Itâ€™s the first week of March and if youâ€™re like me, youâ€™re thinking that springtime canâ€™t come soon enough. Winter was fun, but these off-and-on bouts of sunshine arenâ€™t cutting it; I need Vitamin D!
The only thing that I could give up about the spring season is the yard work. Itâ€™s tough coming back to an unkempt tangle of grass and shrubs in the backyard. So for this weekâ€™s #TuesdayTips, join us in learning how to trim back the grass safely.
Before you do anything, make sure your grass trimmer isnâ€™t involved in Hondaâ€™s recent recall. Then:
- Clear area of sticks, rocks, toys, and other objects that could be picked up and thrown by the trimmer.
- Wear protective gear including:
- Safety glasses or goggles
- Long pants
- Sturdy, close-toed shoes
Follow these steps to keep your yard looking amazing and keeping yourself safe from harm. The Consumer Product Safety Commission documented 11,000 reports of hospital treatments for injuries stemming from grass trimmer accidents in 2006. Donâ€™t be one of those this year.
Check to see if any of your landscaping tools have been recalled in our Marketplace.
