Today we’re going to go through all of the major gardening tools, sets, what they do, and why you can’t cut corners by not using them!
These are my personal favorite tools and brands that I trust with my plants. I base this off of their budget-friendly costs, overall efficiency, and durability.
It’s fairly easy to overspend when shopping for your equipment, that’s why with this list I did all the research for you so you can get the most with your money, and save all the time of doing your own research.
Let’s jump into it, shall we?
1 – Gardening Gloves
It might be easy for you to use just any gloves in your home, but just know there are gloves and tools made for just this for a specific reason. Here are a few reasons why you should be using these gloves especially.
2 – Watering Wand
Using the proper watering tools can be easy to undermine because why not just pour a glass of water over your plants? Well here’s why you should reconsider that method.
3 – Watering Can
Much like the wand, this proves useful when watering a larger garden and you need to be able to store a lot of water for it all. Watering cans are extremely efficient and will save you so much time in the long run if you don’t have one already.
It is so important to have a sturdy watering can that you can depend on. Often times you will find some that have leaky watering heads, they fall off, or just aren’t practical.
It’s also ideal to get a metal watering can over all else because their durability will never cease to amaze, but even a few plastic ones out there prove to be just as good.
4 – Wheelbarrow
You might be surprised just how useful a wheelbarrow turns out to be and you might use it in more ways than you originally thing.
5 – Pruning Shears
This one should be a no-brainer honestly. If you plan on pruning your vegetables, bushes, flowers
6 – Gardening Cultivator
These are probably one of my favorite tools to use for outdoor gardening, they make planting seeds and clearing dirt extremely easy!
7 – Soil Test Kits
These tools are very underplayed in gardening but can make such a huge difference in your plants lives knowing that the soil beneath them is good enough to sustain life and thrive.
8 – Hand Trowel
These tools are just a blessing, honestly. They make gardening and planting your crops extremely easy and I do pretty much everything with mine.
9 – Rake
This tool isn’t necessarily a need for everyone unless you live somewhere where you have trees in your yard that you care for. But here are my reasons for why you should have one.
10 – Hoe
Alas, here we are at number ten. Hoes are very useful but I wouldn’t always recommend one unless you have a larger area garden and you grow many plants and vegetables at once, if you’re just a hobby gardener, you probably won’t need one.
