Maintain Your Lawn

Lawn maintenance requires some tools to help you take care of it the right way. You want to make sure you chose ones that work for your type of lawn. Here are some guidelines that can help.

You Need a Lawnmower

There are all kinds of lawn mowers out there and they come in all shapes and sizes. The cost ranges are wide as well. Make sure you do your homework before you buy anything. There are a lot of things to take into consideration when buying a lawnmower such as the size of the lawn and your budget. The type of ground you will be cutting is also a factor. Your local hardware store or turf grower can help you make a good decision.

You Need a Weeding Brush

This makes applying Glypho easy. It stops weeding in its tracks by allowing you to apply only where it is needed. This will take care of those weeds that seem to pop up randomly overnight.

Other Things That Can Help

An all-purpose sprayer is a very hand thing to have for thins like spraying weed killer. Some type of lawn aerator is recommended. If you have a small clay-based lawn you might only need aerating sandals. If it is bigger then lawn aerators are the way to go. Keep a set of measuring spoons handy so you can mix in the right amount. A meter that allows you test the pH of your lawn along with the light and moisture levels can be a really good idea. You can even use this for indoor plants. Of course, you will need a pH testing kit too.

Hoses, Attachments & Sprinklers

No tool is more needed in lawn care than the hose. There are all kinds of them, from regular garden hoses to soaker hoses. A metal reel to keep them from tangling is a good investment. A sprinkler system that will allow you to really soak the lawn is a handy tool as well. Roller – spikes and smooth

Rollers and Edgers

If you have an uneven lawn you will want to make sure it gets levelled out, especially when putting down new turf. This helps not only with the look of the land but the drainage as well. It can help get rid of air pockets and helps push roots down deep. A rotary edger helps you trim those hard areas along walkways and paths.
