Ideal for customers and yard-workers of all shapes, sizes, and experience levels, Jack’s New Grass is the Triad’s go-to spot for outdoor power equipment sales and repairs.
Family-owned Jack’s New Grass has been servicing the greater Triad area since 1981. Owner Jack started the business in his basement by sharpening tools and saw blades. When Jack’s son Randy suggested that they incorporate selling push mowers, their business boomed and Jack’s New Grass stands strong over 40 years later.
The technicians at Jack’s New Grass perform maintenance and repair work on mowers and outdoor power equipment of all brands. Loyal Jack’s New Grass clients will find that the benefits of shopping local greatly outweigh the benefits of shopping at major hardware chains.

Customer favorite Teresa has been a Jack’s New Grass team member for seven years, after Jack took a chance on hiring her with no experience in the industry. She quickly became a shop staple by learning as much as she could about outdoor equipment and sales, and stays current with her technician certifications each year. She attributes much of her acquired knowledge over the years to the help and expertise of Jack and Randy, and enjoys helping other women learn new skills in lawn care on the job.
Because Spartan mowers and other equipment sold at Jack’s New Grass are made with materials produced in America, Jack’s New Grass has not experienced hardship when it comes to COVID-related supply chain and inventory shortages. In the previous year alone, Jack’s New Grass sold 190 mowers, with steady business throughout the winter months. Along with high-powered, durable mowers, Jack’s New Grass has also introduced a golf cart-like neighborhood vehicle to its fleet, reaching a speed of up to 20 mph with a regenerative braking system that recharges its battery while drivers brake downhill. The vehicle is fit for all terrain, from the beach to the mountains, and is the beginning of a new expansion of the inventory at Jack’s New Grass.
