The 5 Yard Tools You'll Need This Summer

Maintaining a healthy and attractive yard isn’t difficult when you have the correct tools. Here’s a quick list of the tools we feel every homeowner needs to get the job done. See something that isn’t currently in your toolshed? No worries, just head on over to Hurst Farm Supply.

A Reliable Lawn Mower

Your lawn mower plays a key role in the health and appearance of your yard. Picking the best one for your lawn takes some time and thought.

The first thing to consider is the size and topography of your yard. If you have a small, flat yard, a smaller mower will suit you nicely, especially if it’s designed to make tight turns. However, if you have a large lawn, you’ll need a mower that cuts a wide swath so you don’t spend hours cutting grass each week.

Other considerations include whether you want a riding or push lawn mower, and if you’re better off with an electric or gas powered one.

Once you have a solid idea of the type of lawn mower that best suits your needs, you’re ready to look at the various models Hurst carries and choose the one you like best.

Already have a lawn mower you like? Don’t forget that Hurst’s team of mechanics will keep it running smoothly all summer long.

Get a Wheelbarrow

A wheelbarrow isn’t something you want to be without. Not only will you use it for spreading mulch in your flower beds during the springtime, you’ll also fill it with leaves and twigs during the fall. The wheelbarrow is also handy whenever you need to move multiple or heavy items around your property. Don’t forget to keep the tire properly inflated.

High-Quality Pruners

Whether you have one hedge in your yard or a dozen trees, you need high-quality pruners. Most people find they regularly use two pairs, a pair of pole pruners that allows them to remove dying and broken branches from their trees and a smaller, hand held pair that they use to shape their hedges, bushes, and rosebushes. We have a nice selection of quality pruners. Stop in and pick up a pair today!

A Trusty Turf Edger

We’ve all seen yards that look great from a distance, but when you enter them, you notice that  the grass is long and scraggly along the driveway and walkways, while the rest of the yard is neatly trimmed. This is exactly why you need a good turf edger in your toolshed. It’s the perfect tool for trimming the areas the lawn mower can’t reach.


Having a spreader on hand allows you to evenly distribute seeds and fertilizers to different parts of your lawn and to control the amount the soil receives. Having your own spreader not only helps you maintain a healthy, attractive yard, but is also something you can choose to rent to your friends and neighbors who haven’t invested in a spreader.


Hurst Farm Supply also carries a lovely selection of all the tools needed to keep your yard looking great all summer long. Contact us today to learn more about our current inventory.
