What's the meaning of lawn supplies?

Please explain in detail.

I encountered this sentence in TOEIC questions.

  • Welcome to ELL.SE. Context is essential to meaning; a lawn means something different to a gardener, a textile manufacturer, and a microbiologist. While it's most likely to be the first meaning here, you should still edit the post to state where you encountered this phrase.

Anything pertaining to the maintenance of a lawn(grass). So, lawn mower, fertilizer, fertilizer spreader, sprinklers, hoses, trimmers/edgers, insecticide etc. That really is all there is to it! A Google search of this term will provide you with an expansive list.

  • The term 'lawn supplies' is considered a word that explains it's self. So "that's really all there is to it!" Means "it's not more complex than that!"

  • -1 for "A Google search of this term will provide you with an expansive list." I just Googled this term, and I got a list of businesses that sell lawn supplies, nothing about the term itself. Moreover, Googling a term is something that an OP should do even before the question is asked (and, preferably, telling us what they found), not something recommended in an answer.

  • Make that image a little smaller and put it in your answer, and I'll happily delete my comment and reverse my downvote. My result looked like this.
