Some ladies lunch, and some ladies lose themselves in their yards and flower gardens! If you are more like the second variety, Jack’s New Grass in Winston-Salem is a must-know local business, and their staff may become your new best friends.
Serving Winston-Salem, Clemmons, Lewisville, and Davie County since 1981, Jack’s New Grass is a favorite family-owned business that actually did begin in the family basement! That family focus and commitment to their customers translates to inventory selected with quality and durability in mind, including both new and used equipment, impeccable service options, and an extensive collection of parts for both new and used tools. If you’re a homeowner, a lawn care or tree professional, or a local contractor, you’re likely already familiar with their unsurpassed service and selection.
If you’re a “single-female-with-house” and you’re just getting started in your lawn care education, come by Jack’s New Grass and see Teresa! She learned the business from scratch and loves showing mowing and trimming novices how it’s done. You can always catch a demonstration going on in the store, plenty of folks to answer your questions, and tool options that are lightweight and even better, battery powered.
Making yard work part of your daily exercise routine is definitely a win-win – good for the heart and good for the soul! Teresa offered us insight into her best tools to get started, complete, as always, with full instruction and impeccable warranties you may not find in the super-sized hardware stores.
Top Five Tools for Women
1. The single battery 18-volt weed eater
2. A leaf blower
3. All-around hedge trimmer
4. The Makita battery-operated chainsaw
5. A self-propelled, 21-inch mower (easy to start and basically walks itself!)
Let’s just say Forsyth Woman’s own Keela Johnson is the recent recipient of the Makita battery chainsaw and is already a huge fan!
“My friend and neighbor is teaching me how to prune trees and create topiaries. I’m not yet at Master Gardener level, but with the help of this tool, I am on my way,” says Keela.
More handy tips for afternoons and weekends in the yard: It sounds obvious, but always wear sturdy shoes with closed toes for yard chores. Read your equipment instruction manuals thoroughly, and even consider protective goggles to make you feel more comfortable. Drink plenty of water on hot days and seek some shade when you need a break!

They carry only the best names in equipment — Spartan mowers, Makita blowers, mowers, chainsaws, and grass trimmers, Oregon blowers, mowers, chainsaws, and hedge trimmers, along with Briggs & Stratton and Kawasaki engines.
