Sure, most anyone can buy a lawnmower oe weed a garden. But while you may don’t mind cutting the grass yourself, it takes up a lot of free time - time that could be better spent with your family or friends.
The average yard size in the United States is nearly 11,000 square feet (nearly a quarter of an acre!) - that’s a lot of grass to cut. Add in chores like leaf removal, aeration, fertilizing, and much more, you’re going to find that most of your sunny days are eaten up just by tending to your lawn.
What if you could spend more time enjoying your lawn - and less time caring for it? With Sweeps, that dream becomes a reality.
Mulching: If your flower beds are looking sparse, hire a Sweeper to lay down a fresh layer of mulch.
