It’s only in the last few years that we have had a garden to maintain as well as a house and of course, the children. I hold my hands up and admit that I’m not very green-fingered, which is a good thing really as I tend to come out in a rash whenever I hand freshly cut grass or hedges etc. Luckily What The Dad Said has taken to maintain the garden in his stride.

With the children often asking to help him as he prepares to ensure that the patio is weed-free, as well as the lawn plus ensuring that the hedges are trimmed. The majority of the gardening tasks are ones that they can get involved with. However, when it comes to mowing the lawn that is an adult-only task – that was until Flymo contacted us to see if we would like to test drive a new lawnmower – plus one for Piglet too!

Easy to assemble with instructions included allowing you to quickly unbox and cut your lawn. The spacing blocks included allowing you to adjust the cutting length. This is relatively easy to complete with the spanner included. Light and easy to use, it doesn’t come with a grass collection system. So you will need to go back over your lawn with a rake to collect the grass cuttings.
