Maintaining Your Lawn Care Tools

Here are some tips on how you can make your lawn tools last longer:

  1. 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.
  2. Wipe your tools dry whenever they accumulate any moisture. This prevents them from rusting.
  3. Sharpen your cutting tools and your mower blades every spring to keep their cutting edges in perfect condition.
  4. 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.
