This year is flying past and we are told that the beast from the east was to bring us early snow and frosts. If this is the case, then all the leaves will be down and the big clean-up will be in full force! Leaf collection can be a huge task unless you have the right equipment. Stihl have excellent petrol blowers and blower vacs as well as electric and the very powerful battery blowers. The new AP300 battery replaces the AP180 and gives more running time for all the Battery range of equipment. You must pop in and see for yourself how good they are. Once the leaves are on the lawn the easy way to collect them is to go over the lawn with your rotary mower or garden tractor this will also mulch them so composting is made easy. Composting makes excellent material to enrich the soil and gives the plants an excellent boost to produce wonderful flowers and vegetables next year.
Once this job is done then is the time to book your equipment in for its annual service before it is lost in the back of the garden shed. We can arrange to collect in the local area at no extra charge or if you bring your machines in then a 10% discount will be taken off the service charge. Just phone Mandy on 01764 684 600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your machine in.
We have a new member of staff in the workshop Alison Hunter who is fitting in well and Chris is keeping a watchful eye on her to ensure good continuity for excellent servicing results.
Christmas shopping can be a chore or a delight, but you must remember that the garden is a chore that you can make easier with a few new tools, a new lawnmower or strimmer. Come in and have a browse there are some fantastic ideas to be seen in our extensive showroom.
For many people log burning stoves are the “in thing”. We can help if you have a source of timber as we have a good range of chainsaws in stock either petrol, electric or battery. If you use a chainsaw it is very important to have proper safety gear before you start to use one, we can advise you what you should buy. We might not have your size in stock but it can be easily ordered and in most cases be here in a few days.
We always have stocks of Calor gas for your top up heating. Remember though we will be closed for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year.
We wish all our customers a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
