5 Tools You Need for a Beautiful Lawn & Garden
Warmer weather is finally here, and April showers mean that soon, plants will be growing and flowers will be blooming at a rapid pace - are you prepared? If you want to maintain a beautiful lawn and garden, you can’t let it grow wild on it’s own and expect great results. However, showing up to the hardware or garden store will leave you feeling overwhelmed if you don’t enter with a plan. Here are the top five tools you’ll need to keep a beautiful lawn and garden this summer:
Lawn mower. Unless you’re paying someone to mow your lawn each week throughout the summer, the most essential tool you need to have is a lawn mower. Be sure to do your research - there are many choices from a wide range of prices. A smaller yard may require something simple, whereas a big yard that will see much more use out of the lawn mower may require something more heavy-duty. Don’t forget to keep the blades sharp for clean cuts and an attractive lawn.
A rake. A rake isn’t just for clearing out leaves in the fall, though that will help keep your lawn looking fresh each year. It can also be used to create clean lines on gravel paths, clear old plants out of your garden beds and much more. Don’t forget, some rakes can also be used to help dethatch your lawn.
Shears. If you’ve invested your time and money into good landscaping, good shears, whether small pruning ones or larger ones for shrubs, will help you protect that investment, and keep it looking great.
A garden hose. A quality garden hose with different attachments goes a long way...literally! Purchase a lawn hose that will reach all of the plants you need to water, and get the perfect nozzle that will allow you to change the pressure and spray pattern of the water. Make sure it is made of quality material and won't wear away and lose it’s structure from sitting in the sun or snow.
A great landscaping designer. A great landscaping designer. Of course, a beautiful lawn and garden won’t appear on its own. The best tool you can have is a great landscaping company by your side to help bring your vision to life.
