Summer Lawn Care Quick-tips

1. When in doubt, raise the cutting deck.
2. A shallow watering is worse than no water at all.
3. Don’t try to “water it back to life” – if it goes dormant, leave it.
4. Mulching > bagging
5. Never cut more than 1/3 of the blade at one time.
6. If you miss a regular cutting, use the highest setting.
7. Like a razor blade when shaving, a dull mower blade is a no-go.
8. If you must fertilize during the summer, only use organics.
9. Consider stepping stones for high-traffic areas.

11. Mow in varying patterns to avoid creating ruts.
12. Watering in the evening promotes fungal diseases.
13. Flush dog urine with water to prevent nitrogen burn.

VIDEO – How to Assemble the Brinly Zero Turn Mower Dethatcher

Share Button

This latest addition to our Video Assembly Guide series focuses on our newest product–the 48″ front-mounted zero turn mower dethatcher. The mowers of the future, zero turn radius machines offer arguably better cut quality, significantly faster speeds, and improved maneuverability which limits the need for string trimming afterward. Due to their high speeds and delicately-balanced center of gravity requirements, attachments for ZTR’s have been relatively scarce, generally reserved only for commercial users due to prohibitively high costs. Never ones to back down from a challenge, we designed the first ZTR-optimized dethatcher inexpensive enough for residential users, yet still robust enough for commercial applications. And as always, we support our products with best-in-class multi-media educational content and product support services. Brinly products have been leading the pack since 1839, and we’re not planning on slowing down anytime soon.
