5 Pieces of Landscaping Equipment You’ll Need For Summer Maintenance, Harris, North Carolina

Summer is more than a time to relax and enjoy the warm weather. It’s also a time of growth for your lawn, garden, and plant life, which means you’ll have to put on some gloves and do some landscaping maintenance, too. You can always hire a landscaping company to do the job for you, or you can save a little money by simply using some elbow grease and landscaping equipment

5 Pieces of Landscaping Equipment You’ll Need for Summer Maintenance

1. Lawn Mower

A lawn mower is the most important equipment you’ll need for a healthy lawn. Many types are available, including mowers with attachments such as mulchers and side catchers. Gas- and electric-powered push mowers are available for small lawns and riding mowers for large yards.

2. Lawn Edgers

An edge trimmer or lawn edger creates a clean boundary between a lawn and other surfaces, such as a paved, concreted, graveled, or asphalted area. There are wheeled and stick models as well as gasoline, manual, and electric-powered edgers.

3. Trimmers

landscaping equipmentTrimmers, also known as weed eaters, use flexible monofilament lines instead of blades for cutting grass near and around objects. They come in gas, cordless, and electric models. Hedge trimmers use blades to trim bushes in a straight, precise line. 

4. Pruning Tools

Pruners are one-handed tools used to trim leaves and branches from flowers and small trees. Loopers are two-handed tools used for the same purpose. If you have bushes or small trees, pruning them will improve the appearance of your yard while making the plant life healthier.

5. Sprayers

Sprayers allow you to apply water, insecticides, and plant food to your flowers and garden. Wear a backpack model or use a hand sprayer for an effortless application.
