Winter is upon us. Yet, the cooler months shouldn’t mean it’s time to forget the garden.While there is plenty to reap from the winter garden, it is also a time to sow the seeds for a great spring and summer. Here are a few tips for inspiration and motivation through the colder, wetter months.

Don’t let limited space limit your gardening possibilities. In fact, small space can be just the inspiration you need to try out some creative, and beautiful gardening ideas.

If you want to get to know someone, check out their front garden. Seriously! For better or worse, a front garden can say a lot about the family living in the house behind it. It’s more than just a few flowers for pedestrians to muse over on the way down the street. The front garden is even more than just the most visible feature of your home. It can tell a guest how they can expect to be treated; is it warm and welcoming, or barren and pretty much munted?

If you live in Perth, you’re no stranger to sunshine and probably try to get outside as often as you can. But the great outdoors isn’t so great if you have to stare at those rough edges around your home every day. So here are a few simple (and mostly free) ways you can give lawn and garden edges a creative makeover.

Western Australia has an exceptionally dry climate, making water management a primary factor in landscape design. Fortunately, the region boasts a large range of unique, visually appealing native plants that are very easy to grow. These days, garden trends favour more compact and shade tolerant varieties, since modern Perth gardens are typically smaller.

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.

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. We felt this name change would better encompass who we are as a company as our range of products has grown from your everyday lawn and backyard equipment to commercial and industrial power equipment. In 2012 we established the Perth Stihl Shop in Cockburn Central to increase our range as a Stihl specialist in Western Australia & make our services and products more accessible and convenient to our customers.
