Role of Landscape Maintenance Equipment in Gardening

Whether you want to start your own gardening and landscaping business or you simply have a yard that’s a project all on its own, you won’t get very far without the right equipment. Landscape maintenance equipment has been an essential part of the process since the beginning of the industrial revolution. So, if you have gardening needs, this equipment is important to consider.


Much of landscaping equipment serves a purely pragmatic role. For example, you use an aerator, not to help make the plants look better, but to improve soil drainage. They also help oxygen get to microfauna, microflora and worms,which also assist in improving the soil your plants need. Likewise, a rotary tiller or a rotovator can be used to help dig up soil and mix it around before planting takes place. Trying to accomplish either of these goals without the right equipment would be just short of impossible, especially without an army of workers to help you.

However, other forms of landscape maintenance equipment are used purely for aesthetic reasons. When it comes to landscaping and gardens, this can be just as important. A landscape edger is a good example of this. The machine is made to cut the grass right up close to where it connects with a sidewalk, driveway, garden, etc. Hedge trimmers, brush cutters and lawnmowers are all example as well. They may help a yard stay healthy in some ways, but their main goal is making sure they look great. But again, unless you have the right equipment assisting you, something as simple as edging would be next to impossible.


Fortunately, there are all kinds of power equipment options out there for producing a garden and/or landscape that looks great and will last for years. At Keen Edge Co., it’s our business to know all about assisting with both. Contact us today at 877-463-3685 if you’d like more information about what our equipment can do.
