Look after your lawn
To provide your lawn with the care it needs, requires some basic knowledge and of course some basic gardening tools. Once you know the basics and put in some effort, your lawn will be the centrepiece of your garden, a beautiful space to sit and enjoy the atmosphere that you created! At Rushfields plant centre you'll find everyting you need for a beautiful and healthy lawn. Besides that, we can always help you out with some personal advice whenever you have any questions about lawn care and on how to choose your tools.
The tools that you need for a healthy lawn
Lawn care is way easier with the right tools. Luckily, we've got just what you need at Rushfields Plant centre. The essential lawn tools that you need to get started are:
- Lawnmower: the number one tool for a pretty lawn
- Half-moon edger: helps to create even edges
- Wire rake: both for raking up autumn leaves and for scarifying the lawn.
- Garden fork: for aerating lawns and punching drainage holes
These are the very basic needs, but of course they have some characteristics that fit one garden better than the other. Do you want to mow the grass manually, or automatically for example? For all of the tools we have a wide variety available, to match to your wishes and your garden's needs.
How do you choose the right tools for your lawn?
The basic needs are clear, but how do you choose the right tools? For example when it comes to a lawnmower, there's a wide variety of options. Push mowers are practical and environmentally friendly for tiny lawns. Electric mowers make short work for larger lawns, and robow lawn mowers do the work while you focus on something else. Depending on the time you want to spend on lawn care, the size of your lawn, and budget, you can choose the lawn mower that works best for your wishes. A half moon edger is pretty straightforward, available in different sizes. It's a great tool to blade slice overgrown edges to a more pleasing finish. The choice for a wire rake could differ when it comes to size and material, which depends on ergonomic requirements and of course on your own preferences, the same counts for garden forks. If you need any advice on choosing the right tools for your lawn and your personal preferences, feel free to ask our staff for any advice.
