Equip: 12 Essentials for Dealing With Yardwork

Warm spring weather brings the urge to crank the lawn mower and cut grass. Yardwork can take all day, but tidying up is worth the time. A clean and aesthetically pleasing lawn impresses your family, friends and guests. 

Yardwork doesn’t have to be time-consuming. Here are 12 essentials to make things easier. 

1. IKON 42 Kawasaki

Gone are the days when you needed to push around a lawn mower for an hour. A riding model makes the job much easier, but a zero-turn mower is even better.

Zero-turn mowers make mowing five acres of grass a breeze. The IKON 42 Kawasaki quickly switches from forward to reverse and turns on a dime. Tight spaces aren’t an issue when you’re hauling this machine around.

2. Worx Landroid

Mowing grass can lead to bug bites, allergy attacks from pollen and even the occasional snake. You don’t have to cut grass if you don’t have to. The WORX Landroid is a robotic lawn mower that does it for you. 

Artificial intelligence (AI) allows the machine to work autonomously. The Landroid has a high-dynamic range camera to stay on the grass and not venture into a pond or crash into people. Let the Landroid cut grass while you focus on decluttering the garage or starting that DIY project you’ve always thought about.

You can use the Mac Wagon for nearly anything. Its steel frame holds up to 150 pounds, and the interior has polyester fabric you can easily clean. Plus, you can fold it up and transport it anywhere. The Mac Wagon is terrific for gardening or a day at the park.

4. Professional EZ Travel Collection Adjustable Rake

The rake becomes your most valuable player when autumn arrives. The leaves change colors, fall off and end up all over your lawn. Hopefully, they stay out of your gutters. You need a rake, so get an adjustable version from the Professional EZ Travel Collection.

A large rake is nice, but it can’t fit everywhere. You need a narrow size to reach inside the tight spaces. The steel tines on this rake range from 37 to 68 inches.
