It’s been a long winter, but the first day of spring is today. As temperatures climb and fragrant breezes drift in through open windows, you might find yourself wanting to clean up your yard.
At One Stop Rental of West Chester/Mason, Ohio, we want to be the “one stop” for your next project or party. We look forward to working outside like you do. Keep reading to learn how to clean up your yard after a long winter with brush cutters, stump grinders, lawn vacuums and leaf blowers.
How to Clean Up Your Yard with Brush Cutters
Brush cutters are stronger and more robust than grass trimmers. As a result, they can handle tasks such as clearing grass, small bushes and undergrowth. With the right accessories, you can even use brush cutters for trimming grass where a lawn mower can’t reach and clearing smaller trees. A good rule of thumb for brush cutters: the denser the area of vegetation you have to clear, the more powerful the machine you need. Make sure you get the right one for the job you want to tackle.
How to Clean Up Your Yard with Stump Grinders
Like brush cutters, stump grinders are essential tools for cleaning up your yard. These powerful equipment attachments remove tree stumps with a rotating disc that chips away the wood. They range in size to fit the task at hand and can be the size of a lawn mower or as big as a truck. Stump grinders feature a cutter wheel with fixed carbide teeth. Hydraulic cylinders control the wheel’s movements and push the wheel laterally through the stump. These cylinders also raise and lower the wheel.
How to Clean Up Your Yard with Lawn Vacuums
Anyone who wants to remove debris from his or her lawn should check out lawn vacuums. These tools are used to vacuum leaves, twigs, small rocks and trash from the yard. They can also be used to clear sidewalks and walkways. If you attach a fitted, flexible hose to the vacuum, you could even use it to suck leaves out of planters, shrubbery and other hard to reach places.
How to Clean Up Your Yard with Leaf Blowers
You’re probably more familiar with leaf blowers than the other tools or equipment on this list. Leaf blowers move leaves and other debris off the lawn and can either run on gasoline or electricity. They are typically handheld, self-contained units or backpack mounted units with handheld wands.
No matter the size of your lawn, spring is the best time to get it in shape. Clean up your yard with tools like brush cutters, stump grinders, lawn vacuums and leaf blowers—you’ll save time and energy for the things that really matter, like smelling the flowers!
