I review these products during tasks I personally carry out within my garden on a regular basis. Using the right product or tool for the job makes the difference of doing it the easy way or the hard way, so I really value a product which can make my life easier.

I am hoping that garden related companies will send me ‘products’ to test and evaluate. However I must stress that I will not be anything but fair and make no promises to these companies other than to tell the truth. Many of the products here are what I have already purchased for my own gardening use and are happy with.

You may ask, what are your qualifications? Well Judy and I opened our garden through the ‘Australia's Open Gardens’ for
10 years. We now open to support a specific charity. We won Gardening Australia’s 2009 ‘Golden Trowel’, have appeared on the ‘Garden Guru’s and ‘Gardening Australia’ twice and on various other television shows. We give presentations to garden clubs on Sub tropical gardening and open our garden for bus tours. What is more important is that we have learnt from our gardening mistakes.

Best Gutter Guard


You want a gutter guard that will last, more than a few months, of course you do.
There’s no sense in wasting good money on a bad product.
Well I can honestly say to you in all sincerity DO NOT purchase the Hills product, its absolute rubbish.
I bought about 40 (six packs) metres in January 2012 and by July that year had to take them all out as they had cracked and gone brittle.
They claim the product is UV treated, I think that’s a joke.
I took them back to where I had bought them (STRATCO at Capalaba) they were just not interested, so I left them there with instructions that I wanted something done.
I went back a couple of months later and nothing had been done and there was still the same level of disinterest.
I then informed Hills about their product and what I had done.
Three emails later of complaint and still nothing done and not even a reply to my emails.
So I suppose this review is my revenge for wasting my money on a rubbish product, very bad service by both Hills and STRATCO.
I hope they never sell any more.
