They don’t call it Lawn Guyland for nothin’! Aside from the accent, we Long Islanders love a nicely manicured lawn. Sure, you can hire a kid to do it or just use the typical push mower but nothing says you’re at the top of the heap than a kickin’ lawn tractor.
Where does one get this suburban status symbol?
Glad you asked! We listed a bunch of places to get one so you can be king of the hill in your neighborhood. (Sure you can go to Home Depot or Lowes, but where’s the fun in that?)
