All those outdoor and garden chores and tasks are a whole lot easier thanks to a host of lawn care tools and machines that are designed to save you time, money, and backaches.

Types of Tools

Types of Tools

Name a landscape care task and there's likely a tool or machine that can help you accomplish it in less time and with less effort. That's true for flower enthusiasts as well as people who just love their big stretch of green lawn. And care tools and machines come in a range of budgets, sizes, and power potential, which means you can find something to help you no matter how small your outdoor space. As you review what needs to be done, take a look at axes, blowers, chippers and shredders, composting bins, cultivators and tillers, edgers, carts and utility wagons, hedge trimmers, hoes, lawn mowers, insect and pest control, log splitters, picks, post-hole diggers, pots and planters, pressure washers, pruners, rain barrels, rakes, saws, shovels and spades, soil testers, trowels, weeders, and wheelbarrows.

Product Features

Product Features

Although the range of outdoor and garden care tools and machines is incredibly diverse, they have similar product features that affect both their ease of use and longevity. For example, both a rake and a chipper can handle smaller or larger tasks, depending on their respective sizes. One blower will differ dramatically from another in use based on the source of power. And a lawn mower may not be right for your yard if the engine capacity is too small or too large. Here's a short overview of those product features: power source, size, and engine capacity.

Power Source

For tools and machines that have engines, power will be provided in one of three ways: battery, gas, or electricity. The method will affect the flexibility of the tool.

Size

Every garden care item, from the simplest of handheld tools to the largest of machines, has a size and capacity that influence what it can do in the garden.

Engine Capacity

For a machine that has an engine, the horsepower is the factor that determines the speed and strength of its use.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Although outdoor care tools and machines offer convenience, they also have purchase considerations that impact how much use you get out of the item and how much hassle you may experience during its lifetime. That means there are factors to bear in mind before committing to a particular outdoor care item. For example, a riding lawnmower may make quick work of your outdoor commitments, but if you don't have space to store it, the mower will be an investment you cannot protect. Review storage, maintenance/upkeep, and material and construction before you dive into any purchase. Here's a quick overview to consider.

Storage

The largest lawn mower may seem like a great tool, but if you have no spot to store it safely, you will not be able to maintain it. Make sure you have space in your garage or another outdoor building.

Maintenance/Upkeep

Every garden care tool needs a bit of maintenance or upkeep. Simple hoes need to be cleaned after use and oiled; mowers need regular engine care to stay in tip-top shape.

Material and Construction

Before you make a purchase, get a feel for the garden care tool or machine. How does it feel in your hands? Is it comfortable to sit in or carry? Does it exhibit well-made construction?
