There are certain tools that every homeowner should have for proper upkeep of their lawn. Whether you want to have a lush green lawn during the summer months, want to have your lawn free of leaves in the fall or anything in between, it is important to have the proper equipment on hand to have a yard that will be the envy of the neighborhood.
#1. Lawn Mower
The first and most obvious lawn care tool you will need is a lawn mower. No matter if you prefer a push or riding lawn mower, it’s essential that you have a reliable mower to keep grass from growing too high. Regularly mowing your lawn will not only have it looking its best, but it will also promote stronger grass, will help grass grow evenly and can even assist with pest prevention.
#2. String Trimmer
Also known as a weed eater, a string trimmer will get to those hard to reach areas that your lawn mower can’t quite get at. A string trimmer is easy to use and can help clean up grass around the base of trees, along the edge of walkways, patios and more.
Often overlooked, a spreader is perfect for laying grass seed and fertilizer evenly throughout your lawn. Whether you just had a new home built and your lawn is nonexistent, or you have a dry/patchy lawn, a hand-held or wheeled spreader is the perfect tool to give you a lush looking lawn in no time.
#4. Hose/Sprinkler System
Once you have laid down grass seed and fertilizer, you need to make sure it is getting the right amount of water. This of course depends on the weather, but it’s important to regularly water your lawn during drier months. This can either be achieved with a hose or a convenient sprinkler system that can be set to work on a timer at certain points of the day.
#5. Leaf Blower
When it comes to lawn care in the fall, there’s no better tool than a leaf blower. A leaf blower will allow you to quickly and conveniently move leaves off of your lawn and tidily pile them up for removal. If you prefer a more traditional method of leaf cleanup, a leaf rake will do just fine.
