While it would be nice if lawn mower blades stayed sharp for years, requiring little or no maintenance, this outcome is unlikely for hardworking machines.
In researching an article I recently wrote, I came across some interesting information about preventing Japanese beetles in the garden. I thought I might share the advice with you now so you’ll be better prepared to battle them next season.
I spent the morning mowing the lawn. Itâ€™s a beautiful day here, and even riding the mower was a pleasure. I donâ€™t often write about my lawn because I really donâ€™t care that much about it. Iâ€™m not one of those people who think of the lawn as part of the garden. We donâ€™t really do much to it except mow. Donâ€™t get me wrong, I love the look of a lush, green, well-maintained lawn, but I donâ€™t think a person needs to spend time and money to have that. Itâ€™s not worth it to me, I guess.
