Take a week off from mowing. Letting clover flower in your lawn helps the bees – and it’s good for the soil too.
With grass getting ready to grow, how’s your lawn mower? Do you know?
Use a catch-bag on your mower to grab the last leaves and grass clippings of the season and create your own perfect pile of free fertilizer.
Now that the mowing season is in full swing, if you didn’t do it before, make sure you give your lawnmower a once-over: change the oil if you need to, and have your blade sharpened or replaced.
This is supposed to be a beautiful weekend for yard work but, be aware, your lawn mower is a potentially hazardous machine.
It may be the last thing on your mind in January, but this is a great time to give your lawn mower a once-over.
