Fall is a great time to get ahead of next year’s goals with landscaping and hardscaping projects. The mild weather makes for comfortable working conditions, and the soil stays evenly hydrated when conducting earth-moving tasks. Savvy contractors know that they can usually pick up a significant amount of work in the fall—including large-scale commercial jobs—keeping them busy well into the first frost.
But to keep up with that workload and maximize profits, you’ll often need a few extra tools that you wouldn’t necessarily use all year round. On top of purchasing the kind of general equipment most landscapers need, a smart way to beef up your arsenal for these fall jobs is to consider landscaping equipment rentals. Alternately, while it may be smart for you to own one set of bigger equipment, there are times you’re working with an expanded crew—and need more equipment, albeit only temporarily.
