Working in your yard can require a variety of tools. Knowing which tools to use can be helpful in getting the job done quickly and efficiently. Here are some of the most commonly used lawn tools and when to use them.
- Broom- A broom is commonly used outdoors. A stiff broom can be used to not only sweep patios and walkways, but it can also be used to sweep grass trimmings, leaves and top dressing off lawns.
- Rake - There are different kinds of rakes to use for different purposes. A leveling rake is used to level soil. This can be done when preparing a yard for seed or to lay sod. A spring tined rake is used to collect leaves and twigs in your yard.
- Trimmer - When you mow your lawn, it can be difficult to get the edges. String trimmers use nylon strings that rotate at high speeds to cut grass that the mower cannot reach. Edging shears can be used along the edge of your lawn to create a distinct separation of grass and soil.
- Lawn Mower - For anyone with a grass yard, a lawn mower is a necessity. Depending on the size of your yard, different lawn mowers are available.
