Posted on August 10th, 2020 by Devine Bros

When it comes to having a successful garden, we are here to say that a natural knack for gardening or what one might consider a green thumb isn’t a necessity. In fact, with the right tools, your work might just get cut in half. Make sure you know what kind of tools work best with the kind of weeding, planting, or designing you plan on doing. You’ll see how in no time your gardening 101 skills will go from amateur to expert!

Regular Maintenance

Every garden requires daily maintenance, in order to keep it alive and thriving. So, what do you need in order to keep up with this work?

  • Shovels and rakes: these two tools are essential pieces of any collection. They are needed for mixing dirt and making the ground hospitable for your plants. They represent the most basic, yet important, tools in any gardening essential kits.
  • Gloves and boots: If you’re not afraid of getting down and dirty, then you need not invest in these items. However, they help a lot when it comes to staying neat after an entire day of playing in the mud. 
  • Hoses and nozzles: Made to make your life easier, you need these pieces of equipment so that you can nourish your plants every day with water without the hassle of a watering pot. 

More Dedicated Work

Although most people just have simple flower gardens, many have large areas of fruits and vegetables, too. If you fall into that category, here’s what your tool shed should all include:

  • Wheelbarrows and wheels: When it comes to transportation of your vegetation, wheelbarrows are here to make your life ten times easier. 
  • Garden trowel: This tool is the cousin of the shovel, but made flat. It is shaped this way in order to smooth and dig harder to reach spots more efficiently. 
  • Tape measures: If you are a dedicated fruit and vegetable gardener then you know how important it is to properly spread out your crops. In order to make sure everything is distanced as it should be, keep a tape measurer at hand to help.
