Have you ever spent the morning mowing lawns and pulling leaves only to find yourself sprawled out in the afternoon moaning in pain? If so, youre part of Club Pain. It consists of legions of Americans who suffer from body aches after manual labor. But what if you could turn in your Club Pain membership card and spend the afternoon relaxing in the hammock instead? Would you do it?
Well what if we told you that turning in your Club Pain membership card could be as easy as grabbing tarpaulins? Its true. Tarpaulins help take the back-breaking pain out of lawn work and well tell you how. Lets begin with why manual labor can leave so many of us writhing in pain. It all boils down to body mechanics. Our muscles are only meant to withstand certain weight and inactivity can cut down on that threshold too.
By using tarpaulins to haul away lawn debris and complete other tasks, we effectively take some of that extra weight off of our muscles. So they dont have to work so hard or get stretched into directions theyre not normally meant to go. Plus, the tarpaulins may protect our bodies from the ground and all that the soil contains. Examples include dampness, biting insects, rocks, parasites, bacteria, sticks and other items that may cause physical ailments.
Tarpaulins meant for landscaping use some in a number of thicknesses and boast multiple features. If your property is very overgrown, wed recommend using the super heavy-duty variety. Previously maintained lawns, on the other hand, may only require economy tarps. They are generally on the thin side, thus best suited for light duty tasks like dragging flower bulbs from one end of a planting bed to another.
