Do you have an upcoming weekend DIY project, or maybe your lawn mower gave out? Well, the city can help with that — for free. That’s right, the City of San Antonio has a community tool shed program that allows residents, businesses, and community groups to borrow tools at no cost. Let’s break down the details.

Residents and community members who are interested in borrowing tools must complete a Request and Release Form. Here’s a list of tools available to borrow:

  • Lawnmowers
  • Leaf Blowers
  • Loppers
  • Rakes
  • Shovels
  • Tree Pruners
  • Weed Eaters

Locals can save a trip to Home Depot or Lowe’s and check out these tools with advance notice, completed forms, and proper identification. Tools can be checked out on Thursday or Friday mornings and returned on Monday mornings.
If you have more questions, you can call the community tool shed team at (210) 207-0154 or email them.
