Fall is an ideal time to thicken up your lawn by overseeding, but experts agree dethatching is a good first step to get maximum germination. Sully’s has the equipment you need to ensure you get the best results from your work.

Thatch protects your lawn by maintaining the moisture and drainage it needs to thrive throughout the growing season, but over time this layer of dead grass and roots can get too thick. If you plan to overseed, heavy thatch will impede germination. Before overseeding, check your lawn for a spongy feel and dethatch if the layer is ¾ inch or more in thickness. Sully’s thatcher, 22 inches wide and featuring a 5.5 HP motor with adjustable handle, is ideal for dethatching large lawns, especially those thicker thatch layers that will interfere with overseeding.

For best results, complete your project with Sully’s gas self-propelled overseeder, which features a front hopper that drops and pushes seed through remaining thatch. Ensure grass height is 2 inches and conditions are dry to get the most from your overseeding.

Contact Sully’s for more information about renting a thatcher and overseeder for your fall lawn projects.

2022 is becoming the year of the wedding. Couples who postponed their nuptials for as long as two years are anxious to get dates set. Couples who settled for small, private weddings are now planning the large celebrations they had intended. The result is a demand for everything wedding related that threatens to outstrip supply.

Trends for 2022 show that by year’s end, weddings will be up as much as 30%, with about 2.5 million couples having gotten married. That’s more weddings in one year than this country has seen in nearly four decades, mostly due to pandemic postponements.

For couples determined to plan the wedding of their dreams, Sully’s Rental has supplies available to fit any vision. The key in this fast-moving wedding season is pre-planning and early booking, along with a little bit of flexibility.

Make your decisions in the right order

With demand extremely high for the most popular venues, it is more important that ever to choose and book your venue early. Wedding experts encourage couples to put three items on the top of their planning list and check them off as soon as possible.

  1. Hire a wedding planner who can help you set a vision and narrow down a list of venues.
  2. Book your venue and review what is included with that contract, specifically catering, tables and chairs, and bar service.
  3. Book your caterer if one is not included in your venue contract.

With these three decisions made, everything else you will need should follow. Depending on your venue and the atmosphere, there are several important items that will be on your rental list and Sully’s can help you check these off.

High priority rental items from Sully’s

Get the sizes, styles, colors, and accessories to complete your wedding vision by booking early with Sully’s Party Rental.

  • Tent – If you have chosen an outdoor venue, a tent is a must. Our team can help you choose the right size and style for your guest list and location, as well as options for sidewalls and heating or cooling needs.
  • Catering Tent – Depending on your venue and your catering service, a second smaller tent may be needed to shelter your catering staff and provide a place from which to serve. Check with your venue and caterer to be sure you book what you need.
  • Tables and chairs – Whether your venue is indoor or outdoor, you may need to provide tables and chairs. Sully’s experts can help you with numbers, size, and layout designs to best suit your vision and the space you have.
  • China and flatware – Even if your caterer provides dishes, you may want to upgrade to china and flatware from Sully’s that truly enhances your event.
  • Glassware and bar service – Choose stemmed or stemless glassware from Sully’s or rent a full bar setting if your venue does not provide one.
  • Linens – Including table runners, table skirts, chair covers, and napkins, Sully’s has a huge selection of colors, styles, and textures that will suit your indoor or outdoor wedding.
  • Centerpieces – From vases and votives to rustic sets, Sully’s can help you finish each table.
  • Lighting and draping – For both tents and interior venues, Sully’s has available lighting, tent draping, and pipe and drape options to dress up your celebration space.
  • Dance floor – A dance floor is a must for your outdoor wedding venue. Ask our team about staging for your live band or DJ.

Flexibility can make your wedding

In a booming wedding industry with prices on the high side, being willing to compromise can make all the difference. Some couples are considering weekdays and/or unconventional times when their venue of choice is booked on the weekends. Others are moving plans to outdoor settings, which can open up a range of options including a family farm or large yard.

Let the team at Sully’s Rental help you find ways to create the wedding of your dreams with one of the largest selections of party items in the area. Call early to get your request in!

Warming weather means it’s time to get your lawn and gardens ready for a summer of lush growth and beauty. Whether you are sprucing up, replanting, or starting from scratch, Sully’s has the lawn and garden equipment you need to get professional results.

Spring lawn care

The early part of the season is your opportunity to ensure a healthy, thick lawn by determining what your grass needs now for healthy growth. During your first mow, if you are noticing heavy thatch and thin spots where grass is struggling to grow, take care of these before grabbing your spreader to apply your spring fertilizer. Use a thatching machine to remove the buildup that can smother your grass and encourage diseases. If the soil seems compacted, you may also consider aerating before overseeding and fertilizing to fill in thin spots and encourage thick growth. Aerating allows water, air and nutrients to better reach the roots.

For a perfectly manicured lawn, follow up mowing with a lawn edger to create a clean edge along driveways, sidewalks, and patios. You may also consider a lawn roller to smooth out areas of your lawn that have become uneven due to snow melt and standing water.

Sully’s has what you need to finish all these tasks:

  • Thatchers
  • Aerators
  • Overseeders
  • Lawn Rollers
  • Mowers
  • Push Spreaders
  • Lawn Edgers

 

Flower and vegetable garden prep

Whether you are cleaning and preparing existing beds for spring growth or you are building new flower or vegetable gardens, get the job done efficiently with tools from Sully’s. Your existing beds may simply need to be cleared of leaves to make way for those sprouting perennials. After raking or blowing out debris, freshen garden edges with a bedmaster or bedscaper to create manicured edges and smooth curves that keep grass from encroaching.

For new gardens, be sure to use a tiller to break up dirt and clumps and to work in nutrient-rich additives, compost and sweet peat to create the best soil combination for whatever you are planting. If your new bed will be in a grass-covered area of your yard, you will want to use a sod cutter first to remove the grass. Consider using the sod pieces in other areas of your yard that need grass. If the grass is not too thick you may be able to use a weed trimmer to cut it short before turning over with a tiller.

For new gardens, don’t skimp on adding quality soil to give plants, shrubs and vegetables a good start and a healthy environment in which to grow. A wheelbarrow or dump trailer can be helpful for moving large amounts of new soil to your garden area. Clean up those edges and discourage weed and grass encroachment by using a bedmaster for a defined edge.

Sully’s has the tools you need to build and prepare your garden:

  • Bedmaster
  • Tiller
  • Dump Trailer
  • Sod Cutter
  • Weed Trimmer
  • Leaf Blower

At Sully’s Rental, we have everything you need to get busy creating a lawn and garden you can be proud of. Contact us today to rent all your lawn and garden tools and equipment.

Aerators
April 1, 2022

A primary reason for an unhealthy lawn is because water and fertilizer you are feeding it are unable to reach the roots of your grass. Aerating overcomes this problem by punching small holes through the thatch and into the soil, thereby creating an avenue for air, water, and nutrients to circulate. Even if your lawn looks reasonably healthy, it will benefit from occasional aeration, especially if it has been compacted by construction equipment or it is a sod lawn with layered soil beneath. Aeration also is recommended any time you are overseeding.

Spring is the best time to aerate your lawn, and Sully’s aerators provide solutions for small lawns or expansive yards. For small jobs, the walk behind Lawnaire V is a 28-inch gas operated unit that is easy to transport and use. For larger jobs, consider our 48-inch pull behind aerator or our 30-inch ride on aerator. Both provide an efficient means of reducing compaction to maximize root growth for a healthy, thick, green lawn.

Contact Sully’s today for details on renting an aerator this spring.
