One of the best ways to help reduce the risk posed by lawn mowers is to wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). It is not only important to wear appropriate PPE, but also to maintain it. If you are unsure if your equipment is up to standard, visit the Safe Work Australia website.

Whether it’s the kids’ guinea pigs eating that patch of lawn until it’s bare, or the dog’s urine killing the grass, we understand your frustration when your pets damage your beloved backyard.

Take a look at our tips on how to stop pets from causing outdoor damage without having to spend a fortune or go to a whole lot of trouble.

You’ve probably heard that it’s best to mow grass when it’s dry. Wet grass can hurt your lawn mower and dull its blades. However, sometimes you have to mow grass when it’s wet. If it has been raining for days and your wife is tired of you “putting it off,” here are some methods you can use to cut your wet grass with the least amount of damage to your equipment.
