Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Winterizing the Lawnmower

Once the final lawn cut for the season has been done it is time to winterize the lawnmower.  This is not a difficult task but neglecting to do so may cause starting problems in the spring and premature rusting of the lawnmower bed.    Here's what we do:

  • remove any grass build-up under the bed
  • hose down the bed and under the bed well
  • allow to fully dry in a sunny location
  • rub a bit of oil onto the blade to prevent rusting 
  • pour gas stabilizer into the gas tank
  • place the lawnmower in corner of garage ready for the following season

Happy Gardening!
