When springtime comes in Minnesota, your property undoubtedly needs some work. After the snow thaws, debris will speckle your yard, and your grass will have turned a noticeable shade of brown. What’s more, spring is the season to get new yard projects underway so that by summertime you can enjoy the fruits of your labor. When you fire up the yard machines for the first time this spring, save yourself time and energy by going about it the right way. Here is a brief checklist from your friends at Minnesota Equipment.
Take Care of the Basics
Step one: take care of the big things first. Any broken tree branches or other large pieces of debris should be removed before any of the smaller scatterings are addressed. These can be discarded in the woods, piled up and burned, given to a hauler to dispose of or “recycled” in a wood chipper.
Next, take this opportunity to shape and trim your trees, shrubs, hedges, and other plants that may have been altered by the snow and wind. There is a huge variety of cutting and trimming tools available, so after surveying your property, consult an equipment provider for in-depth capability information.
Most importantly, spring is the time to get your lawn back in shape. Rake old leaves, your fresh trimmings, and any smaller debris away from plants and off your grass to allow fresh growth to begin. Fertilize the newly exposed grass, and finish off your garden beds with some edges and mulch. This will help ensure you have a long and healthy growing season. A few simple steps in the early spring can save you a major headache further down the road, so set up your lawn for success by keeping it clean and healthy.
Work with an Equipment Rep – and Get Moving
After the basic cosmetic details have been attended to, now the real work starts. Projects such as removing old stumps, moving boulders, mowing and aerating, and planting new seed can now begin.
When addressing these spring upkeep tasks that require some serious torque, having the right tools makes all the difference. Consult a detailed knowledge center to determine which specific piece of equipment is right for you before you make a buying decision.
