We get a lot of landscaping news that covers everything from new zero turn mowers and gas-powered tools to hand tools and UTVs. Since we review hundreds of new tools each year, manufacturers send us information early. This may include info on brand new tools and products, or it may concern an accessory or new technology. Often, our news page includes the latest mower, blower, or trimmer that just became available to your local dealer or retailer.
Landscaping News and Events
Throughout the year we also attend many trade shows and events, including the Green Industry Expo (GIE). Here, we report on brand new tools and products that are changing the landscaping and heavy equipment industries.
