Complete Annual Maintenance Projects with the Right Equipment
Posted by: Erika Green on June 22, 2018
Every homeowner has that list of outdoor maintenance projects you complete once or twice a year at the most. Hedge trimming. Aerating. Pressure washing. Pruning. The list goes on.
This means a lot of tools, equipment and materials that you may not have readily available in your garage.
At The Home Depot® Rental, we have tools and equipment for rent so you don’t have to worry about storing or maintaining them year after year. Here are a few examples of those projects that are better done after a visit to The Home Depot Rental.
Maintaining shrubs and bushes in your yard is relatively easy if you use the right tool. We have DIY-friendly Makita hedge trimmers available for rent that have a long history of proven performance. And since you will only be trimming one or two times a year, you can rent one any time at a convenient The Home Depot® location.
If your yard dries out easily or is compacted from footsteps and pets, you need to aerate it this year. This means puncturing the soil with small holes to allow air and water to flow through the ground and roots. Luckily, there’s a piece of equipment for that.
We have a line of Toro and Classen aerators that will help you get one step closer to a beautiful lawn.
Cutting branches from large trees requires vertical assistance. And with ladders, you’re at a greater risk of falling and getting injured. When you're ready to prune, consider renting a boom lift. You can rent this machine using our four-hour or daily rental option.
If you're a homeowner who has never rented a lift before, here are some important tips to remember:
- Always wear a safety harness and lanyard when in the operator platform.
- Stay a minimum 100 feet from all electrical conductor and utility lines.
- Always operate the lift on a level surface.
An outdoor project like pressure washing your home’s exterior is one of those tasks that always falls to the bottom of the list, but make it a priority this year with the help of large equipment.
