Power tools have transformed the gardening industry. Landscapers can now adjust earth and water to make the space more attractive. They can build water fountains, improve the layout of your garden, and so much more.
Landscapers can specialise in certain areas, such as designing practical solutions for farms. You can hire a landscaper to turn your garden into an outdoor entertainment space.
Many landscapers opt to use battery-powered tools for a large portion of their work. Here are some of the benefits of battery-powered tools.
Battery-powered tools are much more affordable than those powered by fuel. The initial cost of a cordless tool may be higher than a fuel-powered one. However, the cost will be far less in the long run because you won’t need to buy fuel.
Corded tools can be tricky to manoeuvre. You can trip over wires, get caught in bushes and struggle to find a power source. Cordless tools are more convenient for landscapers when it’s difficult to find a plug socket. You can have a large autonomy range if you have several batteries that are fully charged.
Fuel-powered tools tend to be more difficult to operate. They need maintenance at least once peruse and regular refuelling. You waste time maintaining power tools when you could be working. Battery-powered tools do not require as much maintenance. You just need to clean the machine, oil it and sharpen the blades.
Better for the environment
We are currently in a climate emergency, and it’s all over the news. Everyone needs to do their part to reduce their carbon footprint. Fuel-powered machines emit high levels of carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides. They pump toxic fumes into the atmosphere and contribute to air pollution rates.
On the other hand, cordless tools do not rely on fossil fuels and do not produce carbon emissions. Many landscapers opt to use cordless tools, so they don’t have to breathe in dangerous fumes every day. Battery-powered tools are much quieter and use far fewer vibrations.
What are the main power tools for landscapers?
Landscapers use numerous cordless power tools for different tasks and specialities. However, most landscapers will own a lawnmower for the most basic of jobs. They can tackle your overgrown lawn and return it to its former glory.
A woodchipper is useful for cutting branches and twigs into smaller pieces so you can clear the garden quickly. Collect all the debris together and put it through the machine. You could use the finished product elsewhere in the garden. For example, woodchips can look quite stylish as a path material or around a set of growing mushrooms.
A tiller, chainsaw and trimmer are also essential for landscapers.
