand experience using them to carry out hedge trimming, lawn edging, cutting branches from tall trees, and so much more. Our testing and up-to-date research further ensure the quality of our recommendations.

How The DIY Works Team Tests & Rates Garden Multi Tools
Garden multi-tools have become increasingly popular over the last few years and more brands are releasing new or updated tools that we have been testing. From trimming overgrown conifers to cutting branches off trees, we’ve tried and tested multiple garden multi-tools to base our recommendations on.
During our ongoing testing, we analyse the tool’s performance, ease of switching the attachments and extensions, the contents of the complete kit and its usability.
As shown in the photos below, we attempt to test the multi-tools as they are intended to be used and this can include cutting through thick silver birch branches to perfectly shaping a conifer and so much more.
To keep up our commitment to reviewing and testing the latest garden multi-tools (for this article), we are continually testing out the latest offerings from top brands in the UK. This means that when we notice a brand has released a new and improved model, we will attempt to buy it and put it to the test where applicable.
As well as our testing and experience with multiple garden multi-tools, we also based our recommendations on the latest research and several factors. Some of the factors that we took into consideration included the tool’s performance, build quality, ease of switching the attachments and extensions, usability, weight, warranty and value for money.
