Time is money, and you want to be as prepared as possible for a wide variety of jobs. These tools are a great starting point in the hardscaping business and are needed at most job sites. You probably already own some of them.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
You need PPE before you begin. Plan for the best and expect the worst. 

Steel toe boots are necessary to protect your feet from heavy materials on the jobsite. Make sure every team member has a pair of safety glasses when cutting and chiseling to protect eyes from debris. Cutting pavers, slabs, and stone with power tools can cause hearing damage, so don’t forget ear protection. See our Ear Protection Tips video for more information. Crew members should wear dust masks in order to be compliant with OSHA standards and to prevent lung damage. Your hands are your livelihood. Work gloves go a long way to protect some of your most important tools.
