Lawns are an American institution. Many of us are proud of our lawns and enjoy caring for them. Others put in the time grudgingly. They would prefer to be doing other things, but if you don’t mow the lawn, you’ll end up with a pasture in your front yard.
Having the right tools for the job can make it more of a joy and less of a chore. Mowing, trimming, fertilizing, watering—all can take less time and be more enjoyable if you invest in the right equipment and take care of it so it works the way it’s supposed to.
This section tells you about most of the tools involved in good lawn care, what to look for when you’re buying a new piece of equipment, and how to maintain it so you get your money’s worth.
