Lawn tools to get your yard ready for spring

March 7, 2024

As winter starts to fade away and the promise of warmer days lingers in the air, homeowners across the country are gearing up for spring. It's that time of year when the garden beckons and the lawn begins to stir from its winter slumber. But before you can sit back and enjoy your outdoor oasis, there's work to be done. Fortunately, with the right tools in hand, preparing your lawn for spring can be a breeze. Here's a roundup of the best lawn tools to get your home ready for the season ahead:

  • Lawn Mower: Let's start with the basics. A reliable lawn mower is essential for keeping your grass trimmed and tidy throughout the spring and summer months. Whether you prefer a traditional gas-powered mower or a more eco-friendly electric model, make sure it's in good working condition before you tackle your first mow of the season.
  • Our Ada Villiage Hardware store is the perfect place to grab your Stihl, Toro, and other top-brand lawnmowers, snowblowers, and other yard tools to get the job done right—and if your machine stops working, call us to get on our repair schedule.
  • String Trimmer: For those hard-to-reach areas around fences, flower beds, and trees, a string trimmer is indispensable. These handy tools make quick work of edging and trimming, giving your lawn a polished look.
  • Leaf Rake: As the last of the winter leaves and debris make their way off your lawn, a sturdy leaf rake is your best friend. Choose one with flexible tines that can handle both wet and dry leaves without damaging your grass.
  • Lawn Edger: For clean, defined edges along sidewalks and driveways, a lawn edger is a must-have tool. It creates crisp lines that instantly elevate the appearance of your lawn and make maintenance easier throughout the season.
  • Garden Hoe: Don't overlook the importance of soil preparation in achieving a lush, healthy lawn. A garden hoe is perfect for loosening compacted soil, removing weeds, and incorporating compost or fertilizer into your garden beds.
  • Hand Trowel: For smaller gardening tasks like transplanting seedlings or digging up weeds, a hand trowel is indispensable. Look for one with a comfortable grip and a durable, rust-resistant blade.
  • Hose and Sprinkler: Adequate hydration is key to a thriving lawn, especially as temperatures rise in the spring. Invest in a quality hose and sprinkler system to ensure your grass gets the water it needs to stay green and vibrant.
  • Mulching Mower Blade: Upgrade your lawn mower with a mulching blade to return valuable nutrients to your soil as you mow. Mulching blades finely chop grass clippings, allowing them to decompose quickly and enrich the soil with essential organic matter. Our Ada Hardware location will service your lawn mower and help upgrade it! 
  • Pruning Shears: Finally, don't forget about your trees, shrubs, and other landscaping features. Pruning shears are essential for maintaining healthy growth and shaping your plants for optimal aesthetics.

With these essential lawn tools in your arsenal, you'll be well-equipped to tackle any springtime lawn care task that comes your way. So dust off your gardening gloves, roll up your sleeves, and get ready to usher in the season of renewal with a lawn that's primed for perfection. Happy gardening!
