You probably have a spade, rake and other basic tools in your shed or garage. But many home and garden stores and other facilities offer garden tool rentals, and this can be useful if you need heavier, bulkier or more expensive tools or equipment that cost too much to buy. Tools such as a blower, chainsaw, fence making machine or tiller can be rented inexpensively, as can diggers and excavators. Renting can save you money if it’s equipment that you use only occasionally, and another advantage of renting is that much of this equipment takes up a great deal of space. And renting some tools or equipment also means you can be assured they are in the best possible condition, and will get the job done safely and efficiently. Renting over the weekend can save money, as you are often just charged the one day rental fee.
