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.

For the biggest lawn jobs, a zero-turn mower can save any homeowner or landscaper a lot of time and provide an excellent cut. Our 52” zero-turn lawn mower provides efficient service for any residential or commercial setting.

Large zero-turn mowers cover significantly more ground in a short time over a standard mower. With 52 inches of width and the engine located in the back, the operator has an open view of the lawn to complete the job. Our riding mower has steering bars that make it easy to complete a 180-degree turn in tight spaces, including maneuvering around trees, flower gardens, and other obstacles without having to back up.

Contact Sully’s today to rent our zero-turn mower, or for those small jobs, ask us about our standard 20” push mower.

Smooth out or level a bumpy or uneven yard, smooth fresh topsoil, and press in seeds for a new lawn to improve germination—these tasks are made easier with a lawn roller from Sully’s. Our 24-inch lawn roller is a push or pull style that is compatible with a garden tractor, and at 300 pounds, is the ideal weight for most yard projects, according to lawn professionals. This unit also improves the appearance of established lawns and is ideal for setting in sod.

For tougher jobs, more uneven terrain, and expansive areas, Sully’s ride-on roller (also used for asphalt rolling) is an excellent option. This 35-inch, 1.5-ton roller has multiple applications, from leveling deep irregularities in terrain to preparing construction sites and leveling roads for paving. Contact Sully’s today to rent our push/pull lawn roller or our ride-on asphalt roller.

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.

Advanced planning and beginning work in early spring on new flower and vegetable gardens are the key ways to maximize prime growing season in Northeast Ohio. Once you have mapped out the size and location of your new garden, rent your tiller from Sully’s to ensure your bed is ready for planting.

Tilling soil loosens hard ground and breaks up clumps of soil that would inhibit seed and root growth. The process of tilling creates soft, loose soil that is healthier for new plants both for weed prevention and water penetration. It also makes it easier to free up and remove rocks and debris that can interfere with planting and growth.

Sully’s tillers are available for any size job. Mid tine tillers are 5 hp with a tilling wide of 26.4 inches and rear tine tillers are 8 hp with a 20-inch tilling width. Our team of experts is on hand to help you choose the tiller that is right for your job. Call today.

Refinished and polished concrete has become a popular choice for home flooring, especially in kitchens and 3- and 4-seasons rooms, because of its durability.

Sully’s Rental has exactly what you need to grind, shape, and retexture your concrete floors. Our EDCO 50200 concrete floor grinder can be used wet or dry and can be outfitted to use on green or cured concrete, to remove hardened deposits or coatings, to clean surfaces, or to groove or render a surface slip resistant.
