Temperatures are rising, the sun is peeking out from behind the clouds and the birds are beginning to flit from tree to tree. With each sign of spring, the desire to get outside increases. But, if you’re like most, your yard didn’t get much TLC during the winter months, and it isn’t exactly calling to you now.
If you’re going to enjoy your outdoor space all spring and summer long, you need a place as more welcoming to the eyes than it is to the weeds. Early spring is a perfect time to make over your yard and, if you break the project into a few steps, a makeover won’t seem overwhelming. The experts at Pine Bush Equipment Co. can help you choose the right new or rental equipment for any project, or you can call them to schedule a maintenance service call and get your equipment ready for the season.
First, get a vision for what you want the finished effort to look like. Next, assess your space, to determine if you have any big projects to tackle. Big projects can mean more work on the front end, but they also yield more dramatic results. If you have an eyesore—such as a dilapidated shed, a dead tree or a long-neglected swing set cluttering your space, it’s going to be hard to beautify your grounds without getting rid of the ugliness first.
A chainsaw can make quick work of a dead tree, while renting an excavator, skid steer or backhoe from Pine Bush Equipment can help you with demolition work on the unneeded structures. The Job-site Specialists at PBE will visit your site and help you choose the perfect equipment for the job, at no cost or obligation. You may even find that the bare spot left is a perfect place to dig a koi pond or to pour a concrete patio. Dream big, create a plan, gather the right tools, and you’ll be ready to go!
Next, with big stuff out of the way, consider what you can add to amplify what you’ve already got. Is your exposed foundation begging for bushes? Do you have great existing flower beds that just need to be edged, or hedges that need a little trimming? A few hours and the right tools you can make a dramatic impact on your space.
Finally, what will you need to maintain all the work you’ve done? The right landscape tools—such as a Kubota tractor, and Stihl trimmer and edger—will make weekly chores faster and less burdensome—leaving you more time to rest in a hammock and enjoy all the beauty you’ve created.
Pine Bush Equipment Co. has all the new and rental equipment you need to turn your neglected outdoor space into a backyard retreat. In business since 1956, PBE sells, rents and services a wide range of equipment and tools from their three locations: Pine Bush, NY; Holmes, NY; and Newington, CT. We’re proud to have been named Best Place to Buy a Tractor in Hudson Valley Magazine’s 2017 “Best of Hudson Valley” issue.
