The city of McAllen has unveiled a new program giving all residents a chance to beautify their yards for free.
Residents will have free access to a community tool shed located at 1516 North 15th Street, so they can spruce up their yards whenever they want at no cost.
Officials said the program aims to encourage residents to keep their homes up to code.
“It was created for the community—for residents of the community to have a resource to borrow any kind of garden tool to help beautify their properties,” Director of Environmental and Health Code Enforcement Steven Kotsatos said.
The community shed is equipped with several tools that can be loaned out for up to 72 hours, including brand new lawnmowers, weed eaters, rakes, shovels, and power washers. The tools can be picked up Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
