Spring has FINALLY sprung! Although temperatures flutter well below average, for all purposes spring has arrived. Not only do recent temperatures speak of spring, but look along the highways and county roads during your weekend getaways. Before you know it, plants will be in bloom. Flowering trees, forsythia bushes, daffodils, and irises will join the celebration in showing their colors. Soon we shall see our first hummingbirds. As the signs of spring grow stronger my desire to get into my garden also grows.

Mowing is the best way to control weeds in the lawn. Mowing is also useful in cutting the...

Wright Manufacturing has introduced a new, compact Stander to its lineup. The Stander Intensity, to be known as the Stander I, is equipped with the first 36-inch deck to incorporate Wright’s Aero Core technology.
