Aerate Your Lawn This Spring For Lush, Green Grass

Published

April is the cruellest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain.” – T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land

I do not agree with T.S. Eliot that April is the cruelest month. January certainly has a claim to that distinction; at least April marks the start of baseball season. Still, there is no arguing with the fact that this time of year “dull roots are stirred with spring rain.” Although the weather outside your window may be dreary, that is no excuse to sit back and wait for the lush green brought on by May. If you want to take full advantage of the rain, there is work to be done, starting by aerating your lawn.

What does it mean to aerate your lawn? Simply put, aerating pokes deep holes in the soil under your grass, allowing air, water, and nutrients to seep down to the roots. As you would expect by the word “aerate,” it means allowing your lawn to “breathe.” Now, you could hire a company like Scotts to handle this for you, but you could also just do it yourself. More and more people are taking this latter route. One of the #1 new products on all of Amazon is the Hermsche Coring Aerator.

Hermsche Plug Aeration Manual Lawn Coring Aerator 4 Core with Semi-Open Slot Hollow Tine Lawn Aerator Heavy Duty Plug Core Aeration Tool for Compacted Soils and Lawns Yard, 36.2″ x 11.7″, Black — $34.99

At $35, the price is definitely right on the manual Hermsche tool. However, if you really want to invest in your lawn this spring, you can go all out and buy Sun Joe’s electric dethatcher and scarifier. Unlike a coring aerator which digs deep holes, the Sun Joe machine focuses more on breaking up dead grass buildup on the surface of your lawn.

Sun Joe AJ805E 15-Inch 13-Amp Electric Dethatcher and Scarifier w/Removeable 13.2-Gal Collection Bag, 5-Position Height Adjustment, Airboost Technology Increases Lawn Health, Green — $179

Your third option when it comes to preparing your lawn this April is lawn aerator shoes. They work exactly as they sound—they are shoes with spikes that do the aerating for you as you walk across your lawn.

FSTSLK Metal Lawn Aerator Shoes – Spiked Shoes for Lawn Care – Grass Aerator – Aluminum Base – 3 Adjustable Straps Yard Aerator – Heavy Duty Metal Buckles – One Size Fits All — $32.99

Any of the three products above will help you use the April rainfall to your advantage. With hard work and some luck, April showers will not only bring May flowers but also a verdant front lawn.

At $9, This Silly Plush Turkey Hat Is A Must-Own

Published

on

In 2022, Santa hats are out. Silly turkey hats are in.

I was on Amazon looking for things to do over Thanksgiving with relatives (eventually landing on the brand new game Christmas Categories) when I came across this:

Kangaroo Plush Thanksgiving Day Roasted Turkey Hat Tan — $8.95

My first thought was that it creates the perfect opportunity for someone in the family to recreate the classic Monica turkey head scene from Friends:

Then I realized that there are many ways you can have fun with the turkey hat Thanksgiving. When you play games, you can decide in advance that the loser has to wear the turkey hat. Or perhaps you can start a tradition that whoever carves the turkey each year gets to wear the turkey hat. The possibilities are endless!

No matter how you are spending the holiday this year (with funny turkey hat, or sans funny turkey hat), the We Know Products team wishes you a very happy Thanksgiving!

Keep Comfort Within Arm’s Reach With NAIPO’s New Handheld Massager

Published

on

If you go on Amazon and search for “handheld massager,” you will find dozens and dozens of clones of the same $100 massage gun. My immediate reaction upon seeing this was that there is no longer any innovation in the massager industry. Instead of actually investing in R&D to come up with more advanced ways to help customers, massager companies seem content to copy one another and compete on price.

One company gives me hope. That company is NAIPO, a well-known massager brand whose stated mission is to help people all over the world “Find Well-being.” NAIPO’s latest handheld massager features a brand new design that provides added value for the user. While it is still a percussion massager, its sleek comfort-grip handle grants access to otherwise inaccessible areas of the body. It also features 5 interchangeable massager heads so that you are able to treat each acupuncture point with the best possible massage.

This attention to detail creates a truly customizable experience. After a workout or just a long day at work, you can choose from 5 different speed levels and 5 different working modes, from gentle relaxation to vigorous, deep-tissue massage. By virtue of the extended front grip, you can give exactly the right type of massage to previously neglected muscles all over your body.

A common complaint about percussion massagers is the noise level that can make it awkward or even impossible to use in public. The new NAIPO handheld massager is different. Unlike its competitors, it provides amazing results with only a single massage head. This has the twin effect of reducing noise levels and making it lighter and therefore less unwieldy, a huge plus especially for older users.

The NAIPO XF-5120 handheld massager will be available for purchase soon, and at $52.99 it is inarguably cheaper than similar products on the market. You get your very own either at NAIPO’s own storefront on naipocare.com or on Walmart.com. Stay tuned for more updates!

This Amazon Space Heater Will Help You Weather Dropping Temperatures

Published

on

The most famous quote from Ernest Hemingway’s novel The Sun Also Rises is a character’s response to the question “How did you go bankrupt?”

“Two ways,” Mike said, “gradually then suddenly.”

Such a description could also be applied to the weather so far this autumn. The temperatures where I live did gradually drop from the 90s to the 80s to the 70s and so forth, but the transition to daily temperatures in the 40s still feels sudden. I have not even had time yet to locate all my winter clothes.

All this is to say, I found myself in immediate need of warmth. Apparently, I am not the only one. One of the bestsellers on Amazon right now is this space heater:

Amazon Basics 1500W Oscillating Ceramic Heater with Adjustable Thermostat, Black — $30.96

A space heater has become a necessity in our current age of working from home. When you alternate time spent in your bedroom, your office, and your living room, ideally you want the heat to come with you from place to place. The Amazon Basics space heater (equipped with a carrying handle for easy transport) makes that a reality.

The official We Know Products recommendation is that you go with the oscillating version, which at only $4 more than the standard is 100% worth it.
