Gardening Must-Haves

If you are just getting started, here are a few must-have gardening tools to help you achieve a professional result in your yard or nursery.

Gloves – Keep your hands protected from splinters and thorns with a quality pair of gardening gloves. You want to select a sturdy pair of gloves that fit you well and aren’t too bulky. When not in use, store your gardening gloves somewhere out of the sun.

Hand Trowel – A hand trowel will help you efficiently dig around corners and remove weeds from your flower beds. Choose a stainless steel hand trowel for added durability.

Spade – A quality spade allows you to easily dig holes for planting and to move small mounds of soil from one area to another. Select a spade with a stainless steel head and a sturdy fiberglass handle.

Hoe – A quality hoe will help you loosen the soil to prepare for planting, and your choice of hoes depends on the type of garden you are planting. If you are planting a vegetable garden, a hoe with a wide head is a good choice, while a flower garden will require a smaller head.

Garden Hoses – A long garden hose with a good spray nozzle will help you deliver the right amount of water to each section of your garden. Select an adjustable nozzle to allow you to control the water pressure around delicate plants.

Caring for Your Gardening Tools

Keep your gardening tools in great shape with a few simple maintenance steps. After use, clean dirt and debris off the tools with a bucket of warm water and a bristle brush. Let them air dry and store them in a clean, dry location.
