    Ive moved into my new home that come with a 90ft garden. Problem is the little old lady (104) has done nothing to it in years so it looks a bit like a forest at the moment. Its a mixture off weeds and some other stuff that has grown about 10ft high and covered in thorns, it really is that bad. I phoned up a guy from hss hire and he recommended a brushcutter. Has anyone had any experiance with one off these?.
    If not is there any other recommendation to cut this stuff down?

    Thanks

    brushcutter is ok if brush is up to 1/2" in dia.
    Over that up to around 1" you might look at a tree limber, both can be rented at you local tool rental outlet.
    Don'T forget the gloves and glasses.
