Hi I hope someone can advise
I have a garden with lawn interspersed with flower beds and paths. The total lawn area is probably 80-100m2.
I initially bought a strimmer to try to get it back to turf, and although that worked OK the strimmer was a nightmare, the line kept breaking and not "auto" extending like it should have, so it took hours. I don't need a perfect lawn, just something under control.
The lawn itself is full of protruding what I believe are saplings from a plum tree as it has been wholly uncared for during the last few years. So not smooth at all. Also, it's a steeply sloping garden, on several levels. And the levels aren't level if that makes sense.
I am tempted to go for a strimmer with plastic blades as I won't use the one with line any more. My alternative is a hover mower with metal blades. Any ideas which to go for, and if so any models that would suit me?
