Outdoor Maintenance Tools Every Homeowner Should Have

Any homeowner knows it’s a lot of work to keep your property functioning properly and looking beautiful all year long. When spring rolls along, there is typically a long list of outdoor chores involving cleaning and maintenance, so it’s ready for you and your family to enjoy the warm weather. 

Hiring a team of professionals is always the safest and most convenient way to ensure your property is at its best at all times. If you prefer to tackle the hard work yourself or want to be prepared for any small outdoor chores yourself, we want to ensure that you have the tools needed to do so!

These ten outdoor tools are a must-have if you choose to handle your home’s property maintenance on your own:

Leaf Rake

If you have plenty of trees in your yard, you know how laborious leaf cleanup can be. Be sure you have a rake that is good for your height, is sturdy, and will get the job done efficiently. Rakes as well help clean any debris off your lawn and are always a must-have in your shed.

Hedge Trimmer

Utilizing a hedge trimmer helps trim those bushes and shrubs across your property for a neat, professional look. 

Weed Whacker

Weeds are bound to grow somewhere on your property, so having a weed wacker in your tool arsenal will make getting rid of them more effortless than ever. This power tool will quickly chop away at those pesky weeds to help your lawn and property look professionally maintained at all times.


You never know when you might need to dig! Many different types of shovels can help your tasks done, so be sure you have the suitable shovels for the job, whether it’s a rounded digging shovel, scoop shovel, or flat shovel.

Garden Hose

Every lawn needs to be heavily hydrated to grow healthily and look green and summer long, so be sure you have a reliable garden hose nearby for all your outdoor watering needs. As well, get a handy sprinkler attachment to make the watering process quick and easy.

Pressure Washer

Dirt and grime will naturally build up over time on any surface that’s exposed to the elements in your yard, so having a tool handy to help you get a shiny clean can be incredibly useful. A power washer, also called a pressure washer, powerfully sprays water to wash off surfaces easily, so they are as good as new.

Leaf Blower

Especially if you have lots of trees and plants on your property, you need a leaf blower. With this handy piece of equipment, moving and cleaning up leaves and other debris is much quicker and easier, especially after mowing or during the fall season. 

Lawn Mower

If you choose to do the lawn-cutting yourself, a high-quality lawn mower is a must-have. Invest in the one best for you and your needs, whether it’s a manual push mower or a standard push mower. 


This is the tool you’ll need for pruning trees and other shrubbery. Loppers are a type of large scissors that are the best tool for cutting any sticks, twigs, branches, and more. 

A Good Pair of Gloves

No matter what chore you need to get done on your property, a quality pair of gloves is essential. Your hands are doing a lot of physical work, and you can easily get hurt, so gloves can help ensure they stay cut-free. Keep in mind, gloves that can grip tightly and are made from a breathable, comfortable material are best.
