We at Eagle Rentals know your home is important to you, and we want to help you do what’s best for it. For many homeowners, taking care of the lawn is a key part of caring for the home itself—after all, you want every part of your home and yard to look great. Our team offers a wide range of high-quality lawn care equipment to help you keep your lawn healthy, and in this article, we’ll provide a brief overview of how to use equipment other than a standard mower.

Beyond Mowers: How to Use Lawn Care Equipment

•  String Trimmer. One piece of lawn care equipment that we recommend you use to achieve the best results is a string trimmer, also known as a weedwhacker. As the name states, these tools use a motor to swing a string around in a circle at high speeds. When this string comes into contact with the grass, it acts like a blade, cutting the grass to your desired length. These devices are used to even out areas that your big lawnmower missed, such as the borders around a paved walkway.

•  Aerator. Another essential piece of lawn care equipment is an aerator. These devices use long spikes to create holes in the soil, which loosens the soil and allows air to circulate around the roots of the grass. This in turn helps promote new, healthy growth, and will ensure that your lawn looks great year after year.

•  Leaf Blower. A third piece of lawn care equipment that we highly recommend is the leaf blower. These machines allow you to remove fallen leaves from your yard much faster than you could do with a handheld rake, and they will help you ensure your lawn gets plenty of sunlight even in the fall.
