If you haven’t started already, then you’ll no doubt at least be thinking of getting your garden in tip top shape for Summer. The Bank Holiday weekend offers the perfect time to get out and do all those jobs to get your garden ready (fingers crossed for sunshine!)

This Ryobi grass trimmer will help make it so easy to get your garden looking great with an ergonomic design and as it’s so lightweight with a lithium-ion battery with IntelliCell technology, you can use it for even longer.


And once you’ve tidied up, you can relax and enjoy it by sitting out with a book and a coffee while you watch the kids play. Investing in a couple of sun loungers for when we get nice weather is the perfect way to enjoy your garden.




For more details of what you can get with up to 50% off selected garden furniture - as well as garden and DIY tools - visit the Very website!
