Backyard maintenance 101 – A guide to your must-have toolkit

(NC)—If your backyard is larger than an average swimming pool and consists of grass and a few trees, you know the ongoing maintenance that it requires.  In order to keep your backyard in tip-top shape year-round, lifestyle and recreational equipment company GIO suggests the following items—and tips—to include in your backyard maintenance toolkit.

• Invest in a quality rake – Keeping leaves under control in the fall will help you avoid patches of dead grass some springtime

• Always have a chainsaw handy – Pesky branches that have snapped due to heavy snow may need to be taken care of immediately for safety reasons

• Put the grass cutter to good use – No other tool will give you the flawless trim around your sidewalk and plant beds

• Be good to your back and biceps with an earth auger – Adding new plant life to your garden will be easier than ever

• Consider a hedge trimmer – Cut down your hedge maintenance time with this great investment
