Does your outdoor space need a new look? If so, you may be thinking of levelling your grass, planting new vegetation or getting rid of weeds. Doing a good job on your yard will depend on the type of equipment you have. Instead of bringing a knife to a gunfight, prepare yourself by having the following landscape supplies handy. This essential starter pack is cost-friendly, easily available and an effective solution for almost any outdoor space.  

1.    Mulch

If you're trying to grow new plants in a garden (or grass in your yard), mulch will come in handy. Mulch provides plants with much-needed nutrients while preventing the nutrients from evaporating under heat from the sun. Mulch also keeps your plants moist and can be used to promote growth across many different weather conditions. Look for a landscape supply service that can deliver mulch to your home in desired quantities. In this way, you don't have to spend time making your own mulch and focusing on the little details such as composition or quantity.

2.    Lawnmower

After getting the ingredients that your soil needs, you should proceed to focus on equipment. A lawnmower is a necessity for any type of yard work that you might need to do. It comes in handy when cutting grass, transporting leaves and landscaping outdoor spaces. There are many different types of lawnmowers available. Some are simple and portable for small-scale tasks, while others come equipped with leave blowers, rakes and other tools that help you move faster during yard work.

3.    Topsoil

After landscaping your outdoor space, you may be looking to add a finishing touch to the upper layers of your soil. Topsoil is an excellent way of adding texture to the unique theme of your home. A landscaping service can deliver many different types of topsoil to your premises; ranging from artificial grades to natural-looking loamy soils. All you need to do is specify the quantity and quality desired and wait for timely delivery of your supplies.  

4.    Bagged salt

In some cases, you may need salt to add nutrients for specific types of plants. Bagged salt is an easy way of adding fertility almost overnight and promoting plant growth. It comes in handy on dry (or very wet) climates where salt ends up being washed away from soil layers within a brief period. Better yet, you can order salt of different compositions to suit the type of vegetation that you're growing.

Look for a shop that provides landscaping supplies near you.
