This Poulan Pro PO17542LT riding lawn tractor, is just a little less powerful than the Poulan PO19542LT below on this best riding lawn tractor list. It is $50-100 cheaper, and I have included it just because of this fact. It still gives a 42 inch swath cut, but the Briggs & Stratton engine is 17 1/2 horse power compared to the 19.5 hp on the other Poulan lawnmower.

Poulan PO17542LT 42-Inch Riding Lawn Tractor With 6-Speed Transmission
If you cut your grass very regularly and don't find yourself having to cut through wet thick longer grounds very often than this mower may well be exactly what you are looking for. If you know that you are not the most diligent when it comes to cutting the grass frequently, then the higher course power model is probably the better bet for you.

So again like most of the riding mowers on this page, in this price range, there is a six speed automatic transmission so you can virtually set the mower to cruise which certainly is an advantage when you are going through heavier denser grass and need to go slowly.

Having a comfortable seat and that 18 inch turning radius will make maneuvering and driving this tractor simple, easy and comfortable. If you want to know more about the Poulan Pro, just check out the image above to follow the link to Amazon. You can shop around only so much, there are only so many riding mowers available in this price point and I think this is the best is the list of the best of them all.

This large Poulan PO19542LT lawn tractor is well rated, and is one of the top-selling riding mowers on Amazon. There is a reason for this. There are advantages to buying lawn tractors and other big-ticket items on Amazon, sometimes you can avoid paying sales tax and also when free shipping is included, it is almost a better deal than your local big box home store.

Poulan PO19542LT 42-Inch Riding Lawn Tractor
So with a nice time saving wide 42 inch cutting path and blade width, the Poulan Pro PO19542LT riding mower also has an 19.5 hp reliable Briggs & Stratton motor to give a great even cut. In the $1500 price range and below, the you certainly will be very lucky to find a hydrostatic transmission, but the manual transmission on this gas lawnmower with forward and reverse gears and multiple speeds is quite convenient and easy to use.

The 18 inch turning radius is great especially if you have a lawn to cut that is an irregular shape or you have to mow around trees. Having a comfortable seat and steering wheel certainly is a plus and a cup holder is a must when you're going to be spending some time mowing your lawn, and having fun doing it.

There is a surprising amount of choice at the $1500 range. Remember if you are a member of Amazon prime or sign-up, depending on the vendor, you may be able to have them ship to your home for free. This almost makes it easier than going to the store, especially if you read the reviews and are happy with your choice.

Worthy tips to create lovely garden scenery
Posted on Aug 23, 2016 7:01 AM

You become a designer who designs the garden landscape that you have when you bring a new plant from a nursery to your garden. You need to learn those things if you want to be a great designer so you can have the best panorama. You may have noted that some gardens look ordered while others look finished

The following helpful tips will help you to have a garden that stands out from other gardens and will stop you from learning what to do as well.

Prepare the perfect garden.

The garden's landscape for goats needs to be planned in such a way that it now looks beautiful while also considering the future. You'll find it best to plant your important crop set in this way.

Have a point of focus.

Your garden's centerpiece must be such that when walking in your garden, it attracts people and captures their attention. It should not be out - of-place or distinct from others. As the focal point, you can have an antique garden bench, but don't use an item that isn't connected to the garden. A body of water or an oak tree can be a perfect focal point for the garden.

Be in the garden with motion.

An unmoved garden landscape is like a painting. Paintings are great on the walls but movement in the garden is important for you to give life and make your garden fun.

You might wonder how movement should be. It's quite easy for you to have such a step inside your garden by adding swingy ornamental grass or flowers that attract birds and butterflies. Some other thing you want to look at is the roots on a crop. The roots are unbelievably important for a plant because it is how the plant gets the food and water it needs. Your plant will die from the nutrients it requires with a poor root system.

Don't feel under pressure to have any plant species available when you have a garden. Pick the species that will help you have an easier to keep garden and make it look better. Choose your plants seasonally so that you can have flowers throughout the year in your garden and add to your biodiversity in the garden.

You need to align the landscape design in your garden with your own home. If you have an architecture-free house, you will benefit from the edges softened by the garden you have. You have to note that you must not overdo it when matching your garden to the home.

Think differently too.

You should think completely different from what you now have when planning the landscaping of your backyard. For starters, you don't feel you have to keep it this way if you have overgrown shrubbery. You may be surprised by finding a sunny sport, ideal for a rose bed, by removing the sport.

If choosing a plant base for a specific spot in your yard, consider the rate of growth and the final size it will be. If you do not focus your plant choice on these factors, then the money you spend will not result in total beautification, but you will eventually have to invest more change money.

If you think you're gaining a lot if you have a cheap plant that grows quickly, you're thinking unfairly. Your initial savings will eat up the money you spend later on pruning and other upkeep. So, have a purposeful range and correct positioning of garden trees.

The 3 advantages of Utility Vehicles for Landscaping

There are several other aspects to consider if you have a landscape design company, besides having the right staff to make decorative plans and enabling them to use various accessories for embellishment. The important element is utility vehicles, often used for the purpose of landscape design.

It varies on your willingness either to buy utility vehicles for your use or to rent them out when necessary. The time required for a utility vehicle may sometimes be very costly. You may need to spend several days doing the customer task or employ one regular to pay for the coverage for it.

Can be driven by anybody-they are user-friendly vehicles with car-like characteristics. It can suit people with similar characteristics like the steering wheel, brake, etc. It has no high speed like a vehicle, but is sufficiently strong to transport goods from one position to the other even on rough terrain. You can choose from different models to suit your needs.

Make sure your garden is nice and pest-free, mostly. In the summer months already, bugs are bad enough. By adding plants, things get worse quickly. Plants can be the first move on your way to your home by avoiding goats. When assessing the relative health of a crop, you want to investigate two main areas. One is the plant's foliage. You're looking for dense, bushy leaves instead of scattered or diluted. All leaves should be bright green if there is no different colored leaves of the plant species.

Has flexible applications-In addition to transporting goods to each other, it is also a landscape device where attachments such as moles, snow blades and sprayers, angle spray, are attached. This portion can easily be added to the rear end and can be easily done with landscape tasks. Different models can enable you to undertake a satisfactory landscaping project

Carries out light work-A utility vehicle can look trained, but can not carry out such tasks as lifting stones, iron... You can not assume multipurpose, apart from moving the equipment and the necessary goods from one location to another and meet the other landscape needs often of other used heavy-duty vehicles such as John Deere, bobcats, etc.

This is of utmost significance because it decides the longevity of your loved garden. The proper isolation of plants guarantees that the correct air flow for the plants persists and avoids contact with goats. You may think that the garden is empty. Sure, these areas will be filled and can easily be filled by proper annual use and positioning.

Gardening with plastic mulch
Posted on Jul 29, 2016 7:29 AM

Why use non-toxic plastic in your garden? This product is a revolutionary development in food production. With it you create a tropical climate in your own garden. You will harvest earlier and longer.

How it works

The black plastic blocks the weeds.
Condensation waters the garden.
The moist earth encourages the earth worms to aerate and irrigate the soil.
So the earth worms cultivate the garden and add fertilizer, the plastic warms the soil 10 to 15 degrees and that provides earlier and better germination, plus some frost protection. You will also harvest weeks earlier.

Thumb of 2016-07-29/ronald67/c4d93b

How to prepare the garden for installation

Locate garden on well drained plot of ground.
Ground should be a reasonably level surface.
You can till the ground(for the last time) and fertilize it like you normally would.
You can also just install the plastic over a lawn area without preparation.
Place a layer of 10 mil non-toxic and uv protected black plastic over the desired garden area.
Dig a trench 6 inches wide and 6 inches deep all around the edge of the plastic on the rack.
Roll the edge of the plastic into the trench and cover this strip with dirt to hold the plastic in place.
Cut 2 ½ inch holes every 12 inches in a row.
Make the rows about 30 inches apart.
For row crops(carrots, beets, lettuce, etc.) cut a 4 inch strip from hole to hole, skipping a hole occasionally(to keep plastic in place)
Take a vacation with your puppies and come back to a great garden. Harvest and eat! Remember the only expense after the first year is seeds and starter plants. This system has been used for over 25 years.

How to Keep Squirrels Out of Your Nut Trees:

Your first trouble in raising pecans, hickory nuts and walnuts is the worms that destroy the kernel. Ants raise aphids in the ground and carry them up the nut and fruit trees and place them in the nut and fruit where the nut or fruit is attached to the tree. There are many ways that you can keep the ants from taking these aphids and planting them in the nuts or fruits and the one that I use is Raid House and Garden Bug Killer. This does not have to be sprayed on the fruit. Just spray two rings on the trunk of the tree about one foot apart. You might call this a picket line because the ants will not cross it. Then when the squirrels start cutting on the nuts take heavy brown wrapping paper about four feet wide and wrap one layer or more abound the tree and leave it there until all of the nuts have been picked. Squirrels will take a run at this tree but can't get over the paper, they will fall off. A squirrel can't jump up more than a couple of feet, but if they are in one tree they can jump to a limb 20 feet below. Other paper might also work.
