Here in Australia, people take their Christmas decorations seriously. Not just for their Christmas trees and the front of their homes, but also their backyards. If you’re planning an outdoor Christmas lunch with all the family in the backyard then it simply makes sense to dress up the space for this very special occasion.

The “Manly Man” concept is something most of us know about. Sure, it’s definitely a stereotype to some effect. However, you also probably have someone in your life who fits the bill of the manly man in their own personality.

The start of the warmer weather gives us the chance to take advantage of the Perth sun by getting out into the garden. We’ve all been waiting for this to carry out the plans for our backyard that were hatched during the colder months. What to plant, where to dig, where to put the flower or vegetable beds.

The weather is warming, thank goodness! Is it just us is the Perth winter getting colder every year? Spring is here – so that can only mean one thing. Time to dust off those gardening gloves and get back outside!

Whether it’s the kids’ guinea pigs eating that patch of lawn until it’s bare, or the dog’s urine killing the grass, we understand your frustration when your pets damage your beloved backyard. You want an outside area where you can sit back and relax, with something cold to drink in your hand, without having to break your back repairing damage. Is that really too much to ask? Take a look at our tips on how to stop pets from causing outdoor damage without having to spend a fortune or go to a whole lot of trouble.

You’ve probably heard that it’s best to mow grass when it’s dry. Wet grass can hurt your lawn mower and dull its blades. However, sometimes you have to mow grass when it’s wet. If it has been raining for days and your wife is tired of you “putting it off,” here are some methods you can use to cut your wet grass with the least amount of damage to your equipment.

We don’t know about you guys, but here at Beacon Equipment we love perusing blogs for inspiration. Whether we’re about to undertake our next DIY backyard task or a home reno, it’s great to have so many free resources full of tips and advice at our finger tips. Being based in Perth and being a WA family owned and operated outdoor tool business, we wanted to give a shout out to some of our favourite Perth bloggers who keep us entertained and motivated around the home and garden.

There’s two major priorities to consider when the Mrs asks you to get the lawns sorted. And let’s face it, she’s been pestering you for weeks now so you want to get this right! But first – the job has to be done properly (or you’ll be in the dog box for the next month) and the second, you want to enjoy it (better yet, you want to LOVE it).

Before you get to work cutting up trees, pruning, and harvesting your firewood this season, don’t forget to give your safety equipment a good once-over. By way of reminding you about what you need, the following is a list of the absolute essentials. If you are unsure if your PPE (personal protective equipment) is up to standard, check out the Safe Work Australia website, and do not begin until you are confident that you have all you need to keep yourself safe when using your chainsaw.

When it comes to garden tools, you want power, efficiency, economy, and you want to look cool – even when the temperature rises! Of course, it is important to have a neat, tidy, safe backyard or garden, but it can also be important that you impress those looking on, or at least, look as though you know what you are doing.

Family Owned and Run – Our Business Strength

Beacon Equipment is proud to be a West Australian family owned and run business. Our story began in 1992 when Michael and Jan Beacon bought Mowfix Mower and Chainsaw Centre in Canning Vale. Our passion has always been outdoor equipment from stocking the latest chainsaws to ride-on mowers, generators, pressure cleaners and of course lawn mowers in Perth. Over the following 17 years after purchasing the outdoor power equipment company, the expert Mowfix team earned prestigious recognition of being a nationally recognized John Deere and Stihl dealer of the year in Perth. We pride ourselves on our extensive range of products we carry, backed by our fully qualified sales and service team. In 2011 we changed our name to Beacon Equipment as you know us today.
