Itching to get the yard into shape for the summer?

Here are ways to help ensure your spring spruce-up is disaster-free.

  • Limber up. Yard chores may seem easy, but they involve muscles you probably haven’t used in a while.
  • Always wear protective clothing when you handle pesticides and fertilizers,
  • More than 60,000 people are treated in emergency rooms each year for lawn-mower injuries.
  • Rake before you mow to prevent any stones and loose debris from launching into the air.
  • Never operate a mower in your bare feet and avoid wearing loose clothing.
  • Never start a mower indoors.
  • When refueling your mower, make sure the engine is off and cool. Don’t spill gasoline on a hot engine — and don’t smoke while pouring gasoline.
  • Never leave your mower operational while unattended.
  • Don’t use electrical mowers on wet Grass.
