Tools You Should Use to Maintain the Perfect Lawn

To create and more importantly maintain the perfect lawn, there a few things you will need. All of which I use myself. Some are more obvious than others and maybe even some will lead you to a new purchase.


#1 - Lawnmower


Of course, I had to start with the lawnmower because it is the most obvious thing you need to get started. If you don’t have one you will need to get one now. Personally, I would recommend spending some good money on one, because a high-quality one will often last you for years and years to come.

I also personally like to opt for one that can do a very low cut to the ground, this can give the grass a pristine look when done properly looks amazing and is something to consider if you are looking for a new lawnmower. Here is the quality guide to help you choose.

#2 - Strimmer


The 2nd thing you need is a strimmer. A strimmer will simply tidy up all the sides and edges of the lawn. It gets to the areas where the lawnmower simply can’t.

If you never used a strimmer before, you will immediately appreciate the improvement in the appearance of your lawn right after using one. Though it often won’t make things absolutely perfect, it will show a massive improvement when compared with using just a lawnmower. Again, getting a higher quality one is much advised.

Also, one thing I recommend is getting some high-quality wire to use for it. The ones that come included with the strimmer are often quite poor-quality and need to be changed frequently. Personally, I would look for some well-reviewed options that are made of nylon - they have worked best for me.

#3 - Clippers


If you are in search of creating the perfect lawn, then you will need clippers. This is simply to manually cut the edges of the lawn to get it looking as close to flawless as possible.

For some people, this may seem a little over the top but for others, it’s exactly what they are looking for. If you want to take it even further and to the next level, you could use some scissors to finalize your picture-perfect lawn.

#4 - Fertilizer


Some people simply don’t want to use fertilizer and often it’s not needed depending on climate. For me, I look to fertilize my lawn once a year. This gives the ground the nourishment it needs and once a year is often enough. This helps prevent any patchy areas from developing down the line and is a simple way that you only need to do once a year or twice if you really want to.

#5 - Weed Torch


When you get weeds on your lawn, lots of people often recommend using something like a weed killer. Though for me when I have used a weed killer in the past it often leaves the weeds and the surrounding grass all burnt and looking horrible.

That’s why I opted for some weed torches. Simply I burn the weeds and then afterwards I will fertilize the ground where the weeds where. This stops the lawn from becoming patchy and really works a dream.


While maintaining a lawn may seem like a long and tedious task for some it can actually be done rather quickly once you know what you are doing and have some experience it should be a breeze to get everything sorted.

For a lot of people doing gardening can not only be relaxing but also has some therapeutic benefits, of course that's if you are in the right state of mind, because I doubt you would be reading this article if you weren't interested in gardening or something of the like. So for you it should be great for both your body and your mind and I guarantee you will love the end result!
