Spring in New England is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to start thinking about lawn care. Whether you’re a first-time homeowner this spring or have been in your house for years, it’s important to have all the tools you need to take care of your lawn. And what better place to get all those tools than your local hardware store in Sudbury, Town Line Hardware?
Unsure where to start? Here’s a list of all the tools you’ll need to take care of your lawn.
Small & Basic Gardening Tools
- Garden trowel and fork: If you have any gardens or flowerbeds in your yard, getting in there and removing weeds and debris is a must. To avoid damaging your plants, using small tools like a trowel and fork is the best way to care for your gardens.
- Shears and loppers: Having the right tools to trim trees and bushes makes caring for those plants so much easier. You can prolong the life of your plants and keep them healthy by removing dead branches in the spring.
- Hoe and rake: If you need to clear leaves or debris from larger areas, a rake or hoe is a very useful tool to have.
Wheelbarrow & Shovel
Lawn care and gardening often involve moving things from one area to another, such as plants, compost, and leaves. A wheelbarrow is the easiest way to get those things from one spot in your yard to another. And you’ll want a good shovel to put in new plants or transplant what you already have.
Large & Powered Lawn Tools
- Leaf blower: Even though you can clear your leaves with a rake, it takes a lot of time and effort, especially if you have a big yard. Leaf blowers make clearing your yard in the spring a lot easier. And if you don’t like using gas-powered tools, there are also several eclectic blowers on the market.
- Lawnmower: This one’s a no-brainer; if you have a lawn, you need a lawnmower. If you think yours is on its last legs, now is the time to get a new one!
- Aerator: If you want to level up your lawn care, an aerator is a great tool to rent or buy. It loosens up the soil and lets the air flow through it, helping your grass to grow.
