Want to give your garden an overhaul ready for the summer months? Start by adding a pressure washer to your shopping list.

Pressure washing or power washing is the use of a high-pressure water spray to remove grime, dust and dirt from surfaces and objects such as buildings, vehicles and concrete surfaces.

But when it comes to our gardens specifically, it means that we can thoroughly clean out the cracks in our paving, our wooden decking, the old garden furniture that’s been piled up in the shed and perhaps even our bikes.

In short, it can transform anything from weathered and worn, to sparkling and new in moments - and it feels pretty satisfying to use too.

However, it is important to understand which pressure washer is best suited to your needs; we don’t need an industrial-sized version (nor could we carry it) and we’re also not cleaning experts (unless you’re reading this, Mrs Hinch) so we need a bit of guidance.

Luckily, those who have gone before us have done the hard work for us and, when it comes to home-use, they rate the Karcher K2 Compact Pressure Washer, which is currently on sale at Currys PC World for only £69.99 as part of its Epic Deals event.

Considering the majority of pressure washers usually retail for over £100, this lightweight and compact pressure washer may be just what you've been looking for.

The biggest selling point is that this top-rated Karcher is lightweight and portable, making it easy to carry around your outside space, as well as to store.

It might be small, but it’s also mighty, as it can wash everything from your car, to blasting away dirt from the drive and outdoor furniture.

The pressure washer comes with a four metre pressure hose for easy reach, as well as a trigger gun for easy control, a one-way lance and a dirt blaster lance for optimal cleaning results.

Unsurprisingly, garden-owners up and down the country have praised the product’s washing abilities.

What the reviews say

The pressure washer has hundreds of five star reviews at Currys PC World, with an average 9.2 out of 10 rating.

  • "The whole item is brilliant, compact and powerful, cleaned my patio with ease, lightweight, hardly any vibrations so comfortable to use. I personally found no bad points with this product and would highly recommend it."

  • "Excellent product, ease of set up and use. Cleans more than a bike as described on packaging. Cleans your car, paving stones and decking brilliantly."

  • "Great machine, would recommend. I cleaned a driveway in 90 minutes, normally with my old power washer it would take double the time, very light."

  • "Easy to use. Does the job - I would not have made such a good job of cleaning the plastic decking around my holiday home without it."

  • "Very pleased with this product. We cleaned our patio and garden tiles very easily. No issues at all."

  • "Very light, easy to move and use, and surprisingly powerful for such a compact machine."
