Looking to buy a new strimmer? Whether your current one is soon to pack up on you, or perhaps you are new grass owners (exciting stuff, eh?), investing in a good model – perhaps the best strimmer around – is a smart idea. It'll last you years, especially considering how you don't need to use it all year. For those who don't know: strimmers are used to finish off your garden, after lawn mowing, to tidy up the edges of your grass and get to hard-to-tackle areas that a lawnmower otherwise can't get reach. They are, due to their slim size, easy to store, while inexpensive models tend to be corded but come with a long wire so as to reach your entire garden.
Today, when scrolling through Amazon, we spotted the Flymo Contour 500E Electric Grass Trimmer and Edger on sale. This strimmer (that can double as an edger) is now only £49.95, down from £59.99. Not only is it a great buy if you have a small to medium sized back garden to maintain, but it's clearly a bargain and this price includes free delivery. It even comes with a plant guard to protect your trees and bushes – should you not be an expert strimmer already, of course – as well as a unique wheel for easy edging around decking and patios. You can adjust the handle to the user's height, so no matter if you're tall or short, you can use this strimmer comfortably. No more excuses for anyone to miss doing this chore. It also boasts a soft-grip handle so that you have total control, and it has a double line feed for fast use. Less time spent maintaining your garden means more time to spend chilling on a sun lounger on your lovely cut grass.
