Here are some tips on how you can make your lawn tools last longer:
- Remove any mud or soil from your hand tools after each use. If dried mud has accumulated on your hand tools, use a screwdriver or paint stripper to scrape it off.
- Wipe your tools dry whenever they accumulate any moisture. This prevents them from rusting.
- Sharpen your cutting tools and your mower blades every spring to keep their cutting edges in perfect condition.
- If you used any metal tools for chemical applications, put them under running water before wiping them dry. Herbicides and fungicides can easily corrode metal tools.
