Now that Spring is here and the flowers are blooming, our lawns are doing most of the hard work in staying green and luscious all on their own. Although, the Spring months do mean faster growth of grass, and unwanted weeds and well! Stay on top of your lawns with this ultimate list of lawn equipment that every home needs.
A lawn mower is an essential addition to keep your lawns looking their best. With options for petrol or electric, there is something to suit your yard size and needs! If you live on a lot of land, or even if you just want to get the job done quicker, you can opt for a ride on mower instead. With regular servicing, such as an oil change, and air filter change and an oiling and greasing of parts, your lawn mower will survive through years of work. Here at HomeTask, we recommend giving your mower a hose down and removing all grass from the wheels and underneath the mower after every use to keep it in tip top shape. You’ll also want to have a fuel can on hand, with a little box of extras like spark plugs.
To mulch or not to mulch your garden beds? Mulch of course! This improves the water retention of the soil, meaning your plants will be able to absorb nutrients much more easily. It’s also a great weed suppressant, so you can focus on planting instead of pulling. It prevents soil compaction and holds off pests like slugs, and at the end of the season it can be turned into the soil to add superfood for your next years’ crop!
No one likes sore and calloused hands from pulling that tough, stubborn grass from the fence line. Whipper snipper it away with a few simple motions. We also recommend a regular whipper snipper service, and always check the lines before and after use! Don’t forget to keep some extras on hand, like trimming wire.
A manual edger is a sure fire way to keep your paths looking prim and tidy. Keep the strays off the paths and garden beds giving a manicured look overall. Your lawns will look professionally done in no time!
The birds are doing their thing this season, building nests and picking goodies from trees – and it’s likely to make a mess of your lawn. Save time with a good quality leaf blower to clear out the mess.
General Must Haves
You’ll need a rake, eye and ear protection, gloves, a shovel, a spade and a trowel for just about anything in the garden. Whether it’s weeding, general maintenance or a bit of a ‘fix-up’, these useful tools will always come in handy.
