Landscaping is an essential part of maintaining and beautifying your lawn, garden, trees, flower beds, backyard, and garden. There is a multitude of tools and equipment options for every application. Choose from the top 10 landscaping tools we’ve listed for trimming, cutting, edging, weeding, digging, pruning, seeding, chipping, or raking. Remember, if you plan on using it only once or twice per season, as in the case of an overseeder or aerator, you can always rent landscaping equipment for a fraction of what it would cost you to own it.


Billy Goat Aerator with Honda 4.0 HP engine

Get your lawn aerator rental from Durante Rentals and help your lawn stay healthy and green. Just like all living things, your lawn needs to breathe in order to grow and prosper. The build-up of lawn thatch makes it difficult for your lawn to receive the oxygen and nutrients it needs. Lawn aerators help reduce lawn thatch by poking holes into or pulling “cores” out of the soil to allow air, water, and fertilizer to permeate the root zone.

Billy goat professional power rake dethatcher

Rent a lawn dethatcher to help promote a denser, deeper, and thicker lawn. Dethatchers help prevents disease and dehydration by allowing water and nutrients to reach the root zone. Our 20″ dethatchers use their sharp metal blades to penetrate the surface and subsurface of your lawn, removing built-up thatch, which is dead organic material like grass, leaves, and roots. The best time to use a dethatcher is early spring and fall.




Billy Goat Overseeders

Rent a  lawn overseeder and your grass will thank you for making it greener, healthier, thicker and less susceptible to disease, insects, and drought. The function of an overseeder is to seed a new lawn or overseed an existing lawn to help restore bare spots. The sharp blades of the overseeder cut through thatch growth and open “slits” that are then filled by the new seeds. The best times to overseed are late summer or early fall.


String Trimmers

String trimmers also referred to as weed wackers or line trimmers, are essential for areas of tall grass or overgrowth that can’t be reached with a standard mower, like around trees and flowerbeds. Our gas string trimmers are ideal for trimming, edging, or cutting both commercial and residential landscapes alike. Our string trimmers for rent are powerful, durable, and lightweight, as well as quiet and easy to use.


Stump Grinders

We carry both 16″ and 9″ tillers, both able to penetrate hard-packed soil, hard clay, or sod at a maximum depth of 10″.




Turf Rakes

If you know how to operate a standard lawnmower then using a turf rake for dethatching your lawn should be a breeze. You can use a normal rake but a gas-powered turf rake will get the job done faster, easier, and more efficiently. Our turf rakes for rent are portable with folding handles for easy transport. Our 20″ wide standard power rakes also come with optional seed and grass collection attachments.
