If you’re ready to up your landscaping game, there are a few key tools to add to your arsenal. Not only will these landscaping tools help you craft your outdoor space to your specific goals, they’ll also save you money in the long run. Tackling hedges, trees, beds, and hard-to-reach areas? It’s easier than you think. Explore Makita’s full line of outdoor equipment to see what’s right for your space, and read on for a few tools that can go the extra mile in the great outdoors.
Find Your Edge
Maintaining the edges of your paths, trails and garden beds is one of the easiest ways to keep your yard looking pristine. A line trimmer like the 13” LXT Line Trimmer is ideal for home use, with noise level at a little over 74dB. With a variable speed trigger and 2-speed option, it works great on edges, as well as hard-to-reach overgrown areas of grass.
Trimmers for Hedges—and More
Take on more of your yard projects yourself with Makita’s range of cordless hedge trimmers. Get your hedges looking picture-perfect without having to worry about gas or cords. The lightweight 4” LXT Cordless Hedge Trimmer comes with an 18V battery and grass shear attachment, allowing a compact system for precision hedge trimming, and for cleaning up grass in harder-to-reach areas around hedges and shrubs. For tougher jobs, explore Makita’s 24” and 30” trimmer options.
A Blower That Does It All
A blower is a key tool when it comes to fall cleanup, but what about the rest of the year? When dealing with cleanup from leaves, mulch or other debris, Makita’s Cordless Blower With Vacuum Attachment is a triple threat: its 10:1 mulch ratio can reduce 10 bags of leaves to one, and the vacuum attachment allows for precision suction so you can remove leaf and other lightweight debris without disturbing the rest of your garden beds or landscaping features.
Wheelbarrows That Lighten the Load
When it comes to transporting items around your yard, whether it’s bags of soil, wood, or debris, a wheelbarrow makes more labor-intensive jobs even easier. With Makita’s cordless LXT Power-Assisted Brushless Wheelbarrow, you get a power assist that lets you haul heavier loads, whether you choose the bucket or flatbed option. With a 60-minute runtime on one battery, that means more work in less time, opening you up to even more ambitious DIY jobs, like build a rock or water feature.
