WIN over £500 worth of power tools!

WIN over £500 worth of power tools!

We all love the outdoors at this time of year (weather permitting of course) and right now, we’re encouraging everyone to makeover their garden with us to give you lovely new, spruced up outdoor space that you and family will enjoy making the most of when the sun comes out.

Maybe a good old clean of the patio will really make a difference, in which case Karcher has everything you need to bring out the best with 35 times more power compared to a standard garden hose, and only using half the amount of water – amazing!

A freshly cut lawn is a must when it comes to garden makeovers, and if you have a large space or a real challenge on your hands, McCulloch are the brand to look for with their petrol mowers, strimmers and vacs for getting rid of those fallen leaves.

Or maybe it will take a mow of the lawn and a spot of DIY to really make a difference and create a whole new space – and for this we’d recommend you look no further than DIY favourite, Black & Decker who have everything from strimmers to cordless drills. Think of the changes you could make if you had the right tools to do it!

Of course once the hard labour’s done (it’s not too hard, don’t let us put you off) it’s time to relax on your new garden furniture, enjoying a BBQ and admiring all of your handy work. Bliss!

And to get the ball rolling, our friends at Karcher, Black & Decker and McCulloch have given us a bundle of power tools worth over £500! So whether you want to start, renew or add to your tool kit, just read the important info below then leave us a comment telling us what your dream house and garden makeover would include?

Would there be a freshly cut lawn and the family surrounding a chimenea, or maybe a new fence to give you that privacy you’ve always wanted is all you really want! Whatever it is, let us know and you could win this fab power tool prize!

    An electric forcefield so when next doors children fire the hose over my fence again they will get the shock of their lives 🙂
    Or a cat defence system to stop them c**pping in my garden.
    Or if all else fails, a mini bar in the garden so I can get drunk and forget about all of the above!

    At the moment my garden is lumpy, on a slope & has a small drop with a muddy bit at the bottom of the drop! I would love to lay down some new patio near the house & put down some decking so that the kids have somewhere nice to play & we have somewhere nice to sit down. I would build a small retaining wall against where it drops & a couple of steps & then border the fence with raised beds with pretty flowers. A shed would be lovely to de-clutter the garden too!
