Be sure to get your lawnmower in for a tune-up and blade sharpening now so that you are ready for the mowing season ahead. If you wait too long, you may not be able to get an appointment when you need one.
Clean and sharpen any tools that need it and get rid of any tools that are beyond repair.
Applying a coat of linseed oil to your wooden handled tools will help preserve them for years to come. Be sure to dry out any rags soaked in linseed oil on the line. Linseed oil-soaked rags can heat up and spontaneously combust if they aren’t dried thoroughly. Don’t ever take a linseed or turpentine soaked rag and toss it in a bucket and put it in the garage.
Be ahead of the game by keeping your tools in great shape will launch you into the upcoming gardening season and eliminate the need to spend valuable gardening time on these tasks.
