Once the snow melts at the end of winter, you'll have a number of outdoor projects—such as pruning your trees and removing leaves—that need to be completed to get your yard into shape for spring. To do that, you'll need a variety of outdoor power tools. Below are some of the most common and useful ones for refurbishing your property after winter.
Outdoor Power Tools You'll Need This Spring
Winter is hard on trees. Heavy ice and snow accumulation cause limbs to crack and high winds can topple whole trees. A chainsaw is the tool you need to carve up deadfall and remove dead branches before they can fall and injure a passerby.
2. Leaf Blower
A power leaf blower is essential for efficiently removing leaves remaining from the previous fall. Raking by hand is time-consuming work. A leaf blower gets the job done quickly, and you’ll be comfortable the entire time. You can also use one to remove debris from your driveway and walkways.
A reliable gas or electric lawn mower is one of the most important outdoor power tools for the spring and summer. Taking care of your grass improves your curb appeal, and using a quality mower to handle it speeds up the work. A power mower harnesses engine power to move the unit forward, so all you need to do is walk behind and guide it. A riding mower is ideal for large yards and makes the work even easier.
Hydration is crucial for plants to stay green and lush. You can buy a number of types of sprinklers to make watering your lawn easy and convenient. Oscillators spray numerous tiny streams slowly back and forth, while rotary sprinklers cover 360 degrees. Drip emitters are ideal for flower beds and vegetable gardens.
