August 13, 2013

There are many factors that go into maintaining a healthy lawn. The lawn needs an adequate amount of sunlight mixed with rain, as well as any additional special attention from the person responsible for the continuous upkeep. However, the equation for success doesn’t stop there; the right tools need to be on deck, including lawn maintenance equipment ready to conquer any task that stands in the way.

Throughout 2013, John Deere and Company (U.S) has announced three additions to their already comprehensive offering of lawn maintenance equipment. Let’s take a look at what’s hot off the assembly line in 2013, and how each piece of equipment can assist in making your lawn the envy of the town.
