Struggling with a Problem Lawn or Yard? Request a Lawn and Yard Care Intervention!

Mar 15, 2011, 07:00 ET from Briggs & Stratton Corporation

MILWAUKEE, March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Are you struggling with lawn and yard care?  Are the weeds growing but the grass isn't?  Maybe you're embarrassed by patchy grass and an overgrown landscape.  If so, it may be time for a yard care intervention, and a chance to grow your confidence and a better looking lawn and landscape.

This spring and summer, the Briggs & Stratton Yard Doctor will roll up his sleeves and help homeowners confront their yard care demons with an on-the-ground intervention to bring three of America's neediest yards back into their neighborhoods' good graces.  Yard Doctor Trey Rogers, Ph.D., and his team will spend a day providing advice and hands-on help to transform the winning homeowners' yards into points of pride.  In addition to a yard makeover, the winners will receive new lawn care equipment and $1,500 for supplies.

Homeowners can apply for an intervention for themselves or they can call out a neighbor, family member or friend in need of help.  If you enter someone else, you must secure their permission first.  Each "application" should creatively explain the yard care problems faced and why an intervention is necessary, using either a short video or up to four photos to show the yard.  Complete rules and entry guidelines can be found at

One yard will be selected each month from May through July by online voting.  Then, the Briggs & Stratton Yard Doctor will swoop in with a new lawn mower and pressure washer, cash for supplies and expert advice and hands-on help to relieve yard care suffering.  

Homeowners living with problem yards are invited to share their lawn and yard care problems at starting March 15.  Complete rules, as well as lots of yard care knowledge, can be found at
