Yard Smarts Hotline Winds Down

Month-long Yard Smarts hotline sponsored by Briggs & Stratton comes to a close on May 15; consumers have been given expert advice in all facets of lawn care and lawn and garden equipment.

This spring, homeowners hungry for yard care knowledge have been able to turn to the month-long Yard Smarts Hotline. Staffed by lawn, garden and equipment experts, the hotline is sponsored by Briggs & Stratton Corporation.

By visiting www.yardsmarts.com from April 15 to May 15, or by calling 1-866-YARD-TIPS, consumers have been able to ask their lawn care questions and get expert help. All hotline questions have been personally answered within 24 hours. On four Fridays during the hotline (April 15 and 29, May 6 and 13), homeowners can speak directly with lawn, garden and equipment experts from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. CT. Everyone who participates in the hotline by asking a question can also participate in a drawing to win a new lawn mower. T-shirts are also being given away randomly throughout the hotline.

“We’re ready for whatever homeowners can ask us,” says Trey Rogers, Ph.D., the Briggs & Stratton Yard Doctor and a world renowned expert on lawn care. He’s been leading the team of more than 40 experts who specialize in all facets of yard care, from lawn and garden to equipment advice and troubleshooting. “Whether you have a question about fertilizer, weeds, what to plant or how to start your lawn mower – you name it – we’re here to help. Talk to us!”
