What landscaping equipment do you really need?

As with any DIY project you might be doing in your back yard.  There are a few integral pieces of landscaping equipment that you simply cannot do without.

There are other pieces of equipment that are great to have but not absolutely necessary.

Buying verse renting landscaping equipment

Some of the landscaping equipment can be quite expensive. If you are going to be doing something that is not one of your regular landscaping jobs then you might want to consider renting the landscaping equipment you need rather than spending your money buying it.

What is the essential equipment

Most people have landscaping equipment without even realizing that is what it is.

Go out to your shed and see if you have things like :

  • fertilizer spreaders
  • other applicators

Most people don’t think of these types of equipment as landscaping equipment.  Although that is exactly what they are.

Using landscaping equipment properly

If you are spreaders and applicators laying around, congratulations.  You have the right equipment? but do you use it?

If you do not use these applicators you should start. By using these kinds of things regularly, you can make your lawn so much prettier and healthier.

Your lawn will be lush and full, with out suffering from weeds.

Scaling up your equipment

If you are planning on doing a lot of work on your yard you are going to need to get yourself some irrigation tools.

Which is important when you are going to be planting some new plants or trees. You need to have all of your living shrubbery and flowers getting the right amount of water at all times.

In order to get this system working right you might also want to invest in some landscaping equipment like timers and sprinklers. This way you know that your yard is getting watered when it needs it even when you are not home.

This is especially great for when you leave town.  Also if your local council has enforced water restrictions, about how much water can be used each week.

Where to buy or rent

Research is key, spend the time on the internet.  Look for what you need to do the job.  As we said about if you are not going to use it all the time then rent.  There are plenty of equipment rental business you can go to on a weekend.  Business like Herc rentals have a wide range of equipment.

If you only have one stump you might want to remove.  Rent the equipment don’t buy it.
