This resulted in a wider range of products that could be sourced for larger projects more easily which in turn speeded up the process when completing projects on a wider scale.
They work with a number of suppliers worldwide and they have over 230 stores nationwide as well as a customer support centre based in Watford.

Wickes Community Support Programmes
One thing that Wickes have worked well on is supporting Community based projects, initiatives and programmes which helps to give something back into various community areas.

In addition to this, they supported both the Macclesfield Princes Trust and the Grow project for supporting gardeners which in turn is a great way to build trust and a relationship with the local and wider communities.

Wickes Lawnmowers – Great Value Picks
1, Bosch Rotak 36R 1350W Corded Lawnmower
The first great value popular electric lawnmower on sale with Wickes would have to be the Bosch Rotak 36R 1350W Corded Lawnmower which has a lightweight design at only 12kg and a cutting width of 36cm. The length of the cable is 10m long so it is only suitable for small urban type gardens. Some of the things you will like are the Grass combs for the edges, the Powerdrive motor for consistent reliable performance and the decent sized grass box that has a collection capacity of 40 litres.
This Bosch lawnmower comes with the comfortable Ergoflex handles to help manoeuvrability around corners and flowerbeds in particular and it has plenty of mowing height options that range from 2cm up to 7cm. They are a trusted brand in the industry and while they can cost slightly more, they are worth every penny in our opinion.
Price Guide: £100 - £150
2, Flymo Speedi-Mo 36C 1500W Corded Lawnmower
Our second great value option especially if you are seeking a low price is the Flymo Speedi-Mo 360C 1500W Lawnmower with offers a 36cm (14 inches) cutting width, a grass collection bag with a capacity of 40 litres and a reliable 1500W motor built in. The model code to choose is FSM360C and you get a choice of 5 different mowing heights that range from 2.5cm up to 6.5cm.
One big attraction here is the fact that the handles can be folded down easily after use for compact storage in your shed. In addition, the cable is 10m long so it is designed for urban type small gardens, the weight is only 11.5kg so carrying it around is no problem whatsoever and it comes designed with a nice carry handle on the top of the frame
Price Guide: £120 - £170
3, Einhell 18/33 Cordless Lawnmower GE-CM
For a great value cordless battery electric lawnmower, the model we felt offers the best value is the Einhell 18/33 Cordless Lawnmower GE-CM and it is suited for people looking for value and the lowest possible price. This lawnmower was on sale for less than £200 when seen at the time of our review and it works well on lawn sizes up to 200m2 maximum.
It’s a smaller framed and lightweight lawnmower suited for small gardens and lighter duty work so you will need to mow more regularly to keep the grass under control. Mowing long thicker grasses with a lawnmower like this will be difficult so it would be better to frequently mow the grass so that it doesn’t get out of control. It includes an 18V 4Ah battery, a charger, the 30L grass box and the mowing width is narrower at 13 inches or 33cm.
Price Guide: £150 to £200
