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!

    The magnificent prize would enable me to spruce up my garden and patio a lot quicker and more efficiently than with the equipment I currently have at my disposal. I’m now 66 and it seems sometimes that my mower etc. is just as old.

    I would love some decking in my garden,or some fencing so I could grow vegetables without my puppy digging everything up.

    I love my house especially the views from the back. But they’re even better from upstairs & we get hit by some awful weather at times. So what I would love to do is build a first floor conservatory to enjoy the views all year while protected from the weather 🙂
