A man’s shed needs a good selection of man tools (right next to the fridge that holds the beer). Tools that you can use to do man stuff and take on projects other than your trusty lawn mower and chainsaw that is. Because nothing’s worse than trying to get a project done with the wrong tools for the job. Here’s a good rundown of some indispensable tools for your/his man shed.

This time of year can be a challenging one for West Australian gardeners. Trying to keep the superb look of our gardens while coping with the inevitable water restrictions is a test for even the most skilled of green thumbs.

Sure, riding mowers are fine…for mowing, that is. Or maybe if you want to pull a cute little wagon with it. But when you really need to get some work done on your property, you soon may find out how inadequate a riding mower really is for your needs.

Fire fighting pumps are a real necessity for Perth homes, particularly when summer rolls around. It is quite simply a pump that will supply water at a quicker rate than you could hope to draw by hand, making it very useful for tasks like fighting fires or even filling up a swimming pool. You can even leave it on to do the job by itself if you have it set up in the right position. There are a variety of types of pumps as well as rates of function – you can measure them by looking at their discharge capacity.

A pressure washer isn’t just ‘another tool’ for the collection, it’s one of the most versatile and useful household items. An essential part of any bloke’s shed, pressure washers can make day-to-day life much easier – especially in summer when pollen builds up on your home’s exterior and the greasy film from air pollution seems to cover everything in sight.

As we’re heading into spring, the need for a reliable ride-on mower has become critical for many home-owners in Perth. With so many models to choose from, it can be difficult to select the best mower for your needs. Factors like the size of your lawn, type of terrain, and obstacles in your lawn will greatly impact the decision-making process.

Have you ever found yourself ready to mow your lawn, only to realise that no matter how hard you try, your lawn mower simply won’t start? It happens all the time — especially if it’s a model that you’ve been using for years. After all, your lawn mower has served you all this time, trimming the grass and helping you make your lawn look nothing short of spectacular. Unfortunately, your lawn mower won’t work forever. The thought of replacing it with a new model may sound scary, but there comes a point when finding a new mower is your only option. Here are 5 reasons why your trusty lawn mower needs to be put into retirement.
