Homebase this weekend

Never had reason to post in this section, never done anything green fingerd before today. Anyway reason for post, the garden was in a right state and needed ripping up ao that I could start with a blank canvas. I have no gardening equipment what so ever and a trip to homebase was in order.

Needed a strimmer as it was the only thing I could think of that would get through the grass, weeds etc I ended up with a Black & Decker 350w strimmer was £49.99, reduced to £29.99 then reduced to £27.99 and this weekend they have 20% off so I payed £22.39.

Going back tomorrow to get spade, rake, lawn feed and seeds and some sort of boarder so the lawn and flower beds dont mix.

This maybe of no use but I thought that rather than posting rubbish in the Arms I would actually have a crack at doing something MSE :D
