Yard work isn't just dad's work. Single female homeowners and more than half of married women do their yard work, so why not make it easier on yourselves? Here are some lightweight home improvement products to help you get the job done.
Given that 20 percent of recent homebuyers are single females and 53 percent of married women are responsible for basic household maintenance and repair, home improvement has become another responsibility for moms everywhere. As the days get shorter and the leaves fall, it's time for autumn yard work and preparing the house for winter. These lightweight, female-friendly home improvement products from WORX can make these outdoor tasks easier for women everywhere.
