Spring means more people will be spending time outdoors, so it makes sense to invest some time and energy into sprucing up your home’s outdoor living areas. Home expert and the host of HouseSmarts, Lou Manfredini, spoke with Studio 512 about his top tips for DIYs this season.

“First let’s talk lawn, and how you take care of it. You can get professional results by using this awesome battery technology from TORO.

60V MAX 21 in. Stripe Dual-Blades Self-Propelled Mower

  • Featuring patent-pending, pro-level striping technology, this mower platform creates a neighbor-envying lawn.
  • It delivers up to 65 minutes of runtime on just one charge and provides enough stamina to cut up to 2/3 acre of grass.
  • The interchangeable and rechargeable battery can go into 75 different tools for all seasons, like TORO’s 60V MAX Attachment Capable String Trimmer.
  • The powerhead can be easily swapped out with multiple other attachment-capable tools, including saws, edgers, and trimmers, so you’re ready for every job in the yard.

“Are you thinking of building a new deck this season? I’ve got your low-maintenance solution from Trex that will look as beautiful 25 years from now as it will today.”

  • Trex Transcend Lineage composite decking is the latest introduction from the brand that started it all and is Trex’s coolest decking yet – literally.
  • Transcend Lineage features subtle graining that gives that natural appearance.
  • Available in 4 hues inspired by some of the most picturesque locales in the US.
