As I've mentioned before, we just bought a house two months ago and we've just been organizing and cleaning since we moved in. This house sits in over an acre of land with a lot flowering plants, bushes and trees. We've hired our previous lawn maintenance company to do most of the mowing, but my husband and I still has to do a lot of the cleaning/trimming bushes, getting rid of old, dead plants and maintaining the yard in general by ourselves.
Speaking of lawn care, Husqvarna has these valuable tips to help you tackle lawn care maintenance ... just in time for Spring cleaning season! These are great tips if you mow your own yard! :)
- Tune-Up Time. Your equipment needs to be ready when you are, and spring is a perfect time to make sure everything checks out. Visit a qualified servicing dealer to tune-up your mower, trimmer or leaf blower and spot potential problems.
- Get Equipped. It’s important to have the right tools for the task at hand. Husqvarna’s HU800AWD, a new walk-behind mower with unique All-Wheel Drive technology, is engineered for uneven terrain and even the toughest mowing conditions.
- Easy on the Gas. Only buy enough to last 30 days, and keep it in an airtight container. Otherwise, exposure to air – and moisture – can damage or limit the effectiveness of the engine.
- Get Movin! Did you know walking behind your push mower can burn up to 360 calories per hour? Getting out in your yard is one of the easiest ways to feel good and get fit.
- 3-year warranty
- Side guard and grass comb, to improve edging performance
- Large, dust-blocking bag
- Premium, comfort-grip control bail to reduce operator fatigue
- Variable drive speed
- Water hose connector for easy deck cleaning
