It will trim branches, cut firewood, cut limbs, and is ideal to cut in corners and around fences. Details: Priced at $49.95 visit www.anaconda.com.au or call 1300 669 137. Outdoor attention Areas such as fences and outdoor furniture could do with some attention to protect them from the weather.

Be sure to use good quality brushes for a professional finish. The eucalyptus way Stains, grease, oil and grass marks are easy to remove from carpets and other areas with Bosisto's Eucalyptus Oil and Spray.

Too precious to waste As we are in the midst of National Water Week, using water wisely makes good environmental and economic sense. Households consume about 70 per cent of Sydney's water. About two-thirds of this water is used indoors. Sydney Waters WaterFix program can help you use water more efficiently, saving upwards of $55 a year in water and energy bills. More than 468,000 homes have taken up the offer so far. WaterFix plumbers visit the home to install a water-efficient showerhead and flow regulators on taps. They will also adjust suitable single-flush toilets and fix minor indoor leaks. The $22 basic service can save the average household around 21,000 litres of water a year. Another way Sydney Water can help you save water indoors is with a free do- it-yourself water-saving kit. The kits contain flow regulators for taps and showers that reduce the flow of water, which means less water is wasted. There are easy-to- follow instructions and can reduce the average households water and energy bills by about $50 a year. To book a service call 1800 995 886 or visit www.sydneywater.com.au phone bring the outdoors in extend out extend up showroom: www.classichomeimprovements.com.au
