Hints & Tips
Well, it’s all kicking off.
Not the usual Friday night melee at the local but something far more sedate, the growth in the garden.
By now you should have given the lawn a couple of trims at least with a tighter cutting height each time you get the mower out, but don’t be tempted to a really short cut just yet.
With little rain over much of the country the grass is best left a little longer than you would in mid summer.
And there’s still the possibility of a sharp frost to hold back growth and knock back Spring growth.
But there are hosts of jobs to be done and we have the tools to make them easier – our gardening superstars.
Have a look here at our selection and you will see what we mean.
For instance, if you’re after a lawn tractor, this one could well fit the bill.
Engineered in Germany, the Al-Ko T16-92HD Special Edition Lawn Tractor can tackle areas up to 6000m2 and is super reliable with a twin cylinder Briggs & Stratton engine.
Although it is dry at the moment, we know this won’t last and this tractor is great in wet weather with a special blade to give powerful air currents undfer the cutter deck to assist with collection of the clippings.
It has a 220-litre grass box emptied from the driver’s seat and hydrostatic transmission so it drives much like an automatic car
Six cutting heights and a cutting width of 92cm make this a versatile tractor and you even get a free garden trailer worth £199 as a special gift from us.
When you’ve finished work, just attach a garden hose to the cutting deck to clean it out.
It costs £2299, £400 off the recommended price and is delivered free within two to three working days or extra fast at weekends for a small extra fee.
And you can buy it on finance as well.
It arrives ready to use and has a five-year warranty.
Areas of rougher ground often get their first trim at the time of year and the machine, and here’s a great brushcutter from our list of superstars.
The Einhell GH-BC Petrol Brushcutter with a free safety kit can be used either as a brushcutter – it has a 23cm steel cutting blade – or as a trimmer for lawn edges with it trimming head with a nylon line.
The two heads are easy to change and the trimming head lets you spool out more line by simply bumping the head on the ground.
Powering it along is a 25cc engine with a manual fuel pump and electronic ignition to ensure it starts easily.

The free kit includes a safety helmet with ear and face guard worth £25, gloves worth £10, fuel mixing bottle worth £5.95 and 130 metres of spare strimming line.
It costs £149.95, £50 off the recommended price, has a two-year warranty and is delivered free the next working day.
Needless to say our super stars features excellent mowers from the world’s leading makers but have a look at this is you have a large area of rough ground to manage.
The MD Tondu Wheeled Trimmer Mower has thick nylon line to cut down the toughest weeds like dock and nettles and is very easy to push along.
And with the trimming line at the front of the machine on a flat nose it can go under hedges garden seats, low branches and can also be sued to cut banks and roadside verges where mowers of tractors would be too unwieldy.
A 196cc engine powers the strimming line and it has a working width of 56cm. You can also adjust the cutting height from 35m to 70mm.
This great little machine has proved popular with customers for some years and you can see what they think by clicking here.
The machine costs £299, £100 less than the recommended price and has a two year warranty and free next working day delivery. It comes with five sets of line and 10 extra sets can be bought for £20.
