Lawn Care: Then And Now

As long as there have been lawns, there have been lawn care tools.

We've come a long way since the days of manual scythes and animal grazing.

Heck, modern mowers look like they came straight out of the Jetsons compared to the smoke-spewing mowers of decades ago.

So let's take a quick look at the progress our machines have made, making our lawn chores so much easier.

History
Lawns, as we know them, originated as areas for communal grazing. It wasn't until the 19th century that a manicured swath of grass became seen as a status symbol among land-owning nobility.

Even in America, lawns started out as small grazing areas or vegetable gardens. It wasn't until the Post-World War II middle-class boom that grassy yards became a fixture of suburban living.
