8 Basic Gardening Tools for Garden Owners
Whether you’re a beginner or an avid gardener, here are 8 of the basic gardening tools that every one with a garden needs to be able to take care of your garden easily.
1. Garden Gloves
Gardening can involve getting your hands dirty, irritated, scraped up & unprotected. Because of this, you’ll know why gloves are the first thing to add to the tools you need.
Investing in a good pair of hand gloves will make gardening even more enjoyable.
2. Hand fork
Another small but essential garden tool is the hand fork. Hand forks give you the ability to break into hard and lump filled soil.
3. Digging fork
It’s a larger version of a hand fork – with a long-handle and a straight rather than angled prongs. It’s used for loosening soil in larger areas or to break up hard soil before digging into them.
4. Hand trowel
When it comes to planting & gardening, a hand trowel is something irreplaceable. Used for digging, applying, smoothing or moving small amounts of dirt or soil.
If you are planning on doing some big digging, using a hand trowel would take you all day long.
This is where the shovel comes into play and would take a short amount of time as compared to the hand trowel. Make sure the type you choose is tough and of good quality since digging large areas would put the tool under some serious physical pressure.
