Feel like doing a little DIY at home? Instead of buying expensive and rarely used home improvement equipment, consider renting. Major home improvement chains not only sell products, they rent them, too. You can find things like tillers, trenchers, sod cutters, chainsaws and blowers that are the best of their kind and a fraction of the cost of buying. Renting also lets you try things before committing to a full purchase. Rent by the day or the week, and turn your basic lawn into a professional-looking showcase.
