What does this mean? Well a hell of a lot of hard work in all honesty BUT Bosch asked me to choose something from their Garden Tools range up to £100 to assist me in this makeover and I’m going for one article only, the Rotak 34 seen here to the right, isn’t she a beauty? She’s ever so incy wincely above their limit but check this out ‘the new ‘Ergoflex system’ enables better steering and a better body position’ so I figured watching The Man Of The House going up and down would be a much prettier sight if his posture was correct, right?
Why did I choose this? Well our current lawnmower doesn’t collect the cut grass so the girls drag it in gradually and leave it all over the house which is really annoying. So even if I don’t win the competition (which I will) at least my floors will be cleaner from now on.
Next up are these guys Green Thumb who have a really fun site (leave the animation on as it’s so funny!) but more interestingly can help getting our lawn looking well like an English lawn and not like a mass of weeds and moss that it is currently. I clicked for info and have discovered a whole new vocabulary; scarification, sub surface thatch and soil compaction! These guys offer treatments and services. In fact it is on my To Do list to call them up and see what our best option is. In fact I had a quick peek at the list of garden weeds and am happy to announce we have them all! So it will be interesting to see how their treatments react on our patch.
Last up is Best 4 Plants an online company who offer everything to make your garden beautiful. Not only that, what caught my eye was their Making Great Gardens Affordable page as let’s face it we haven’t got a ton of money to pile into our garden so any advice, tips and inside knowledge on how to get ‘the look’ will be truly valuable. I shall be looking to them for all the help I can get to achieve the look I have in my mind. I’d love a Japanese Acer plant but will it work? We’ll let them be the judge.
Mari’s World is up against another ten bloggers in this competition and the prize is a day with leading garden expert Helen Yemm who writes for the Daily Telegraph plus two tickets to the RHS Chelsea Flower show which has been on my Want list for a long long time.
And just in case you’re not familiar with Pinterest yet, there’s a ‘ Gardening board‘ I’ve been putting together this past week in the hope of being selected and to have a couple of ideas to put forward. The pretty photos above are taken from that board. What do you think? Achievable?
