Preparing your bedding sand for paving stones is much easier when you have the proper landscape tools. Screed tools from The Rusty Shovel make things easy – featuring brands like Ox Tools and Pave Tool Innovators – from your basic aluminum screed bar, Ox Screed Bar w/ Handle and Level, or the Stand Up Quick-E Screeder Package from Pave Tool.
Winter is a great time to take a look at tools that can help you on your landscape crew be more effective and turn out a better finished product on the job site. We’ll be highlighting a bunch of tools over the winter you can find with us here at The Rusty Shovel. First up is the Ox Tools Wood Float.
Every year as spring approaches, preparations begin for the upcoming landscaping season. Whether you’ve been a landscape contractor for decades, or you’re putting together your game plan for your first year in business, the upcoming season brings exciting opportunities, a few challenges to overcome, and some great projects to add to your portfolio. As you prepare for the year, you may be looking at an empty tool trailer waiting to be filled, or the tools in your full trailer may be in need of some replacements or upgrades. Either way, we’ve taken the tools from our suppliers and put together a bit of a “dream trailer” tool list, some must-haves, and a few tools that might not always be on everyone’s radar, but that can greatly improve efficiency while reducing fatigue and potential injury.
This list cuts through the noise of all those large catalogues and gives you all the info you need, and all you have to do is click the link to see:
Introducing another new tool manufacturer to The Rusty Shovel lineup – Pave Tool Innovators. These products are all designed by hardscape contractors, for hardscape contractors. They’ve been in your shoes and wanted to find a better way – and they have!
Below are a series of playlists to introduce their tools and explain where they’re used and how to use them.
One of our favourite things from the Hardscape show this past October was finding Ox Tools. They have hand tools for a number of different industries, including hardscapes, masonry, carpentry, drywalling, concrete and more.
