Must have Gardening tools

Keep your garden in top shape with 5 best gardening tools. Whether you have potted plants on your balcony, a patio, or a whole yard for gardening, using the right tools for gardening makes a tremendous difference. The many choices for gardening tools can be a bit overwhelming, and there are lots of unnecessary tools on the market that aren’t worth taking up valuable storage space.

A hand trowel is a must-have multi-purpose tool for digging, scooping soil, removing weeds, and planting. Trowels come in different blade shades, with long or short handles, measuring gauges for seed and bulb depth, hanging holes, and various other features.Depending on your personal strength, a heavier trowel is better because the heft will make it easier for you to break up compacted soil.

For container gardening, a pair of light, all-purpose gardening gloves with nitrile coating is usually sufficient. Backyard gardeners should have both thinner planting gloves as well as a pair of gloves for heavy-duty tasks such as digging and pruning as a layer of protection against blisters, abrasion, and thorns.

A sturdy watering can with at least one gallon (preferably two gallons) capacity should be made of heavy-duty plastic or galvanized steel.What to Look For: Choose one with a detachable rose (the device that makes a soft spray) so that when you detach the rose you can reach the soil around plants without getting them wet.

Those with a yard or large container plants will want something more heavy duty than bypass shears. To cut through thicker materials such as to prune dead twigs and branches, you’ll need anvil pruners.What to Look For: High-end models have replaceable blades

The other long-handled tool essential in backyard gardening is a cultivator that loosens and breaks up crusty soil, and prepares it for watering and incorporating fertilizer. It also helps you remove weeds. The standard handle length is 54 inches, which works well for most gardeners.What to Look For: Cultivators come in several styles; models with a curved hook and narrow sharp pointy end give you the most flexibility when working around plants.

Having the right gardening tools helps you get the job done quicker and more efficiently, with less physical effort and strain on your most valuable and indispensable gardening toolsβ€”your hands and back!
