3. Toro Lawn Striping System
If you have one of those families who love to crowd around the TV for football and other sports games, the Toro® Lawn Striping System might be the perfect gift! The Toro Lawn Striping System is a simple attachment the hooks up to the back of your lawn mower and “stripes” your lawn as you mow by bending the grass blades in a different direction with each pass.
The sun then reflects differently off of the bent grass blades that are facing different directions, which alters the coloring of the grass to a human eye. It will appear lighter or darker depending on the direction that you bend the blades. For more information, read How to Stripe Your Lawn Like a Sports Field.

Buy your lawn lover a tray of grass plugs to patch up any damaged or bare spots throughout the lawn! A grass plug is an individual turf plant that is grown in a tray; their size can vary, but generally an individual plug measures anywhere between 1.5–3 inches in length/width.
When purchased in trays and planted between 9–12 inches apart, they will continue to spread and fill in over time, creating a solid ground cover of your preferred grass type. Grass plugs are typically used in one of two instances: to repair damaged areas of a lawn, or to establish a lawn when sod or seed is not available or not practical.
Palmetto® St. Augustine in particular demonstrates superior shade, cold, frost, heat and drought tolerance. This versatile turfgrass is a standard for many regions with over 1 billion sq. ft. sold. Plugs are a great way to fill bare spots or test the performance of a turfgrass variety.
