WITH the right tools and equipment, any landscaping lawn or garden project can be done easily and given that professional touch.
However, there is no point buying specialised landscaping lawn care tools if they are only going to be used for a short time and then left idle.
With a large network of hire centres across Australia, Kennards can meet all landscaping lawn or garden needs.
Landscaping lawn options
Kennards Hire has a huge range of equipment for landscaping lawn projects from basic wheelbarrows, lawnmowers, rollers, edgers and hedge trimmers to slasher mowers, posthole diggers, stump grinders, knapsack pumps, flame throwers and small earthmoving machines.
Landscaping lawn priorities
The "green, green grass of home" is fundamental when considering landscaping lawn improvements. Kennards has powered lawn corers, which spike the ground, breaking up compacted roots and extracting a thin coil of soil, which is later, raked across the top. Aeration allows water, air and fertiliser quick access to the roots.
Dethatchers, or lawn combs are also used in landscaping lawn care to remove the dense layer of clippings, roots and stems that form between the soil and the base of the grass.
Replacing landscaping lawn
Often, the best landscaping lawn option is to "start again". If old grass has "given up the ghost," kill it off with a chemical spray, and hire a self-propelled rotary hoe to turn over the soil, so the dead grass can be easily raked out, according to Kennards Hire.
If a landscaping lawn job where the grass is healthy but still needs to be removed, Kennards recommends hiring a turf cutter, which cuts it into strips so it can be transplanted elsewhere. A lighter rotary tiller can be hired for garden makeovers.
Landscaping lawn dangers
Out-of control trees can quickly ruin new landscaping lawn projects. An electric or petrol chainsaw allows some judicious pruning. To reach high branches, without having to hang off a ladder, a powered pole pruner can be hired. These also come in petrol or electric models.
Another valuable item in the landscaping lawn equipment section is a chipper-mulcher, which can be used to recycle green waste into valuable mulch for the garden.
Landscaping lawn earth-movers
Kennards has a fleet of small earthmoving machines to meet any type of landscaping lawn challenge. There are mini loaders, which can be fitted with a variety of attachments, mini skid steer loaders (sometimes called mini Bobcats) and mini transporters and high-lift dumpers for moving landscaping lawn materials.
A choice of trenching machines is available for landscaping lawn jobs where trenches need to be dug.
