  • How To Create A Yard That Your Whole Family Can Enjoy

    When you have kids, it's easy for your yard to turn into one giant play area. But making your yard kid-friendly doesn't have to mean you're sacrificing aesthetics or giving up the areas of the yard that adults enjoy. Whether your yard is large or small, it's possible to plan for spaces that cater to both adults and kids to create a yard the entire family can enjoy.


    Consider Your Family

    There's no one-size-fits-all approach to designing a family-friendly yard. What works for one family might not work for another. Which means the first question you need to think about is what type of yard your family needs.

    Make a list of the things you and your family want to do in the yard, then think about how to make that happen. For example, if you want to play catch with your kids you'll need a yard design that includes open lawn areas. If you want a show-stopping front yard, then you'll want to put kids' play areas in the backyard. If an elderly adult lives with you or visits often, you'll need comfortable seating and safe paths for them to walk on.

    Define Your Space

    Next, let's think about the type of space you have to work with. In larger yards, you'll have the flexibility to create garden spaces, play areas, outdoor dining and relaxation, open lawn areas, and/or water features. You'll still have to plan the layout carefully, but the extra space allows more freedom in what you want to use the yard for.

    For smaller yards, you'll need to be more conscious of space. Multifunctional areas will be one of your best friends. For example, a paved outdoor eating area provides room for adults to entertain and the pavement gives children a canvas for chalk art. Adults who enjoy gardening can design a space that's fun for kids to explore and includes natural play areas like a small sand pit.

    Elements of Family-Friendly Design

    One thing that all family-friendly yards share is an emphasis on safety. You'll want to design a yard that minimizes the risk of serious injury while still giving kids the freedom to play and explore. This can include hardscape elements, like putting a fence up to keep small children from wandering off, as well as making sure your landscape doesn't include poisonous plants.

    You'll also want to make sure your lawn is planted with a sturdy grass that can stand up to foot traffic from kids playing in the yard. For cool-season lawns, a blend of fescue, Bluegrass, and ryegrass is the sturdiest option. For warm-season lawns, Bermuda grass and zoysia grass are the most traffic-tolerant.

    Think About Maintenance

    When you're making a plan for creating a family-friendly yard, remember you're also going to have to take care of the yard. Many homeowners enjoy working out in the yard, so for them this is good news. But if you want to spend more time playing, relaxing, and entertaining in your yard, then you'll want look into low-maintenance landscaping when you're putting a plan together.

    Whether low-maintenance or not, you'll still need to mow the lawn, trim around play areas, and maintain garden spaces. And for that, you'll need good-quality lawn care equipment. At Richardson Saw, we carry a variety of homeowner lawnmowers, trimmers, and other tools. We'll be happy to answer your questions and help you find exactly what you need to keep your yard looking good.

  • This Is How You Can Tell Whether To Clean Or Replace The Spark Plug In A Small Engine

    Cleaning and replacing your spark plugs is a key part of regular lawn equipment maintenance. The good news is they're also one of the easiest parts to remove and replace. They're pretty inexpensive, and if you learn to do spark plug maintenance yourself you'll also save money that way. Keep reading to learn how to remove a spark plug, figure out whether it should be cleaned or replaced, and then put a spark plug back in properly.


    Removing the Spark Plug

    First, disconnect the spark plug lead. That's the wire that fits over the top of the plug. Next, clean the area around the spark plug. You don't want any debris on the outside around the plug falling into the combustion chamber. Once everything is clean, use a ratchet and spark plug socket to remove the plug from the mower.

    Clean the Plug

    It's hard to tell whether or not the plug should be replaced until you start cleaning it. A wire brush is the best tool to use for this. In a pinch, you can use fine-grain sandpaper. Simply brush over the top of the plug to remove carbon deposits. You can also use spray-on plug cleaner along with the wire brush or sandpaper to help get the plug extra-clean if you're hoping to make it last longer.

    Inspect For Damage

    This is the step where you decide whether it's worth it to keep cleaning the spark plug or whether you need to buy a new one. Take a good look at your spark plug and check these three things:

    • If there are heavy carbon deposits, try scraping them off with a strong knife. When deposits come off, you're good to move on to the next step. If not, you'll need a new spark plug.
    • Are there cracks in the plug? Cracked porcelain or any breaks in the plug mean it should be replaced.
    • Look at the electrode at the top of the spark plug. If it looks burned and black, if it's turning green, or if there is damage to the metal (such as if it looks melted or pitted) then it's time for a new plug.

    If you decide you need a new spark plug you can pick one up at Richardson Saw and Lawnmower. We carry a wide variety of different plugs and we can help you make sure you get the right one for your small engine.

    Check The Gap

    If your spark plug looks good to go, it's time to check the gap. You can technically skip this step, but making sure the gap is right will increase the life of your spark plug and make the engine start better. For this task you'll need a spark plug gauge. A gauge measures the distance between the electrodes at the tip of the spark plug. The correct gap is usually .030 inche, but you should check the specifications for your equipment just to be sure. If the gauge is off, adjust it before putting the plug back in your engine.

    Replace the Plug

    To put the old plug back or install a new plug just reverse the steps you used to take it out. Put the plug back in its place and use a ratchet and spark plug socket to tighten it. Be careful not to over-tighten. Replace the spark plug lead wire and start your engine. Everything should be running good as new!

  • 4 Steps To Keeping Your String-Line Trimmer Clean

    Regular maintenance is one of the most important things you can do to keep your lawn equipment in good shape. String-line trimmers and weed wackers are no exceptions. A large part of this maintenance involves keeping the equipment clean and replacing parts that wear-out. It's not too hard, and it'll pay-off by extending the life of your trimmer.


    1) Turn It Off

    First, you want to make sure the trimmer is turned off and that it's not going to start back up while you're cleaning it. For corded electric trimmers, unplug from the power supply. If you're using a battery-powered trimmer, removed the battery. And for gasoline-powered models, disconnect the spark plug wire. Now you can safely clean the trimmer without it accidentally turning on and injuring you.

    2) Brush Dirt Off

    Any tool that you're using to cut grass and weeds is going to get dirty. String-line trimmers are often covered in dust, dirt, and pieces of the plants you were cutting. You don't have to clean them after every use, but try not to let the debris build up too much. A stiff brush is usually all you need to scrub debris off your trimmer's cutting head and handle. At the end of the season, dip the brush in warm, soapy water to give the trimmer a more thorough cleaning.

    3) Clean Air Filter

    Keeping the air filter clean helps prevent engine damage. You'll want to clean it every 10 hours of use or if you notice dust is starting to build-up on it. If you've been using the trimmer, make sure you give it enough time to cool down before opening the filter cover. Once you've removed the air filter clean it in warm water with a little dish detergent in it. Rinse the filter, then let it dry. Once it's dry put a little motor oil on it, squeeze the filter to distribute the oil and wring-out excess oil, then put it back in the trimmer. If your trimmer has a paper filter instead of one that's made of foam, or the foam filter is torn, you'll have to replace it instead of cleaning it.

    4) Check Spark Plug

    Check the spark plug at least once a season to see if it needs to be cleaned or replaced.  Before you take the spark plug out, brush any debris away from the area around it so dirt won't fall into the combustion chamber. Use a wire brush to clean the spark plug, then inspect it for damage. If the plug has turned black, you find stubborn deposits that won't brush off, see cracked porcelain, or there are burned-away electrodes then it's time to replace the plug. If you don't see any of those problems, you can put the cleaned spark plug back in the trimmer.

    Following these four steps on a regular schedule will prevent damage caused by debris building up on your trimmer. Keeping the trimmer clean means less strain on the engine. It also helps prevent rust in any metal components. And if you ever do need a little extra help with maintenance or you're looking for a new trimmer, come in and see us. We'll be happy to help.

  • Mulch, Bag, or Discharge Grass Clippings – What's Best For My Lawn?

    There are three different things a lawn mower can do with your grass while cutting the lawn. Mower either collect clippings in a bag, mulch grass clippings, or discharge the clippings onto your lawn. Some mowers are designed for just one of those three options, while others can switch between them.

    The choice between mulching, bagging or discharging your grass clippings isn't just a question of what's easiest for you or which looks best on your lawn. It's actually going to affect your grass health as well.


    Mulching: Your All-Around Best Choice

    A mulching mower features specially designed cutting decks and blades that chop your grass clippings into tiny pieces. The blades have curves and bends in them that throw clippings around in the mowing deck so they're cut several times before falling back down on the lawn. Some mulching mowers also have deeper cutting decks to help channel the clippings back over the blades so they're chopped up finely.

    Mulching has several advantages over bagging and discharge. Grass clippings contain nutrients and moisture, so returning them to the lawn instead of bagging them helps nourish your lawn and cuts down on fertilizer and watering costs. That gives you the advantages of composting your grass clippings without the extra work.

    Unlike with a discharge mower, mulching means you won't have unsightly rows of cut grass to rake-out after mowing. Some clumping can occur with mulching mowers. However, it's rarely noticeable if you mow on a regular schedule and only remove the recommended 1/3 of the grass height each mowing.

    Bagging: Advantages In Certain Conditions

    Bagging lawn mowers are popular because they let you collect grass clippings rather than leaving them visible on your lawn. Some homeowners use them to increase curb appeal. But you still have to do something with the clippings.

    Simply throwing grass clippings in the trash wastes nutrients your yard could use and contributes to landfill waste. If you are going to bag healthy grass, it's a good idea to reuse the clippings by composting them. Then you can use the compost on garden beds or to fertilize the lawn.

    The only time you should definitely bag your grass clippings is if there's a disease in your lawn. Mulching diseased grass or using a discharge mower can spread the fungus around your lawn. You should start bagging clippings from diseased areas of the lawn as soon as you notice a problem. And don't compost those clippings – they go in the trash.

    Discharging: Why Some People Prefer It

    For some situations, people prefer mowers that offer a discharge option. In mowers that aren't specifically designed with a deep cutting deck for mulching, using the mulching option can clog up the deck and compromise cutting quality. Side discharge is also best if you have to tackle an overgrown lawn. Overgrown grass blades quickly fill up a bagging mower and they make a mulching mower work harder, which puts a strain on the engine.

    Whichever your preference, Richardson Saw & Lawnmower carries a mower that will work for you. Many of our mowers give you the option to convert between mulching, bagging, and discharge so you can switch depending on your needs. Come visit us to check out the different options available and talk with our equipment experts. We can answer your questions about the different mowers and help you find the best one for your lawn or business.

  • Top 5 Reasons Landscape Professionals Still Like Using Intermediate Walk-Behind Mowers

    With all the improvements in zero-turn mowers, sales of intermediate commercial walk-behinds started dropping several years ago. But even though riding mowers are now more affordable and reliable, many landscape professionals still choose mowers that they need to walk behind. Why?

    Even though the demand for walk-behind mowers isn't as high as it once was, there are several good reasons to use a walk-behind mower. And lawn mower manufacturers recognize this need. The top brands continue putting out new and improved walk-behind models to meet the needs of professionals and homeowners who want a mid-size mower that's maneuverable, safe on hills, and gives them more flexibility.


    Better Control

    Commercial walk-behind mowers are larger than standard homeowner walk-behinds but smaller than most zero-turn models. The mid-size decks give them a good balance of quick-cutting and easy maneuverability that makes them ideal for mowing in places where you need precise cutting. They offer the operator more control when working around landscape beds, trees, retaining walls, parking lot islands, and other challenging mowing situations.

    Safer On Hills

    Walk-behind mowers offer better traction and stability than most riding mowers. It's not safe to use zero-turns on any slope steeper than 15 degrees, and even with lawn tractors there's still a big risk of tipping over. Walk-behinds give you more control on slopes. And if the mower does get away from you, there's much less chance of you being injured.

    More Flexibility

    Using an intermediate walk-behind mower gives you more flexibility when you're cutting. They make it easy for the operator to move around and get obstacles out of the way without climbing on and off the mower. They're also easier to use in small yards. This is a huge advantage if you work with clients in residential areas or gated communities.

    Smaller Footprint

    Because walk-behind mowers are smaller than riding mowers, they won't take up as much room on your equipment trailer. That means you can fit more tools on a single trailer. The smaller footprint also makes it easier to get the mower in and out of tight spaces, such as though gates to get into a client's backyard.

    Comfortable Use

    Some landscapers simply prefer to walk rather than ride. With that in mind, commercial walk-behind mowers are now designed for ergonomics and comfort. They're also self-propelled and offer different speed settings for ease of use. To see the different models for yourself, click here to browse our selection of mid-size walk behinds or stop by our location in Richardson, Texas. We'll be happy to show you our walk-behind mowers and answer any questions you have.

  • Run A Lawnmowing Business? Here's The Equipment You Need To Manage Those Pesky Hills And Slopes

    When you're working in the lawn care industry, it's pretty much guaranteed some of your clients will have hills and slopes. Slopes are notoriously challenging to maintain and the steeper they are the worse it gets. While nothing makes cutting grass on a slope as easy as mowing level ground, having the right tool for the job does give you a huge advantage.


    Riding Mowers For Gentle Slopes

    For slopes that aren't too steep, you can keep using your regular mower as long as you're careful. The best way to check if your zero-turn mower can be used safely on a slope is to try backing the mower up the slope. Start at the base of the slope and put your mower in reverse. If it can go backward up the slope without the wheels slipping you're good to go. Never use a zero-turn mower or lawn tractor on slopes greater than 15 degrees (a 5.4-foot rise over a 20-foot length).

    Even on gentle slopes, it's a good idea to make sure you're always using a mower with rollover protection and a low center of gravity. And never mow on slopes with wet, soft, or slippery ground. Also, familiarize yourself with the slope before you mow it. You don't want to hit a bump in the earth or run into a hole that pushes the mower off-balance.

    Walk-Behinds For Steeper-Slopes

    Walk-behind mowers are the choice for slopes too steep to mow with a riding mower. They're typically easier to control and if they roll they're less likely to injure you. You'll still need to be cautious, though. Remember to work slowly enough that you can maintain control of the mower. And don't mow on wet or slippery ground.

    Whether you're opting for a commercial midsize walk-behind or a smaller model, you'll want to choose one with good balance and low center of gravity. Scag, Toro, and eXmark all offer professional walk-behind mowers that would work well for mowing slopes.

    Options For When You Can't Mow

    When the slope is too steep, rocky, or uneven to mow even with a walk-behind, it's time to explore other options. Brushcutters and string-line trimmers are the best equipment for this type of task. When trimming, it's a good idea to start at the bottom of the slope and work your way up. That lets the cut grass fall downhill so you aren't cutting up grass you already trimmed.

    If you also offer landscaping services, another option you can give your clients is landscaping the slope. Planting groundcovers, bushes, shrubs, and hardy perennials can help cut back on maintenance tasks when the slopes are too steep to mow. They'll also help control erosion if that's an issue.

    Whatever equipment you need to tackle slope maintenance in your business, you can find it at Richardson Saw & Lawnmower. Stop by our location to see your options-first hand and talk with an expert about which of our products work best on slopes. We're always happy to help you find just the right tools you need.

  • How To Time Your Garden Tasks Around The Last Frost Date

    How we time our garden plantings depends on the weather in our area. If you want to give your garden vegetables and flowers the best chance, then it's important to know the last frost date in your local area. Most seed packets give instructions for when to plant based on your frost dates. Plus, frost dates give you a guide for when to start working soil and when it's safe to put cold-sensitive plants outside.


    Find Your Frost Dates

    You can find the frost date for your area by typing “last frost date zip code” into any internet search engine. It'll give you several sites, such as Dave's Garden, where you can plug in your zip code and get the average frost dates at your location.

    At our location in Richardson, Texas, for example, our average frost dates are from November 13 through March 20. Even after March 20, though, there's about a 50% chance of getting a late spring frost. So Dave's Garden also tells us there's only a 10% chance of frost after April 10. That lets us know when to plant more cold-sensitive plants.

    Work Garden Soil

    You can till the garden soil before your last frost date in the spring. In fact, you'll have to if you want to plant cool-weather vegetables like broccoli and cabbage.

    Wait until the soil is dry enough that if you pick up a handful of soil and squeeze it, it crumbles. You'll also need to make sure the ground is not frozen and is free of ice crystals. Remember to work organic soil amendments like compost into your garden soil while tilling.

    Plant Cold-Weather Plants

    Seed packages give you guidelines for when to start putting seeds outside. Calabrese broccoli, for example, should be started indoors 4 to 6 weeks before the last frost date and transplanted into the garden before the last frost. Using Richardson as an example again, that means we'd be starting the seeds between February 6 and 20 and planting them in the garden before March 20.

    There's quite a variety of plants you can put out in the garden before the last frost. Cool-weather vegetables include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, peas, radish, and salad greens. Cool-weather flowers include calendula, dianthus, pansies, and viola.

    Plant Warm-Weather Plants

    Many vegetables and flowers grow best when the weather is warm. They thrive in the heat of late spring and summer. A frost would kill, or at the very least stunt growth on, plants like this. It's important to set them out after the last frost date.

    Plants in this category include tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, squash, and corn. Warm-weather flowers include marigold, inpatients, petunia, geranium, and moss rose. Some of these plants a bit more cold tolerant than others. For example, you can plant squash seeds about a week before your last frost but you should wait until after the last frost to plant corn. Tomatoes and peppers are very sensitive to frost, so wait until after there's a 10% chance of frost rather than the date for 50% chance of frost.

    Good luck with your garden this year! If you need any tools for working your garden – tillers, shovels, trowels, pruners, etc. – come visit us. We carry a full range of Corona hand tools as well as the power equipment you'd need to work your garden soil.

  • Here's How Winter Weather Changes The Way You Use and Maintain A Chainsaw

    Some yard work stops when the weather turns cold. But not wood cutting. Whether you're cutting firewood or trimming broken branches after a winter storm, your chainsaw can see quite a bit of winter use.

    Chainsaws require special maintenance when you're working in cold weather. If the temperature where you live drops below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, you'll need to change some things about how you use and maintain your saw.


    Switch The Shutter

    If your chainsaw has a winter/summer shutter, change it to the winter setting when the temperature is under 40 degrees. This activates the carburetor pre-heater system. Without this system, the carburetor can ice in cold weather. That will make your saw run poorly, and could even lead to major engine failure.

    Use The Right Oil

    Check your owner's manual to see if you need to use a different bar and chain oil for winter cutting. It might recommend using a thinner lubricant that won't slow the chain down in cold weather. Some oils work in all temperatures, but others are designed specifically for warm or cold weather use.

    Keep Fuel Fresh

    If you'll be using your chainsaw frequently, the fuel probably won't have time to spoil. But if you'll be using the saw infrequently you need to make sure the fuel isn't going stale. Stale fuel can gum-up things inside your saw. Make sure you either use fuel that doesn't contain Ethanol or add a fuel stabilizer when you purchase the fuel.

    Watch The Chain

    Temperature fluctuations can affect chain tension. Remember to keep an eye on that and adjust the chain as needed. Also, if you're cutting frozen wood you need to keep in mind that it will dull the chain faster than usual. Stihl suggests “you may want to decrease the saw chain’s filing angle by five degrees. Decreasing the chain’s angle increases cutting performance in frozen woods and decreases the wear to your guide bar and saw chain.”

    Beware Ice and Snow

    If you're cutting when there is ice and snow, there are a few extra things to think about. Make sure that the sprocket cover, anti-vibration system, throttle trigger, and cooling air intake stay free of snow and ice. You'll also need to make sure snow doesn't fall in the tank when you refuel.

    Stay Cautious

    Remember to wear close-fitting clothing and tuck-in the trailing ends of scarves when you're using a chainsaw. You don't want the extra layers you're wearing because of the cold to get caught in the saw. Also, if you're working on ground covered in ice or snow wear boots with good traction so you won't slip. And remember to wear eye and face protection, especially when cutting frozen wood since it's more likely to splinter.

    Keep Up With Maintenance

    If you want your saw to keep cutting well in the cooler weather, you'll need to keep up with regular maintenance as well. Keep the saw clean, sharpen or replace chains as-needed, and replace or clean filters and spark plugs. If you need some extra help with maintenance, bring it in to our technicians. And if you're looking for a new saw, we can help with that, too.

  • How To Choose The Right Generator For Backup Power In Your Home Or Business

    We don't often think about our electricity until it's gone. Flipping on a light switch or grabbing food from the refrigerator is so normal that we barely notice how many things in our homes run on electric power. But when that power goes out you can be sure it catches our attention.

    For most people, a short electrical outage is just an inconvenience. But when you're running a business, or the weather is extremely cold or hot, or the power is out for longer than just a few hours the loss of electricity can become a serious problem. You might lose work because you can't power your equipment, or become ill without heat or air conditioning to regulate the temperature, or have hundreds of dollars worth of food spoil in your freezer.

    A backup generator solves problems like these. And you'll want to start shopping for one before power outages cripple your home or business. Now's the time to decide how much power you'll need and what type of generator you want to power your home or business through the next power outage.


    How Much Power?

    First off, you need to decide how much power you need. Different size generators supply different amounts of power. If you just want to power a few appliances like your refrigerator, sump pump, and a furnace fan then a mid-size generator can work. But if you want to power multiple rooms in your home, you'll need a more powerful generator.

    To calculate the minimum wattage for your generator, make a list of everything you want to power during an outage. Then write down the wattage for each item. This information should be on a sticker inside the door or on the back of each appliance. If you can't find the exact information you'll be able to find estimates online. Add up all the wattage requirements then multiply by 1.5 to cover the extra power appliances pull when they first start up. That total is the minimum wattage you'll want to look for.

    Portable or Standby?

    The two main types of generators are portable and standby. Portable models are typically gasoline powered. They come in a wide range of wattages, from small camping models to generators large enough to power major appliances. You can either run extension cords from them or hook them up to a manual transfer switch that will restore power to your main electrical panel.

    Standby generators typically run on natural gas or propane. Most models are more powerful than portable generators. You hook them up to turn on automatically when there's a power outage so they'll supply replacement power in your home. They're also quite a bit more expensive than portable generators.

    Which Do You Choose?

    Honda generators are among the most reliable on the market. And Honda makes it easy for you to figure out exactly which model to purchase. Just click here to go to the wattage calculator on their website or click here to visit the “Help Me Choose” page. They'll walk you through finding the generator that's the best fit for your backup power needs at home or in a business.

    You can also come visit us at our location in Richardson, Texas. As a Honda Power Choice dealers, we're among the top Honda dealers in the country. We are Honda experts and we're more than happy to lend you that expertise to help you find just the right generator.

  • Winter Lawn Care : Snow Blowers, Chainsaws and Winter Weeds.

    Though many lawn care tasks are over when the weather cools, that doesn't mean all your tools will go into storage. You might still be using a chainsaw, for example, if you heat with wood or have an indoor fireplace you want to keep burning on cozy winter nights. If you're in an area where it snows, snow blowers will see a lot of use to help keep the driveway and side walks clear. In locations where there's very little snow and milder winters, you might be getting lawn equipment out to help take care of winter weeds.

    Winter can also be a good time to take your other lawn equipment in for a yearly tune-up or for service that was neglected during the busier months of the year. You'll get ahead of the spring rush, and be sure that your equipment is in working-order when lawn care tasks become more frequent as the weather warms.


    Snow Blowers

    You many have already been using your blowers for fall clean-up around the yard, but if you have a snowblower that haven't been used since the previous year now's the time to get it tuned-up for winter. Check the spark plug and filter and replace or clean them as needed. Before the first snowfall, change the oil and gas or re-fill the drained fuel tank.

    Protect your blower during the times it's sitting idle this winter by using a fuel stabilizer when you re-fuel. Since blowers are often used sporadically throughout the winter, you might not use-up all the fuel in the tank before it goes stale. If unstabilized fuel is left in equipment longer than 30 days, the ethanol will attract moisture and can cause engine damage.


    Chainsaws used for cutting wood in the winter require extra maintenance. If your chainsaw has a carburetor pre-heater system, switch the winter/summer shutter to “winter” mode once the temperature drops below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, drain the bar and chain oil and replace it with a thinner, winter-grade lubricant.

    When cutting in the winter, keep a close eye out for snow and ice buildup on the chainsaw. The chain brake and sprocket cover will need more frequent cleaning in the winter, and you'll also need to keep the air intake free from snow and frozen sawdust that could block airflow and make the engine overheat. You might also want to keep a spare chain on hand, since frozen wood is hard to cut and dulls saw chains quickly. When sharpening your chains in the winter, decrease the saw chain’s filing angle by five degrees to increase cutting performance and decrease wear and tear on the guide bar and cutting chain.

    Winter Weeds

    In locations where there isn't much snow, winter weeds in the lawn can get out of control. You can keep winter weeds from taking over the yard by trimming them or spot-treating with an herbicide.

    For most lawns, a small sprayer like the Stihl SG10 or Echo MS-221H is good for making precision applications of herbicide directly on the weeds while not killing surrounding grass. If you'll be using your trimmers throughout the winter, remember to add a fuel stabilizer when filling up the gas tank. Just like in snowblowers, the stabilizer will help you avoid problems with fuel going bad because the equipment is used so infrequently in the winter months.
