Gardening, you either love it or you hate it. Either way, gardening is an around the year job, from tending to your flowerbeds during the spring months to provide your bulbs with the best chance of blooming; through to de-weeding during the summer.

Fancy relaxing with a cuppa and your feet up while automated appliances work around you keeping your home spick and span? Sound too good to be true?

Today we’re talking robot lawn mowers and their pros and cons.
A regular trim is good for your lawn and healthy for you too. Anyone who’s pushed a heavy lawnmower around on a hot day knows that it’s a sure fire way to get the heart rate up!
