Do you have a lawn care nut in your family and struggling to find them Christmas Gifts this year? These six items are absolute must-haves. They’re affordable, fit perfectly in a Christmas and Holiday Stocking, and will play a pivotal role in ensuring they continue to dominate with their deep dark green lawns this year.
A simple but effective digital thermometer is a must-have for the lawn care nut in your family. A quick, easy-to-read temperature of the soil is important from the early spring stages of then to apply pre-emergent herbicides, to end of the season during overseeding. Fits nicely in a Christmas stocking and is very affordable.
Before applying any type of fertilizer, you must know what your soil needs – from Nitrogen to pH. This popular Soil Test Kit by Soil Savvy does just the trick. Take a few samples of soil in different spots throughout your yard, mix it, add to the Soil Savvy container, and mail it back. Within a week or so you’ll see exactly what your soil needs.
No one likes replacing the sting on a weed whacker. Nobody. It’s a royal pain in the neck. But don’t let that stop your lawn care addict from dominating those edges. The Echo Universal Trimmer Head takes that headache away. Now you can quickly and easily replace those strings in a jiffy.
I wrote a detailed review of Tenacity Herbicide. This is on the pricey side but is hands-down one of the best herbicides on the market today. It exploded in popularity in 2019 and for very good reason. A little goes a long way while acting as both a pre-emergent and post emergent herbicide. And the best part about it is that it’s safe to use while seeding. Don’t forget the non-ionic surfactant, too!
This weed tool is awesome. Sometimes weeds are so sparse that it just doesn’t make sense to throw down any more chemicals. And most of the time, ripping weeds out with your hands just doesn’t cut it – especially those hearty broadleaf weeds like dandelion and violet. This ergonomic tool does just the trick. Far better, and quicker, then using a screwdriver, this tool easily pulls up even the toughest weeds. It’s sharp and strong enough to drive deep into the soil, eradicating the weed and its taproot.
