Rock gardens provide the opportunity for a garden without over-filling your yard with plants. This gives the illusion of a larger space and still leaves an adequate area to sit and enjoy your plants.

A gel-like super glue is usually easier to work with on rocks, but the classic liquid super glue will do the job as well. Squeeze out just a dot of glue onto each rock where they will meet. Applying too much glue won`t make the bond any stronger—but it very well might make a stick mess!

ANSWER : Oooh boy, I know you bent the shaft, but why it is blowing oil out the carb, I don’t know if I would even bother with the blade, you could go buy the same mower, then you would have some parts.

A friend has a poulan push mower and hit a pretty big rock with it, and now when you pull the pull cord to start it, it pulls hard and will not start. It is not the flywheel key sheered off, that is fine, so I am wondering if there is something else it could be or if the drive shaft got bent and it needs to be scrapped?
ANSWER : Hi, it sounds like it’s most likely that drive shaft. If the drive shaft gets dirty or dry you’ll get the same problem with the pull cord being hard to pull, so more than likely that shaft got bent somehow and now it won’t pull.If you turn the mower over, can you turn the blade by hand? Maybe you can see if the shaft is bent as you try to turn it.

Does the Toro self propelled have problems in rough areas . I have heard the crankshaft can be broken.
ANSWER : How do you define rough areas? If you are mowing a rocky area then, yes, there could be a problem. Otherwise, you should not have a problem, even if the mower is set too low to the ground for high grass or thick brush. The crankshaft does not break that easily, my friend; you would have to hit a big rock with the blade with enough force to break that crankshaft.
