    Hello everyone. I have been doing lawn care by myself for one summer now. This is going to be my second summer in lawn cutting. So far, I have done all of my advertising on Kijiji, since it is popular here in Ontario Canada. I typically charge $30-$35 for an average size house. The problem I am...
  2. Lawn Mowing Equipment
    I'm retiring my rider! What considerations should I make with the Bradley WB and stand-up? If i ever buy a house with a sloped yard in the future will the stand-on perform like a WB if I were to flip up the tray? I'd love some first-hand experience info of either mower from you guys. I do...

    We live in Middle Tennessee and have acreage. Most of what gets mowed is extremely slopped. My husband, the mower, (I weed eat) had shoulder surgery and cannot mow this summer. We have an ancient Troy Bilt riding lawnmower that I used a couple of weeks ago. The best I can tell is it has no...

    Hey there! I'm a determined wife whose yard is not up to par and I'm hoping you all can help! We are on a little over two acres in Tampa, FL. Lot was covered in what I assume is Bahia before we built two years ago and had done a decent job of self maintenance before we purchased it. During the...

    I know there has been a discussion of if there is a left handed backpack blower on the market and the answer was no. I’m thinking of investing in a start up company that will be selling left handed backpack blowers and I wanted to see if anyone thought it would be a good investment or if...

    Hello All, I've been renovating my house for the last few years and I'm planning on finishing this winter and hopefully putting it on the market during the spring/summer. I have a lot of oak trees in my yard, which is great for shade but sucks come fall time. Most of my Saturdays are spent...
  8. Pesticide & Herbicide Application
    I am pretty positive I have either quackgrass or nutsedge growing in my yard? How can I tell the difference? How do I control and kill or the other or both?? Is there a herbicide that can tackle both or is it two separate herbicides? Do I need to take a picture of what I am dealing with??

    Hello all, I'm merely a homeowner shooting for something nice that will last me a while. I'm in central Arkansas, and near quite a few different dealers (about 15 minutes to each). Budget before any taxes, looking in the $7000 - $9000 range. Own around 10 acres of property, but only need to mow...
  10. Network: South
    Hey folks! I signed up because I'm getting desperate. I bought some property in north/central Florida between Gainesville and Jacksonville, have moved in, fenced in a portion of the backyard for my two miniature schnauzers, but it's mostly dust. I've attached some pictures of my lawn as well as...

    Well after reading all the threads and different review sites and pretty much going in to information overload. I pulled the trigger and bought a 16 Spartan RT. Mowed first time today in 12-14 in pasture mix that was still fairly wet in some areas. To say that I am pleased with the machine is...

    I'm looking to purchase a commercial mower for my hubby to use on our ~0.5 acre yard that has a decent hill in the back (no picture or measurement available). Online I've found a Exmark Metro 32" with a Kawasaki 12.5 HP motor for $750. The owner states its maybe 12-14 years old and was used...

    In most parts of the country, lawn grass goes dormant in the winter. In the south, cool season ryegrass is often overseeded into the turf to maintain a green lawn. In the north, it's too cold for any grass to grow so we wait patiently for spring - sometimes under snow cover, sometimes not. Lawn...

    Hi all, I am looking for a landscaper who can jump start my lawn into being a lawn again. I inherited a lot of weeds and very little grass when I bought the house. I have done nothing more then mow it for the past few years and the weed problem has gotten out of control. I think wiping the...

    Looking for some expert advice here. Wife and I just moved into our first home and we're trying to get a handle on our lawn. (Just a bit of background: I spent six years in high school/college working on the grounds crew at a golf course, so I'm comfortable with turf care terminology and...

    I am in the middle of a project to save my property from gradual erosion caused by poor drainage and lots of rain. Newt and others offered me some great advice to get me started and the project is turning out pretty well. The catch with the project is that I have virtually no money for it. My...

    My wife and I are both currently out of work. We live in an area of New York State that has been going through an economic recession for longer than the rest of the country. Job prospects are bleak. We have taken drastic measures to reduce our monthly expenses. Fortunately, because we bought...

    I just moved next door to my parents on a 2 acre yard (originally this was 2 acres of their 5 acres, though this 2 acres didn't used to be mowed). After a year of freeloading on their mower, it's time to purchase my own. My parents use a John Deere 445 tractor that works well for their needs...
