OK folks.... I just bought 12+K in equipment: -JD735 with a 60" deck -JD 140XL trimmer and a new trailer w/dove tail. Next on my list is: -Backpack blower - Shindaiwa -Used Rider with bagger -Edger....Stick! - Shindaiwa -Small 21" push mower w/ bagger - Any kind -Small dumping trailer for mower - Any kind Is this all I need for a spring-clean up? I assume I would need a rake, bags, trash stick pick'er upper thing and maybe a shovel... My local dealer told me to get a used rider to do the spring clean ups with.... I agree... BUT what is everyone elses trick to a smooth spring clean up and do you aerate the same day or do before you start cutting??? I also tried e-mailing Scott's and can not seem to get an answer from them as to how I go about buying their products from other than say, Home Depot, Menard's... Ect. I really like Scott's approach to lawn maint. (OR) should I stay away from NON-Spray type fertilizers and pesticides???? I don't think I need a LIC. to spread granular fertilizers in WI, just spray type... Any Help on all this is MUCH appreciated.
