Essential Lawn and Garden Care
Tools While on a Budget

lawn and garden careIf you are planning to start a beautiful home garden, there are several things you must know in terms of your lawn and garden care. Since you are interested in taking care of your lawn on your own, there are several tools and pieces of equipment that you will need to invest money in. At the same time, you have to make sure that you buy the appropriate tools for the size of your garden.

Lawnmower: One of the most important things you need to invest money in is a good lawnmower. You will need to choose the right mower because if you just go for the one that looks better and performs the job faster, you will end up spending lots of money. When choosing a lawnmower, you have to remember that there is an extensive range and variety of mowers and sizes that they come in. Aside from this, they also have different prices which can fit just about any budget. The most common lawnmowers include:

  • Riding Mowers
  • Gas Push Mowers
  • Electric and Gas Hover Mowers
  • Electric and Gas Rotary Mowers
  • Manual and Electric Roller Mowers
  • Manual Side Wheel Mowers

If you do not have the budget for a new lawnmower, you can look for a secondhand mower which is still in good condition on eBay or Craigslist. It does not matter how it looks, as long as it performs a good job for your lawn and garden care.

Edge Trimmer: Also called a strimmer, this tool will help you tidy up your lawn's edges. The ideal trimmer that you should get is a powered trimmer which can be run by gas or electricity. However, if you do not have the budget for this, you can still opt for edging shears to keep everything neat and tidy.

Garden Fork: Another important tool you will need for your lawn maintenance is a garden fork. This is a good tool to use especially if you need to aerate the soil. Aerating means letting air enter the soil beneath your lawn. As you delve deeper into your lawn care, you will get to know how important aerating your lawn is.

Hose Reel and a Sprinkler: Before installing any hose reel or sprinklers in your lawn, make sure that your local laws permit it. As soon as you have verified this information, you can start looking for a sprinkler. There are lots of these available in your neighboring hardware specialty shops. They also come in different types and price ranges.

The above mentioned tools are just a few of the essentials that you will need for your lawn and garden care. As soon as you start becoming more serious about the task, you can then invest your money in other tools. Just remember that you always have an option!
