​Ariens Company has donated a new Ariens® Max Zoom​ mower to the Rotary Botanical Gardens​ of Janesville, Wis. The zero-turn mower with a 48-inch mowing deck will assist volunteers with lawn upkeep by providing efficient, time-saving mowing.​

"We recognize the important work done by the staff and volunteers at the Rotary Gardens of connecting people with outdoor spaces," says Dan Ariens, Chairman and CEO of Ariens Company. "Volunteer time is valuable and this new mower should allow people who donate their time to mow the grounds more efficiently."

Volunteers at the Rotary Botanical Gardens mow six acres of grass on the 20 acre property.  The company also provided a donation of anvil pruners and watering wands through its Ben Meadows®​ brand of outdoor gear and supplies.

"On behalf of the Ariens Company employees in Janesville, we extend our appreciation to the Rotary Gardens and to everyone involved in maintaining this community focal point," says Ginger King, President of Ariens Specialty Brands.

Ariens Company employs 200 people in Janesville who work for the company's direct marketing brands that distribute outdoor supplies and gear to professionals who work niche outdoor segments such as agriculture, horticulture, forest management, and wildland firefighting.

CW Mowers of Janesville provided set-up and delivery of the equipment.​
