How to Maintain the Perfect Lawn

Have you ever noticed that some lawns just have it all? Perfectly-manicured grass, clean lines, and tidy sidewalks—it may seem like something only a professional service can achieve, but when you have the right equipment, creating a great-looking lawn is more attainable than you might think. Want to know more? Read on for our at-home tips to make your lawn the envy of the neighborhood.

Maintain the Perfect Lawn – Keep Your Lawn Mower Blade Sharp

One very important piece of advice we like to reiterate is keeping a sharp blade on your lawn mower. A sharp blade will help you achieve a clean cut, reducing the risk of tearing and damaging grass. For more information on blade sharpening benefits, click here.

Maintain the Perfect Lawn – Use a Line Trimmer for Tight Spaces

If you’re missing patches of grass with your lawn mower due to fences and other landscaping obstacles, consider investing in a line trimmer. A line trimmer will help you clip grass in hard-to-reach areas, so you’re not left with unsightly patches (Click here to browse our inventory of line trimmers).

Maintain the Perfect Lawn – Polish It Up With an Edger

A good edger will help add a professional-looking touch to your lawn in no time. Use an edger along your driveway, patio, or sidewalk for manicured borders that frame your yard perfectly. Edger blade dull? Click here for a replacement.

Maintain the Perfect Lawn – Define Edges with a Hedge Trimmer

If you want to bring something special to your landscape, add a hedge trimmer to your arsenal of outdoor power equipment. A well-balanced hedge trimmer will help you obtain clean lines and perfectly sculpted hedges and shrubs. Need a hedge trimmer? Click here to browse our entire lineup.

Maintain the Perfect Lawn – Clean it up with a Lawn & Leaf Blower

Finally, remember to use a lawn and leaf blower for easy clean-up. A powerful lawn and leaf blower will move leftover grass clippings, leaves, and other debris off of walkways quicker than sweeping, leaving you more time to admire your handiwork.

  1. I would like information on how to change the transmission fluid on my John Deere LX-288 lawn tractor. Specifically, do I need to vent its hydraulic system to complete the filling procedure, etc? What should I be on the lookout for?
