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!

    I would love new windows and a reliable heating system in my dream make over, then all the lovely cosmetic things like carpets, kitchen, bathroom…we need a complete overhaul 🙂

  2. Posted by Tracy Palmer on June 5, 2013

    I would love some bright flowers in my garden and some toys for my daughter to play with, a BBQ for my hubby to play with and a table and chairs (with wine) for me to sit and chill with 🙂 x

  3. Posted by Catherine Burrows on June 5, 2013

    My perfect garden would include a space for me to have timeout from the busy world. Water running near by. The sound of birds under the trees. A patio area big enough for the family to enjoy the space and to have meals together in the garden.

  4. Posted by Michelle Weston on June 5, 2013

    I would love to pop a conservatory on the back of my house, leading out to the patio and garden which would obviously look fabulous thanks to these tools!

  5. Posted by Karl C on June 5, 2013

    Got a baby on the way. So I would love to give the baby a nice nursery. Would also like the garden fence doing as the dog keeps escaping 🙁

  6. Posted by karen d on June 5, 2013

    I’d love a new kitchen and patio doors leading onto a decked area please!

  7. Posted by Anna Stickland on June 5, 2013

    I would re-la my patio. Its just all cracked concrete and is crying out for traditional welsh slate slabs to be put back in.

  8. Posted by R Eadie on June 5, 2013

    My power tools are on their last legs,these would be terrific replacements.

  9. Posted by Ferghal C on June 5, 2013

    Demolition, Re-building & Landscaping would be a good start 😉

  10. Posted by Karen Kerner on June 5, 2013

    My dream house and garden makeover would consist of an extension to the kitchen, with a peaked roof, a new utility room and full shower room, and the garden transformed with a small stream ending in a pond, a wild flower garden and a lower section for vegetables and fruit trees.

  11. Posted by Jess Mandeville on June 5, 2013

    I’d have a decent green lawn (unlike the patchy dead grass I have now!) and some plants.

  12. Posted by Lynda Avery on June 5, 2013

    My garden makeover would include decking and raised beds (I am disabled) soil for the beds and a small water feature as I love the sound of water.

  13. Posted by Jasmine Taylor on June 5, 2013

    I would love to redo our kitchen, we didnt have the money or the skills to do it when we first moved in but wityh some power tools and a little help from my dad and dad in law and we could be a new kitchen richer!!

  14. Posted by Joanna Lovelock on June 5, 2013

    Our house and garden have both been a little neglected this year while we’ve been getting married and its in desperate need, at the moment the grass is knee high and it would be amazing to be able to create a relaxing space for us to enjoy the sun and grow some vegetables. We’d also like to create some more usable space in the house in preparation for starting a family!

  15. Posted by David Dawson on June 5, 2013

    Massive pond with Koi carp

  18. Posted by Jeremy Andrews on June 5, 2013

    I would love to have a water feature, maybe a small pond or a stream.

  19. Posted by Alastair Crombie on June 5, 2013

    I would love to have some nice decking to sit upon and look out onto a lovely garden. Unfortunately all my power/garden tools keep failing me. So to have some good and reliable tools would help me on my way to realising a dream makeover.

  20. Posted by Ryan Roberts on June 5, 2013

    Anything would be better than our current garden. Finally moved in to our first home with our baby daughter and the back garden was left in a state. It’s took us several weeks just to clean up the amount of scrap the previous occupier left behind. The garden itself is bumpy and patchy, it looks like hills. We can’t even use a lawnmower on it because of all the bumps so it has to be strimmed and even then it looks terrible. It needs rotivating, fencing etc. Sigh!

  21. Posted by Jodie B on June 5, 2013

    My dream garden makeover would need one of our walls re-built, maybe a little patio area and some really cool garden furniture.

  22. Posted by Hannah on June 5, 2013

    I would love to mow a maze on the grass in our garden for the kids to run around in!

  23. Posted by dannii Williams on June 5, 2013

    LOADS of storage for all the toys in both the house and garden that seem to be taking over the world!

  24. Posted by Wendy Lewis on June 5, 2013

    Large alfresco table to entertain, flowers and borders to amaze, a bowling green lawn to enjoy and tools to help us to maintain.

  25. Posted by Peter Eldridge on June 5, 2013

    My makeover would include a home cinema room with state of the art technology and the comfiest seats available, the garden would include a sauna, a swimming pool and a hot tub.

  26. Posted by Paul Hodgson on June 5, 2013

    Desperately need some new garden furniture – tools to help make them, ‘wood’ be great!

  27. Posted by DONNA OCONNOR on June 5, 2013

    I’d love to redesign the front garden, including a driveway which doesn’t take over but allows us to park off the road, lovely, interesting paving for the drive and path, and raised flowerbeds with beautiful planting

  30. Posted by matthew collins on June 5, 2013

    a level garden would be great

  31. Posted by steve ashmore on June 5, 2013

  32. Posted by Victoria Entwistle on June 5, 2013

    To be honest our house is pretty much finished inside (for now at least!) but we desperately need new guttering & fascias outside and a new garden shed as the roof blew off ours last winter.

  33. Posted by lisa anderson on June 5, 2013

    I’d love new carpets!

  34. Posted by emma cowling on June 5, 2013

  36. Posted by Victoria Rea on June 5, 2013

    It would include a beautiful finished house and garden. We have been living in a building site for years and it would turn it into a home.

  37. Posted by kuli on June 5, 2013

    We moved into our house 4 years ago and could not wait to improve the house and garden…but both my husband and I got made redundant and I became ill. This would be wonderful.

  38. Posted by Robert Stevenson on June 5, 2013

    A magnolia tree in the middle of a lush lawn would remind me of a carefree 70s childhood, and my much missed parents…

  39. Posted by Samantha Fernley on June 5, 2013

    I would love an extension into our side return so that the back of the house could have full width patio doors leading onto the decking are. Would make our house a lot brighter.

    a lovely mahogany coloured conservatory so I could enjoy the sun.

  44. Posted by Eliza Wilder on June 5, 2013

    A garden that I would be happy to use as an outdoor room in summer, with swing, and seating so I could lie and feel a gentle summer breeze against my face. In my house I would love a new kitchen and a bathroom with an old fashioned bath so I could have long pampering sessions.

  45. Posted by peter barnes on June 5, 2013

    Have very recently moved into a very old fashioned house that requires a lot of tlc to get it back to good standard, this wonderfull prize would make that so much easier.

  46. Posted by Rachel Craig on June 5, 2013

    My Dream House and Garden makeover would include :-
    Patio to enjoy relaxing and eating al fresco in the summer. A landscaped garden with a variety of plants and trees, which would be beautiful all year round. So that I could enjoy the views from windows in the winter:- a Winter Wonderland.

  47. Posted by Diana Croos on June 5, 2013

    warm carpets and lovely wallpapers

  48. Posted by simon emery on June 5, 2013
