I’ve operated a chain saw since I was about 12. Growing up around chainsaws, my dad and I occasionally needed to cut up trees that had fallen into fields, or trees that had grown over fences and property lines between our farm and the neighbors’.
 
We also cut wood to heat our home, so I had a good upbringing in using a saw — sort of.
 
I learned such things as how to mix the fuel properly, how to hold the saw level when cutting and how to predict and avoid pinches (those pressure points in the limb that clamp down on the saw, trapping it into place).
 
I also learned about kick-back — the sudden,...
 
There’s nothing like the approach of bad weather to get everyone in its expected path thinking about generators. But for some prospective buyers, the noise and the quality of power that a portable generator supplies is a turn-off. That’s where an inverter model comes in.

The Greater Toronto Area has been inundated with excessive rainfall yet again! Resulting in saturated soils and flooding in many areas. Many other areas also have been experiencing above average rainfall.
 
When it is too wet, it is difficult to keep up with regular garden and yard maintenance. The excessively wet soils also can damage some plants or even kill them. When gardens and yards are flooded, even more severe damage can occur, causing the death of lawns, flowers, shrubs or trees. Excess water forces oxygen out of the soil, which in effect causes the plants’ roots to die or drown from lack of oxygen.

Research shows that more than 75,000 people are treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms each year for injuries caused by power lawn mowers. Many of these injuries were caused by carelessness. One important step to safety is to read the operator's manual that comes with the mower.
 
Power mowers are designed to cut dense grass when used properly and will mulch grass and chop up small sticks and weed stems.

There are many ways to improve how your lawn looks from early spring to late fall that will cost very little or that you can do for free.
 
Mowing is an activity that happens every year in every yard. Here are a few ideas that can help keep your lawn healthier.
 
 
Mow more frequently -- Lawns that are mowed more often allow you to leave the clippings that will provide as much as a pound of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet. A good rule of thumb is to remove no more than one-third of the grass blade at any one...

It appears as if the mowing season will be continuing throughout the summer. As the gentle hums of the neighborhood power tools and mouth-watering smell of barbeque fill the air, more and more local residents want to enjoy their yards and landscapes; rather than work to maintain them.
 
The excessive rains and cooler temperatures have made for quite a workout. A lot of homeowners are "making it easy" by upgrading to practical, time-saving tools that improve the look of your yard quickly, safely and effectively.
