Caring for your Most Important Yard Tools

Keeping your yard looking its best requires you to have the right tools for the job. Part of having the right tools for the job is making sure that they are working their best. Keep these tips to care for yard tools in mind to ensure that your garden tools are working their best to make your yard as beautiful as possible.

  • Garden hose. Your garden cannot flourish without water, which is why it is so important to keep your garden hose working the best. Make sure to drain and recoil your hose after every use. If your hose constantly gets kinks, it may be time to invest in a new one since kinks are a sign of a low quality hose.
  • Digging and cutting tools. These are some of the easiest tools to keep working properly. Make sure to clean off the tools with water and a soft brush after each use. Also use motor oil to keep them from rusting when they are not in use.
  • Lawn mower. To keep your lawn looking its best, it is important to make sure that your lawn mower is in tip-top shape. Take it to a lawn mower shop for a tune up at least once a year, or you can do it yourself. Make sure to change the spark plug, air filter, and oil, and check to make sure that the blades are sharp.
  • String trimmer. String trimmers are essential to keeping your whole yard looking its best, since they can reach places that the lawn mower cannot. If you have a gas model, make sure to keep the air vents clear of any debris, and replace the spark plug at least every year. Electric models require less upkeep, and only need periodic checks to make sure everything is secure.
