Garden is v overgrown and messy - weeds in between paving slabs, growing out from under hedge, etc, etc. Basically every nook and cranny had something growing out of it. It's like day of the triffids...(my back garden backs onto woodland for info).
Anyway I'd like to do a general basic tidy up and was wondering what tool(s) to get. Would a strimmer type thing be ok to go over the paved bit and chop down the weeds? I'm an absolute beginner but just want to get the garden tidied up a bit before winter.
