A well-maintained yard is a significantly good feature to any valuable rental home. As is often the case, property owners and tenants must cooperate to make sure that weeds, debris, and other eyesores are not allowed to easily propagate which would result in a loss of curb appeal and, in extreme cases, depreciation of property value.
In order to be ready for yard care season, you need to make sure that you carefully state the landscape responsibilities of both the renter and the landlord in the lease. It is key to communicate who is answerable for which tasks so that they are not neglected.

A tenant will need to have in their possession or have permission from someone they know to use the right tools for the job, should they have agreed to tend to a rental home’s lawn. A lawn mower, rake, and other tools are basic necessities.

Since that is the case, they’ll want hand trowels, shovels, and other weeding tools to keep the yard orderly. Onerous garden maintenance tasks may necessitate for serious tools.
