A weed wacker, also known as a trimmer or edger, can help you get those hard to reach places the mower just won’t cut. This includes the cracks in sidewalks, beside pathways, around trees, and along fence lines. Without a weed wacker, these areas can quickly become overgrown and effect the overall visual appeal of your yard greatly not to mention leave places for insects and other pests to hide.
A large pair of sturdy clippers, also sometimes referred to as lobbers or hand trimmers, are important because they allow you to trim any flora in your yard. A good pair of clippers can keep your bushes from becoming overgrown, clip flowers, trim trees, and a medley of other things you will undoubtedly need done at some point as a homeowner.
A wheel barrow is used to transport stuff around the yard which would be difficult to do otherwise, such as when it is too heavy or bulky to carry in your arms. It can be helpful during the fall for transporting leaves to the side of the street for pickup, or for bringing mulch to your flowerbeds. It can also be used to transport dirt, weeds, or even trash.
