JASON SCOTT
If you have decided to do your own landscaping maintenance, you are going to need the right tools for the job. Proper lawn care, trimming trees and bushes, tools for gardens and flower beds, and other miscellaneous implements are needed for making your property look its best. Be prepared to spend around $5,000 to $6,000 if you are starting from scratch when buying landscaping maintenance equipment.

 

If you need lawn care tools, the following list should be helpful when you go to purchase these essential items for a healthy turf:

  • Lawnmower
  • Spreader or sprayer (for fertilizing the grass)
  • Edger
  • Lawn roller

For trimming trees and bushes, you should consider buying the following tools:

  • Pruning saw
  • Hedge shears
  • Pruners (with a sheath)
  • Loppers
  • Blade sharpener

Your gardens and flower beds need maintenance too, so you will also need the following digging tools to keep those parts of your yard looking good:

  • Spade
  • Shovel
  • Spading fork
  • Pick
  • Hoe
  • Dandelion tool
  • Mattock

Other tools that you use inside your home can be helpful too. A hammer, measuring and marking tools, saws, drills, level, square, and plumb bob may come in handy when doing landscaping maintenance or planning new projects for your yard.

After considering all the work and expense that goes into maintaining your yard, you might change your mind about doing the work yourself. It may be cost effective to hire a landscape maintenance company to do the work for you. Look into local companies for the expertise you may not have in caring for your yard.
