Season Firewood

How to Season Firewood

While the temperatures outside continue to heat up, firewood is probably the last thing on your mind. But if you’re looking for an excuse to fire up the chainsaw, it might be a great time to start gathering logs to burn this winter. (And any time is a good time for chainsaw maintenance!)

Just make sure that any logs you cut now have plenty of time to dry before you burn them. Burning fresh-cut firewood or green wood produces a lot of smoke and is a big contributor to dangerous creosote buildup in chimneys, a leading cause of chimney fires.

Lawn Mower Maintenance

What Everyone Needs to Know About Lawn Mower Maintenance

The lawn mower is the unsung hero in our backyard arsenal. We expect it to start on the first pull without fail, cut through mountains of grass, handle rocks and debris, and keep right on working through the end of fall. Yet many of us skimp on lawn mower maintenance or skip it altogether.

But, lack of regular maintenance is one of the reasons why many lawn mowers don’t last as long as they should. According to HomeGuides, “The average lawn mower lasts eight to 10 years with proper maintenance and care. A lawnmower that is not maintained may last one-half that time.”

Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to keep your mower in tip-top shape. In fact, most of the work can be completed at the end of the mowing season or before the first grass cut in the spring. Here’s a handy checklist on what to do during each season to get the most from your mower.
