Now that we've hurdled past Halloween and have landed at the front of the Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday season, we wanted to highlight a few to-do's as we move toward hosting all of our family and friends for the festivities. Here are four simple steps that you can begin now in order to save time in the weeks...
It’s that time of year where the leaves are bursting forth in their final peak of color, followed by their slow decent right down onto our prized lawns and landscapes. While we love the change of scenery and pop of color that the changing leaves provide, we dread the clean-up. To help you with your own lawn clean-up this season, we’ve made a list of the top 5 tools we think every home owner should have on hand!
Powerful Leaf Blower
There’s no better way to save time – and your back! – than investing in a good leaf blower. With a market full of quieter, electric models, there’s no need to fret over fuel either.
Have you ever tried to stuff a garbage bag full of all those leaves you’ve just gathered, only to find that the top of the bag just won’t stay open long enough to drop everything in? We know the frustration. That’s why we are huge fans of these Tip Bags that can be found at Gardener’s Supply Company. The bags stay upright and open, making it possible to complete the task without an extra set of hands.
When you have an entire yard to rake, that last thing you want to spend your time doing is unclogging bunches of leaves from your rake. We’ve taken a liking to True Temper’s Clog Free Rake. With it’s closed tips, leaves won’t clog between the spindles and you can save a little extra time on your yardwork.
When it comes to rakes, a Clog Free rake isn’t the only tool we recommend having on hand. This Shrub Rake from Ames gardening company has a smaller, compact head, making it possible to fit into all those tight, hard to access places. Not to mention, it saves you from having to get on your hands a knees just to reach into those crevices and pull the leaves out.
We’re not entirely sure who first invented these amazing hand tools, but whoever did deserves a standing ovation! Nothing speeds up the leaf removal process like Gardener’s Supply Company’s leaf scoops. As an added bonus, they only cost around $15, which means you get more bang for your buck.
We hope that as the leaves start dropping, this go-to list of garden tools keeps you sane while maintaining a gorgeous lawn and property!
