Green Technology set to change Gardening Landscape at Decorex Durban

The transition to cleaner energy has reached a critical point globally as the impact of years of fossil fuel use becomes evident in dramatic climate change events. EGO Power, a company leading the green revolution in the gardening and landscaping arena, will be launching its new energy-efficient product range – a first for South Africa – at the revolutionary Garden of the Future. This unmissable feature will be taking place at Decorex Durban, sponsored by Plascon, running at the Durban Exhibition Centre from 21 to 25 March.


“The world is changing, fast. Our whole society is moving away from fossil fuels and adopting cleaner, greener energy. It’s why we believe it’s time for a new, smarter way to power through gardening and landscaping tasks,” explained Jarryd McDonald, CMO of Smith Power Equipment, distributors of EGO in South Africa. “We believe Decorex Durban is the perfect platform to engage with people in residential and commercial markets directly which is why we’ve decided to launch the impressive new EGO Power range at the exhibition. It is a completely new brand that we believe will revolutionise the garden and landscaping market.”


For the past decade, EGO Power has been researching, developing and perfecting their industry POWER+ machinery which uses ground-breaking technology in its design and function. This incredible range of cordless outdoor power equipment will be on display at the Garden of the Future, with experts available to explain how they exhibit the power and performance of petrol-run technology without any of the noise, fuss and fumes.


Visitors can expect to see demonstrations of EGO Power’s range of self-powered mowers, push mowers, handheld blowers, string trimmers, chainsaws, hedge trimmers and many other landscape-enhancing equipment, all powered using cutting-edge green technology. The arc lithium designed battery delivers a new level of performance, offering dependable power and the fastest possible re-charge.


“All the EGO Power products are comfortable to use, with impressive run times and fast recharge, giving the consumer the ultimate in convenience,” explained Jarryd McDonald. “There are no trips to the petrol station for fuel and no need to store highly flammable liquids. There is also no concern about noise issues associated with many petrol-fuelled products. Each item has been carefully designed and engineered by this global organisation which is renowned for delivering professional quality. Ego Power has essentially changed the nature of lawn and garden equipment forever.”


Commenting on the feature, Sian Cullingworth, Portfolio Director: Design, Lifestyle and Retail Exhibitions, said these clean-energy initiatives are in line with the Decorex ethos, evident at all three Decorex shows. “From exhibition set-up and on-day practices to the features and products showcased at our shows, Decorex is committed to environmentally-responsible practices while creating as much awareness about energy-efficient options for our visitors. This year’s Garden of the Future is a really great example of how adopting greener practices can benefit the consumer and environment.”
