Now that spring is knocking on the door. It’s time to start thinking about your first lawn and garden project. With that said, I always remind people to “work smarter, not harder”. When you decide to start a project, take a moment to see what your working conditions will be to start with.

For example:

  • Do you kn0w where your phone line, electrical power line, and gas line is buried ? Rent a locator or hire someone to find it before you start to dig.
  • Will you be using the machine on a slope or hill? What precautions should you take to ensure safe operation of the machine?
  • Has your garden soil been tilled recently? If not, the soil is probably hard packed; make the job easier with a rear tine tiller. (See Rototiller Rundown for more information on this subject)

Plan the job out ahead of time and put safety first; the job will run smoother and safer.
