Running a successful and professional landscape gardening business is both exciting and challenging in equal measure, and the benefits it affords you both physically and mentally are not to be overlooked.
Here are the top five pieces of individual equipment which every professional landscape gardener simply cannot do without.
A Grouting Machine
Essentially, a grouting machine is a professional construction tool that is indispensable to landscape gardeners and is used for chemical grouting, leak slowdown, and physical reinforcement of cracks and joints.
Grouting machines operate at an incredibly high-pressure point and enable the user to be as efficient as possible without compromising the quality of the grouting itself. Having decided to invest in a professional grouting machine, it is strongly advisable to purchase from a reputable, experienced, and knowledgeable landscape business supplier, such as arbourlandscapesolutions.co.uk, which is based in the United Kingdom.
One of the most essential pieces of equipment for a landscape gardener is a good quality, heavy duty industrial blower machine. Not only do blowers remove wayward leaves and branches, they also remove a whole host of other garden debris and can be used on lawns, flower borders, and beds, pavements, driveways, and patio slabs.
For landscaping and gardening businesses, a battery-powered chainsaw is an invaluable tool, and it is strongly advisable that you purchase a high-end, excellent quality chainsaw for the best possible results.
Battery-powered chainsaws are considerably lighter to carry and, therefore, maneuver when working on a job, generally have more cut-off safety features, have a faster operating time and complexly eradicate the problem of engine choking between uses.
A Quality Set of Hand Tools
Obviously, a good quality set of hand tools are essential items for your toolbox as a landscape gardener, and there are more than a few generally accepted rules of thumb when choosing such a set.
Ensure you are able to try out the tools, holding them in your hands and seeing whether or not they are a good fit for you and your workers. Hand tools with wooden handles or alternatively handles coated with a metal covering are best as they are relatively lightweight but also incredibly strong.
A Heavy Duty Lawnmower
Heavy duty lawnmowers are not just for gardens and lawns with an inordinate amount of space and a larger-than-life lawn. The one tool you are guaranteed to use more than any other is a lawnmower, and because of this, it is strongly advised that you splash out and invest in a good quality, heavy duty lawnmower that will stand the test of time. Ideally, a ride-on lawnmower that is powered by petrol rather than electricity from the mains will set you apart from smaller, less professional landscape gardening businesses. It is strongly advisable to choose a four-wheel lawnmower so, regardless of the grass type and length or how uneven the soil is, you will succeed.
