Garden Cart or Wheelbarrow
When it comes to useful horticulture tools, wheelbarrows top the list.
If you’re a beginning gardener, you may feel a wheelbarrow is unnecessary or too expensive. But if you have a large yard, a wheelbarrow can make transporting leaves, plant matter, and other materials easier and faster.
A wheelbarrow is also useful if transporting heavy landscaping materials because it doesn’t require as much heavy lifting on your part.
You can use your wheelbarrow or garden cart to transport debris from your yard to your trash or your compost bin. You can also use it to carry your garden veggies back to the house.
If you’re serious about gardening, a shovel needs to be on your list of gardening tools. You want a long-handled shovel with a pointed tip. Like the trowel, the pointed tip helps you break up soil and dig larger holes with ease.
Look for a sturdy shovel with a comfortable grip. Wooden-handled shovels are the most common type you’ll see. They’re budget-friendly and good for beginners.
Fiberglass-handled shovels are another option. Fiberglass-handled shovels are both sturdy and won’t give you splinters.
Having a pair of gardening gloves help protect your hands while shoveling or raking.
A Quality Mower
If you have a beautiful garden and you want to show it off, you need to keep your yard in top shape. No matter how stunning your garden is, no one will notice it if you have an unkempt yard.
If you have a small yard or want to reduce the noise you make, consider buying a push mower. Make sure you get one that cuts cleanly to promote a healthy lawn.
A mulching mower is also a useful tool because it chops up the grass so it can be redeposited as fertilizer. Proper lawn care and maintenance are the key to a healthy, beautiful yard.
