What tools do I need to maintain my lawn?
Are you wondering how you can maintain your lawn to ensure it looks healthy and aesthetically appealing? Or do you just want to reduce the time you spend maintaining your lawn? You need to purchase the right tools to maintain your lawn in order to get the best results with minimum effort.
Tips for choosing a lawnmower
It is vital to ensure that the lawn mower you purchase suits your needs. However, it is vital to understand that there are many models to choose from and numerous features to consider.
1. The size of your lawn
Larger lawns (more) than half an acre require a self propelled mower. This ensures that you won’t have to push the lawnmower over rough patches and hills yourself. You simply need to guide it. If you mow less than half an acre, a hand-operated mower is suitable. Choosing the right size is a good way of keeping fuel costs under control. Riding a mower is a great choice if your yard is more than half an acre.
2. Size of engine and mower deck
The size of your mower deck determines how much grass your lawn mower can cut at each pass. A large yard requires a lawn mower with a large lower deck and an engine of suitable power in order to get the job done efficiently and quickly.
3. Wheel size
This is another important consideration when choosing lawn mowers. The standard wheel size is good for lawns that are smooth and fairly flat. However, if your lawn has many hills and/or a rough terrain, you can make the job easier by opting for larger rear wheels.
Some of the new models of lawn mowers come with numerous extra features including robotic mowers, solar powered mowers and mowers that come with or without power cords. Understanding these features will help you determine the best fit for your lawn.
In order to keep your hedge neat, it is important to choose the right hedge trimmer. Some of the most important factors that should be taken into consideration when choosing hedging tools include the weight, size and the skill needed to operate the trimmer. Therefore, you must assess your specific needs and look for a hedge trimmer that will fulfill these needs.
Examine the branch size and overall size of your hedge, and determine the skill of the primary user. Although some lightweight hedge trimmers can be used by almost everyone effectively, others are considerably heavy and they require some strength to operate.
· You can use hand clippers if the hedge is small with medium or small branches that require just a few cuts to keep it neat and in shape. A hand trimmer is a practical choice for a small yard and hedges where trimmers are used sparingly.
· Powered trimmers are great for medium sized and large yards or hedges. While contain a rechargeable battery, some require a power outlet for the cord. However, it is critical to understand that electric hedge trimmers are typically lighter and smaller than gas powered hedge trimmers.
Ask about the availability of various replacement parts and servicing on gas powered or electric hedge trimmers.
