TRIMMING—THE MARTHA DIFFERENCE

Nancy Clark | April 13, 2019

Martha Stewart has a lot of juice in cooking, DIY crafts, home décor tops and party planning. She and Snoop Dogg are back for Season 3 this month cooking up trouble on Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party Challenge on VH1.

Martha doles out advice on just about any topic including trimming your lawn. A crisp and sharp trimmed edge is the only way to achieve the perfect lawn that rates Martha’s stamp of approval.

Trimming and edging might seem like an afterthought, but it’s actually the differentiator that can make your lawn look professionally done vs. hired out to a college kid who mows one-handed while chugging a beer in the other. Watch a commercial crew go after the grass at an office property and it seems like the youngest, skinniest kid is always assigned to the trimmer. Maybe it’s because it’s the least dangerous of lawn care equipment, or the least expensive and thus the least loss when mishandled.

Hands-on training by a pro is always, always the best practice.

First it’s about the proper size trimmer. Go big for commercial. Smaller versions are right-sized for personal yards. The length of trim cord is also a consideration: shorter for small yards; longer for vast commercial properties.

And it’s important to equip your trimmer with the accessories that give the user more control over the functionality. The Trimmer Assist String Trimmer Strap (Product ID 14790) keeps the trimmer upright and tight to the body. When the works done, try the Trimmer Rack for Open Trailers that keeps multiple trimmers stored horizontally, protecting them from being crushed by the weight of mowers or other equipment.

Mow More features 17 brands of trimmer equipment including Champion, Echo, Elvex, Husqvarna, Kawasaki, Lawn Boy, Maryuyama, NGK, No Smoke, Red Max, Shindaiwa, Stihl, Tanaka, Tecumseh, Toro, Walbro, Zama. You will always get friendly service, quick shipping and free shipping on orders of $250 or more. All that being said, we are constantly working to improve our customer's experience. If you don't see a mower blade that you need or have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. We will do everything we can to help you and make your experience with mowmore.com a great one.
