(NAPS) – You don’t have to be an expert to create a beautiful yard that makes your neighbors green with envy. With a little knowledge and the right equipment for the job at hand, you can easily enjoy a healthy, green lawn. Here are a few tips to help you choose the right mower: n Know your yard The first step is to understand your yard – how big is it, is it flat and smooth or sloping? Will you mow around trees, till a garden or plow the driveway? If working with less than half an acre, a walk-behind mower will do the trick. But if you’re working with larger acreage, varying terrain or a property with plenty of obstacles to trim around, you may want to choose a riding lawn mower. n All yards aren’t alike If you need to do more than mowing, a sub-compact tractor may be for you. Not only can you mow large volumes of grass with a high-quality cut, but also you have an added option of using implements like loaders and excavators to accomplish other tasks around the yard. n Look for proven reliability For a closer look at the reliability and durability of specific models, as well as a complete list of independent ratings, check Consumer Reports. n Think about after-sale support Make sure your equipment provider offers reliable after-sale service and can guarantee quick repair if you run into any problems.
