Spring has arrived, which means Summer is only around the corner. That means now is the time to focus on getting your lawn into top shape for the season ahead. After the Winter months, our outdoor spaces need a little extra care to flourish as the warmer weather starts to appear. Early Spring is the perfect opportunity to get yourself equipped with all the essential tools needed to rejuvenate and maintain your lawn. From mowers to aerators, having the right equipment guarantees a lush, healthy lawn that enhances your outdoor living experience – and that’s precisely where we come in at Smiths Hire. With our handy tool hire services, you can quickly get everything you need to take care of your lawn in no time at all, so if you’re wondering what tools you need in your arsenal to get started, look no further because that’s exactly what today’s topic of discussion is.

Spring lawn care explained

The look you’re trying to give your lawn will ultimately affect the routine you need to follow to help it reach that level. If you love a wild and untamed garden bustling with life and colour, then a wildflower lawn is the ideal choice—and luckily, it requires little maintenance beyond planting and maintaining your flowers!

However, if you’re looking for something neat, trimmed, and perfect for Summer BBQs, picnics, and playtime with the kids, then that requires slightly more forethought. Now that the April showers are in full swing, they should be giving your lawn enough moisture to start to grow back into its former glory. Still, this refreshing wave of water isn’t going to be enough to keep your lawn beautiful throughout the sweltering temperatures of summer. Regular maintenance throughout spring and summer is the key to the perfect lawn.

The ultimate lawn tool collection

Depending on your starting point, you may need more or fewer tools, and buying all of those tools would be a hassle and a financial drain, never mind finding somewhere to keep them for the six months of the year when the weather could be better. Luckily, with our tool hire services, you can borrow our equipment for as long or as little as you like, so you can get all the jobs you need done without hesitation (and without clogging up your shed or garage with lawn equipment). So, let’s take a look at some of the equipment you’re going to need.

If you have a standard lawn that needs some TLC

The season of backyard barbecues and outdoor gatherings is almost here. If you’re looking to make your lawn look great for entertaining guests, and it just needs a standard mow, then our Petrol Rotary Lawnmower is the tool for the job. This lawnmower is designed to mow medium-sized lawns up to 1200m² easily. The single-speed drive allows you to mow without having to actively push, which is excellent for larger lawns or those that are on a slope.

If you’re dealing with rougher terrain

If you’ve got your work cut out for you with rough terrain, like long grass, heavy weeds, and brambles, don’t worry, our Rough-Cut Mowers and Heavy-Duty Flail Mowers are the perfect solution. These tools are designed to make taking down that pesky overgrowth easy, making your job more efficient and saving you time and effort.

If you’re looking to revive your artificial lawn

Maintaining the lawn is a crucial part of keeping your property looking its best. However, if you’re the proud owner of an artificial lawn, you’re probably already aware that taking care of them can be tricky. But don’t worry, we didn’t forget about you in all this; that’s where our Astro Turf Power Brush comes in handy. This artificial lawn lifesaver is designed to make your life easier by quickly and effortlessly cleaning up your lawn, leaving it looking freshly laid. You’ll be amazed at how much it will transform a tired-looking lawn into a fresh and inviting outdoor space. Plus, it’s not just limited to lawns! You can use it to sweep up debris on your paths, patios, and driveways and keep everything looking neat and tidy.
