From tundra to tulips: Top equipment for achieving a manicured lawn this season

(BPT) – Snowmageddon. Snowpocalypse. Polar Vortex 2.0. If you’re like most Americans, you’re limping to the finish line of yet another never-ending winter. But this winter doesn’t just have people at their breaking points, it has lawns across the country ready for a relief as well.

“To say that lawns wake up from the winter hungry and ready for maintenance would be putting it lightly,” says John Turner, DIY expert and regular contributor to “Achieving a beautiful lawn – even after a particularly brutal winter – is certainly attainable. But it all starts by leveraging the right equipment for your truly unique lawn.”

To help get your yard looking its best this season, the Craftsman brand has new, innovative lawn and garden equipment to tackle a variety of needs:

* Ride in style – Riding lawn mowers take the cake for ease and comfort – especially if you have tall grass or hilly terrain. The Craftsman Pro Series Riding Lawn Mowers come in 42-, 46- and 54-in. reinforced steel decks for strength and durability and capabilities to reach speeds of up to 5.5 mph. Have an extra-large lawn? The Craftsman Pro Series Zero Turn Riding Mowers have you covered – and with a zero-inch turning radius, trees and bushes won’t slow you down.

* Stay powered and ditch the gas – The Craftsman 40-Volt category is the brand’s newest and most powerful cordless lawn and garden platform. The collection of lawn tools is powered by a 40 Volt MAX lithium-ion battery and includes a hedge trimmer, line trimmer, 12-inch chainsaw, sweeper and push mower.

* Devil is in the details – Edging tools are ideal for creating a beautiful, finished edge along driveways, walking paths and sidewalks. Edgers are simple aesthetic tools that cut out grass, roots and weeds along the edge of your pavement, and done correctly, they can set the standard for the rest of your neighborhood.
