Garden preparation tools
For garden equipment hire visit Best at hire, your National Tool Hire Centre.
Most landscaping jobs, domestic or trade, demand a number of specialist gardening tools. Our extensive portfolio of garden preparation tools includes basic, everyday equipment such as sledge hammers and rubber mallets right through to sophisticated machinery such as hydraulic post hole borers, professional rotavators and telescopic and electric chainsaws.
Before you embark on your project
Landscaping projects can be fun, and with the right planning you can be confident that the garden you create will be both healthy and sustainable. Consider the type of outdoor spaces you need and want – if you have children, for example, you may want to incorporate a lawn for playing on; if you enjoy entertaining you may want a patio or decking for al fresco dining; and if you love gardening you may want to include borders for flowers and shrubs or a vegetable patch. Work out a budget for creating the garden and maintaining it in the future.
Preparing the ground
Hire a rotavator if you need to dig over large areas of ground to save time and energy – choosing from light duty, compact rotavators for everyday jobs right through to heavy duty hydraulic rotavators for more rugged terrains.
If you need to fell a tree, avoid having to do it manually by hiring an electric chainsaw – which also enables you to cut up the branches for firewood.
Installing new fences
If you need to install a new fence, you will need to create fence post holes. For smaller posts, hire a Shov Holer, and to install larger fence post holes hire a powerful hydraulic post hole borer. We also have fence post drivers for hire, which prevent damage to the post that could be caused if you just used a sledge hammer.
