Spring is just around the corner…


Spring is a wonderful time of the year. The flowers start to bloom, the weather starts to get warmer, and the days start to get longer. This is also the time when the clocks go forward on the 26th of March. Spring is the perfect time to get out into your garden and start working on some DIY projects. In this blog, we will be discussing some of the DIY jobs you can do in your garden this spring and how Hodgson Tool Hire Ltd can help.

Firstly, one of the most important jobs you can do in your garden this spring is to prepare your soil for planting. This can involve turning over the soil, removing any weeds, and adding fertilizers and compost. Hodgson Tool Hire Ltd can help you with this task by offering a wide range of garden equipment on our hire fleet, such as rotavators and tillers.

Secondly, pruning and trimming your trees and bushes is also a great job to do in the spring. This will help them to grow stronger and healthier, and it will also make your garden look neat and tidy.

Thirdly, cleaning and repairing your garden equipment is a crucial job to do in the spring. If you have your own lawnmowers, shears, and other gardening tools, it's a good time to get them serviced and sharpened ready for the upcoming growing season. Hodgson Tool Hire Ltd offers a tool repair and maintenance service to help you with this task.

“Fun fact - A sharp lawn mower blade is crucial for maintaining a healthy lawn. When a lawn mower blade is dull, it tears the grass rather than cutting it cleanly. This can cause damage to the grass blades and make them more susceptible to diseases and pests.

On the other hand, a sharp lawn mower blade cuts the grass cleanly, leaving a smooth and even finish. This promotes healthy growth by minimizing damage to the grass blades and allowing the grass to heal quickly after being cut. A clean cut also reduces the risk of disease and insect infestation by creating a stronger, healthier lawn.”

Lastly, adding some new features to your garden can help to give it a fresh and exciting look for the spring. Whether you want to install a new water feature, lay a new patio, or build a garden wall, Hodgson Tool Hire Ltd can provide the tools and equipment you need to complete these projects.
