Winterizing your gas-powered tools will extend their life and guarantee hassle-free spring start-up. The most important winterizing step is to drain or stabilize the fuel. Gasoline left in the fuel system over the winter will degrade leaving gum deposits and varnish build-up that will plug up the fuel system — the #1 reason mowers, string trimmers, leaf blowers, and chain saws won’t start in the spring.

Select plants that are suitable for your region. Your local nursery should be able to help you choose varieties that will thrive. European varieties do well in the Western United States as they need a long warm growing season. Muscadine and Scuppernong are good choices for hot and humid areas of the Deep South. Other popular choices are Thompson Seedless, Golden Muscat and Reliance. Helpful guidelines for effective echo weed eater attachments. Make sure to choose rootstock that is healthy and not dried out. If you are unable to plant immediately, rootstock can be placed in a bucket of water for one day (longer will promote rotting) or alternatively buried loosely with soil in shallow trenches to prevent drying out. These are temporary solutions only. Grape vines are long-lived lasting for decades or in some cases over a century.

Rent a powerful weed whacker or weed trimmer. Forget using your own personal string trimmer sales from home; a heavy duty weed whacker is your best bet for whacking down tall, thick weeds in a vacant lot. Overgrown grass and weeds tend to have thick, ropey stems that can bind up lawnmowers; tackling the job with a weed trimmer is much easier and faster. If the lot is waist high in grass, we recommend knocking down the overgrowth incrementally. For example, with the first sweep just chop the weeds down to a height of one foot. Do rake up this cut grass, bag it, and let the lot dry out overnight before proceeding.

Aeration and rolling usually happen once a year. Aeration will commonly occur in the fall, but can be beneficial in the spring. A good rolling after a wet spring season of expansion, contraction and squishy footsteps will be best to keep your lawn level and ready for lawn bowling if you wish.

OChoose a smaller gap or protective sleeve. Wrapping around and cutting head tops with gaps on tall grass will slow down the use of weed eaters. Problems can be avoided with the use of a smaller gap around the shaft.

Outdoor Aerobics: Just like indoor aerobics, only the weather is nice. As an added benefit, once you get conditioned for this, you’ll save lots of money on car washes, mowers, trimmers and leaf blowers.

And not to leave out what some consider the most important part of the family, the dog is going to love the new gazebo. A shady place to nap, especially if you are kind enough to give them cushions for the furniture. And if your dog is like mine, he’d like for you to add a ceiling fan, too, please. Now if you have a cat in the family, don’t expect them to get too excited. You could put up a gazebo that was covered in 24k gold, and they would be totally unimpressed.
