We removed some weeds and unwanted climbers outside the kitchen window in the back garden and turned it into a more attractive plant and flower bed. In order to get some vibrant summer colour, we opted for a mix of 'Zeal Tan' and 'Severn Sunrise' crocosmia plants, with Luzula Sylvatica grasses in front.
We purchased the Stihl HSE 71 hedge trimmer to keep the hedgerow that shields us from the lane that passes our property neat and tidy. In addition to this, we have some hedgerows on the other side of the property that separate us from grazing field so we needed some powerful tools to help us keep them under control. The verdict from our review is in.
We purchased two cordless Makita garden tools, the DLM431 lawn mower and DUR181Z strimmer, to help us maintain our manicured front and back garden. We're not fans of petrol motors, and given the distance from the nearest power socket to areas we need to maintain, we opted for battery operated tools.
We were in need of some serious strimming power to help us tackle a field that had become overgrown with grass and dock leaves. After extensive online research we purchased a Ryobi RBC1226I Electric 2-in-1 1200W strimmer. This is the first time we have purchased a Ryobi product and our verdict is in.
