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. This is our Makita cordless lawn mower and strimmer review.
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.
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.
I am going to preempt this post by saying that we have never built anything from scratch, so when the air source heat pump was installed, it was an outlandish thought that we should build a log store around it.
