If money wasn't a problem..

What would you treat yourself to for the garden?

A Conservatory?
A Semi-mature Oak?
New greenhouse
John Deer tractor mower?

Let us know......

I would love to get a waterproof mjsic system with surround sound fitted throughout the garden. I would also love a heated swimming pool, with very large water slide.

In fact did you ever see the pool in the Osbournes tv show back garden, with the big slide? - that would be mines!!!!!

I have seen that robo-mower alright in a few gardens. After cutting it goes back into its docking station to recharge. I'm sure it has other downsides besides its price, possibly getting nicked by kids trick or treating at halloween.

Felco 800 electric handpruners that have the waist pack with battery.

About $1600 to $2500 USA currency. Not sure about pounds.

Seen them?

Just Google Felco model 800 to find a supplier.

Very Happy

Louth county council wouldn't let you do that........ they can't tell the wood from the trees or their a**e from their elbow!!!


For the garden......... a semi underground, built into a hill, room with an underground tunnel linking to the house.

Louth county council will hardly let me build this either.

Oh I think a hot tub, and then after a hard day's slog in the garden, to soak my weary bones would be heaven!
