We have a twenty foot rotary hoe retrofitted with linear Gandy electric drive seeders for interseeding cover crop into standing corn at V5. It has a Cat III three point hitch attachment. The interseeder can be towed by a truck via a hitch pin, or 2 5/16" ball.
The rental cost varies depending on what it will be used for. Contact us for more information.
Rain barrels capture storm water from your gutters and collect it in a barrel. This water can then be used for watering plants and grass. We have several rain barrels for sale that are $60 each.
RAIN GARDEN DESIGN
Wandering what to do with that low spot in your yard that constantly puddles? Install a rain garden!
Rain gardens are designed to collect storm water runoff and hold it in the garden so it can naturally infiltrate back into the ground within 24 hours, rather than collecting debris and other pollutants on it's way to the storm sewer.
