Tackle Lawn Care Maintenance with Husqvarna + Win a 3- Piece Husqvarna Garden Kit Worth $50!

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.

  1. 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. If they find big problems, it may be an opportunity to really tune it up and buy new!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

*About the Husqvarna HU800AWD

The new Husqvarna HU800AWD features unique All-Wheel Drive technology. Designed for uneven terrain and the toughest mowing conditions, the sleek yet rugged HU800AWD features a heavy-duty steel deck and a powerful Honda® GCV 190 engine. Complementing its All-Wheel Drive feature, the HU800AWD has wheels with an aggressive tread pattern, which provides additional traction and maneuverability.

Like the complete line of Husqvarna walk mowers, the All-Wheel Drive mower features:

  • 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

The Husqvarna All-Wheel Drive walk mower is available exclusively at Lowe’s and authorized Husqvarna dealers nationwide for USD $499.95. To learn more, join the conversation by “liking” Husqvarna on Facebook and by following Husqvarna on Twitter.

    My spring cleaning so far has involved cleaning all cupboards and closets. Washing walls, weeding the flower beds and trimming the trees & bushes. I have also cleaned windows and painted the kitchen and dining room.

    All of my Spring Cleaning is done (thankfully!). I did a deep clean of my whole house and organized all of our closets. It took me about 3 weeks to get it all done (I’m a perfectionist) but I did it! lol I’d love to win this for my MIL, she asked me to help her with her garden this summer.

    We’re actually moving this summer so the whole house is getting deep cleaned and everything packed. Could definitely use this for the yard work that needs to be done.
