Whether you’re looking to try your hand at gardening, or you’re just looking to make gardening work a little easier this year, it’s important that you have the right tools for the job. Below are 6 gardening tools that gardeners of all levels should own.
Why would you try to tough it out with your bare hands? A good pair of gardening gloves can keep away blisters and protect you from thorns. And do we even have to mention the bacteria and fungus that can be in your dirt and fertilizer? Keep yourself safe by investing in a pair (or two) of quality gardening gloves.
Often overlooked, the ever versatile pocket knife can get you out of a jam.
Need to cut some twine or open a bag of fertilizer? Maybe dig a small spot of soil? The pocket knife can get the job done in a pinch.
Sometimes dry dirt and rocks can make digging a little tougher than usual. That’s when a spade comes in handy. With its sharpened edge, this tool can make easy work out of digging through roots and hard soil.
A favorite tool for many gardeners, the hand trowel is great tool to use for precision digging around other plants and can be used for aerating and weeding as well.
Want to remove excess branches or stems? Are there any rotting or dead leaves that need to be removed? Pruners are the way to go. Use these to carefully snip and shape your plants to keep from damaging them.
Your soil is an essential part of your garden. Make sure you are turning and smoothing out your soil. A small hand rake will help you clear out dead leaves and dried roots with precision so you don’t damage your plants.
