If you want to beautify your yard, choose the right tools to get the job done. Whether your yard features overgrown grass, wild weeds, untamable trees or all of the above, we can show you how to best clean up to get ready for spring.

Spring Cleaning Checklist: Get Your Yard Ready for Spring!

Step 1: Remove weeds from your yard. The first step towards creating a beautiful yard ready for spring is to remove any weeds from your yard using the Fiskars® Deluxe Stand Up Weeder. This tool is a go-to for me because it eliminates the need to crouch down and remove tough weeds with my hands which can cause back strain and pressure on your wrists.

Step 2: Mow the lawn. Once the yard is weed free, move on to mowing. The Fiskars® StaySharp™ Max Reel Mower is a great choice for anyone looking to increase cutting power and reduce the effort needed to push standard reel mowers. Plus, I love that there is no need for gas, oil, electricity or chains to run the mower.

Step 3: Prune overgrown plants. Next, prune back untidy trees or shrubs using the Fiskars® PowerGear2™ Pruner and Lopper. This tidying up will help promote new growth for healthy limbs and leave you with a manicured look to be proud of.

For those harder to reach jobs, cut back any overgrown tree branches using the Fiskars® Chain Drive Extendable Pole Saw & Pruner. This tree pruner extends up to 16' so even the highest limbs are reachable.

Step 4: Cut back the clutter. If your yard is especially dense, you may need to take the cleanup even further. Use the Fiskars® Machete Axe to cut back any tangled plants and vines or reduce overrun grasses.

Step 5: Clean up your cleanup. Once you've cleared away the overgrowth from your yard, you'll be left with some debris. Rake up all remains resulting from clearing the area using the Fiskars® Leaf Rake and put into the Fiskars® Kangaroo Garden bag for easy removal. To remove, simply take to your compost area and add to the pile. Now you're prepped to enjoy your yard all spring and summer long!
