We recently had a friend visit us who stood awkwardly on one of our slate steps leading to our front door. The friend was fine, but the step, well, not so much. The slate must have been very brittle and large chunk came away.
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 returned home earlier today and arrived to a flutter of butterflies, and they are particularly fond of the buddleia bush. It’s not worth the effort trying to describe the scene, so check out our photo gallery.
Shortly after moving into our new house, we established a delicious tradition: pizza movie night on Saturdays. This has allowed us to experiment with our dough and come up with an awesome homemade stuffed crust pizza, and we’re sharing our recipe and technique with you. Follow our step-by-step video to making our delicious pizza.
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 got a really good deal on an olive tree at Morrisons. The average price for a ‘cheap’ online planter that’s around 50x50x50cm in size is £50 and they are made from thin, flimsy wood, and we needed two. We did the maths and good quality, treated wood for two 60x60x60cm box planters was going to cost us around £40, a saving of £60.
