Gardening Tools – Where to Start?

Want to start gardening but not sure where to begin? With so many different types of gardening tools, how do you know which you absolutely need? Here are some of the essential gardening tools every gardener should have.

  • Scissors and Pruning Shears. Pruning shears are good for trees, shrubs, and bushes, and regular household scissors are great for deadheading flowers, harvesting small veggies, opening bags, and cutting string.
  • A Shovel and a Soil Knife. Whether digging, dividing, or weeding, these tools will help you do it. Shovels with shorter handles are usually easier to carry, maneuver, and store. gardening tools
  • Rakes. Remember, you need different rakes for different tasks. Shrub rakes are perfect for small spaces, a hard rake will be useful for turning soil over, and a fan rake is great for cleaning and tidying.
  • Water Hose. Proper watering is vital for the success of your garden, so make it easier on yourself. A hose with a shut-off valve will save you money on your water bill as well as a lot of time walking back and forth to the spigot.
  • Sun Tools. While you’re taking care of your garden, don’t forget to take care of yourself! Always apply sunscreen before you go out in the sun, and reapply after sweating a great deal. Don’t forget areas like the top of the ears and the back of the neck! A broad-brimmed hat will help protect these hard-to-reach places. And of course, gloves will protect your hands from thorns, shears, etc.

Just like with plants, the most important part of any tool is quality. When you’re looking for the best quality wholesale landscaping, look no further than 3am Growers in Tallassee, AL.
