Fiskars StaySharp™ 18” Max Reel Mower: Product Review


If you have the strength to use a standard push mower (non self-propelled), you’ll have no problem using this reel mower. This is a high-quality mower that’s simple to assemble, easily adjustable, and folds for storage. It does a very good job of cutting most grass (it struggles a bit with overly tall or thick grass), although it doesn’t mulch the clippings and there’s no bag attachment. The added bonus is that you aren’t burning Continue Reading


Yard Force Electric Pressure Washer (YF1800LR): Product Review


This is one of the best non-commercial pressure washers I’ve tested to date. From its easy to understand and follow instructions to the ergonomic design, from the self-contained reels that hold the power cord and high pressure hose to the great cleaning performance, and from the power to weight ratio to the small details like the nozzle cleaning needle and the included turbo nozzle, every part of this power washer works flawlessly. As the company’s Continue Reading


Sun Joe Lithium-Ion 40-volt 12-inch Cordless Tiller + Cultivator: Product Review

EZ Leaf Hauler: Product Review


The EZ Leaf Hauler is a novel product for picking up and disposing of leaves. It’s essentially a large, heavy-duty tarp with 3 sets of handles for dragging, rolling, or stowing. Plus, it uses fiberglass poles to hold the back and edges up (like a giant dustpan) and stakes to keep the leading edge taut against the ground so leaves go into the hauler rather than under it. It worked very well and made Continue Reading


TreePans: Product Review


Overall, the TreePan worked as promised. It takes a little practice to put it together but once it’s in place it doesn’t require any work. It protected the tree I placed it around and the tree is now thriving. TreePans are made in the USA from recycled plastic that stands up well to the elements and requires no maintenance. Plus they’re reusable. However, some home gardeners may find that the appearance of the TreePan doesn’t Continue Reading
