10 Must-Have Tools (Part II)!


Happy November from Desert Rose! Welcome to part two of our two-part series all about the 10 recommended tools to help a homeowner maintain their yard. Let’s pick up where we left off…

6.) Weed puller

A weed pulling tool (whether handheld or step on) will make removing weeds a breeze. It will also help to ensure you remove the entire root and prevent the weed from returning.

7.) Hedger/trimmer

A hedger/trimmer will make shaping shrubs feel like a creative experience rather than an exhausting chore. Just like a blower, you can opt for an economic cord powered (just be careful not to cut the cord!), or battery or gas-powered. Earplugs are a must for gas-powered and eye protection is highly recommended, regardless of power option.

8.) Weedeater (and safety glasses)

A weed eater (aka string trimmer) can help to tackle overgrown areas of wild grass or weeds, as well as edge sidewalks, and cut out those hard-to-pull weeds that grow in the cracks of cement. There are corded, battery-powered, and gas-powered options. Use caution since they have a tendency to throw rocks at speeds that can easily shatter windows, sliding doors, and dent cars. Always wear eye protection when using a weed eater!

9.) Shovel

Both a flat and regular shovel is very helpful for digging, moving mulch and dirt, and digging out large weeds.

10) Wheelbarrow

A wheelbarrow is essential for yard work. Whether touching up gravel, moving mulch, or hauling out debris; a wheelbarrow will save your back and make your work go much smoother. If you are worried about balancing the weight of the wheelbarrow on one wheel, there are wheelbarrows with two wheels, which makes moving and navigation easier and gives you more control.

As professional landscapers, these 10 tools can help you up your game and assist you with easily maintaining your yard. If you would rather skip the work and would like us to keep your yard clean for you, feel free to reach out to schedule maintenance with Desert Rose!
