[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Every year we tend to forget about our mowers for 6 months. Well today is the day, the day we can start thinking about them again. It’s time to usher in a new era, and almost time for the “Changing of the Guard” (from snowblower to mower). As we plan to retire our blower to the shed, and prep our mower for the short summer season, use these helpful tips to help extend the life of both machines.
I always recommend bringing your mower out and giving it a good checkup before the mowing season begins. This is something most people can do themselves, but there are professionals in Anchorage that can do it for you. Here at GEM, we go through all of our mowers starting in late March, and this article can help guide you through your lawn mower maintenance.

This thin layer of thatch (1/2″) is great for preventing your lawn from drying out from the hot summer sun. Too much thatch, however, can wreak havoc on your lawn, as well as looking very unsightly. Thatch occurs when new grass growth occurs faster than the decomposition of the old growth.
Whenever you decide to sell your home, it can be a stressful and hectic time. It always seems there are a million things that need to be taken care of to present your home in “show” condition. Your real estate agent will likely have their own suggestions, and it is in their best interest to sell your home quickly, so heed their advice!
One of the most common complaints I hear from agents is regarding poor curb appeal. Now curb appeal encompasses a number of exterior issues, including; exterior paint, loose/rusty gutters, uneven or broken walkways, heaving driveways, sagging garage doors, loose trim, and many more.

In fact, it is one of the most important questions to ask any contractor working in/on your home. This includes the neighborhood kid who might mow your lawn, the friend of a friend that cleans your house, or the handyman from the poster hanging in the gas station. And here’s why-
