It’s time to start spring landscape maintenance, and it’s crucial to have the right tools to get the job done! Before you make any plans to start cleaning your lawn this season, check out our guide to ensure you have all of the necessary tools.
Pruning clippers should be in every homeowner’s landscape maintenance kit. Proper pruning is essential for maintaining fullness in your lawn’s bushes and shrubs, and putting off pruning can lead to greenery that doesn’t add much visual appeal to your yard. Be sure to invest in a high-quality hand-held pruning tool to ensure they get the job done and last for years.
Watering your lawn is very important, and a water timer gives busy homeowners some peace of mind. By setting an automatic water timer, you never have to worry about your grass not getting enough water. It’s perfect for times when you’re away from your home for a few days, as you won’t come back to brown grass patches. There are various models on the market so you can find the perfect timer that will disperse the right amount of water each time you turn on the hose.
Every lawn needs a high-quality sprinkler for the spring! Oscillating sprinklers are great choices, as they can be used to cover over 3,000 square feet of your property. You may not need a sprinkler all year-round in your area, but you will definitely need one in the spring and each time you throw down new grass seed. Now that it is officially spring, it’s a good idea to apply new grass seed to your lawn. Be sure to water in new grass seed for about ten to fifteen minutes each morning for at least two weeks.
Hose and Nozzles
If you’ve had your hose for a long time and it’s in need of an upgrade, early spring is the right time to take care of it. It’s crucial to invest in a good quality hose and nozzle that doesn’t leak, as it will save you a lot of water and money. Cheaper hoses will not last more than a year, so be sure to spend a little more on a high-quality hose to save more time and money in the long run!
