Shaping your yard and garden
You've painted, papered and accessorized, and now every room in your home looks like it's straight out of a magazine. But what about your yard?
If you want the outer appearance of your home to match its inner beauty, you'll need to invest in some lawn garden tools . Whether you have a yard that's overgrown or no lawn at all, the right tools are the first step to lush, manicured greenery.
Building Your Lawn
If your lot has no grass or if the yard has dead patches, you need to get the grass growing. Start by removing any rocks, debris and other impediments. A wheelbarrow will help you move large or heavy objects without undue back and muscle strain, and it will also come in handy for removing excess dirt or transferring soil to the areas that will become garden beds.
Once the yard is prepared, a lawn seeder allows you to spread grass seed quickly. If your lawn is small, a hand-held or bag seeder is probably all you'll need, but for larger spaces, a wheeled seeder is ideal.
Fertilizing is the final step to growing a luscious lawn. Like a seeder, a lawn spreader makes it easy to distribute fertilizer quickly and evenly – and without getting your hands dirty! You'll want a broadcast spreader to cover the most area with the fewest passes. Take into account both the size of your lawn and the amount of fertilizer you want to spread when making your selection.

It is especially important that your snow shovel be well built so that you don't put undue strain on your muscles while pushing and lifting heavy snow on icy terrain.
For a particularly large landscaping project, such as excavating a pool, you might consider renting a small power shovel. These motorized digging machines are quick and efficient. They may require special licensing to operate, however, so be sure to investigate the requirements for safe, legal operation.
On the other hand, if you're tight on space in your garage or shed, you might consider a folding shovel. Available in a variety of sizes, these compact tools are great for small, quick jobs and are far more portable than a regular shovel.
Rakes are invaluable landscaping tools. A leaf rake is a necessity for cleaning up leaves in the fall, while a lawn rake tidies your yard after mowing. Lawn rakes tend to have slightly smaller heads and closer-together tines than leaf rakes, though you can use a lawn rake to rake leaves or a leaf rake to rake grass.
If it's dirt, soil or rocks you're raking, a landscape rake is the ideal tool. Landscape rakes generally att...
