“A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them. ” Liberty Hyde Bailey
If you are a novice or experienced gardener, then you know the importance of good gardening tools. They really do play an important role in successful gardening. Good tools also have an impact on how much you may enjoy gardening. The difference between cheap, flimsy tools versus sturdy, well manufactured tools can mean the difference between a sprained wrist, unnecessary cuts, and pulled muscles!
Gardening is a wonderful hobby filled with so much fulfillment, so having the right tools for the job is essential. The last thing you want to do is get an injury because the poorly manufactured garden hoe broke or bent while you were working in the garden soil. Or, the hand trowel snaps cutting your hand because you hit a large rock under the soil where you couldn’t see it.
Let’s look at what I believe are the Top 10 Essential Tools for the Home Gardener are for both a flower and vegetable garden. Watch this YouTube Video for all the details!
In conclusion, having the right tools for gardening is essential for success. A gardener should have a good pair of gloves, a hand trowel, a garden fork, a garden hoe, a garden rake, garden shears, a garden hose, a garden sprayer, a garden wheelbarrow, and a garden trellis. With these tools, a gardener will be able to maintain a beautiful and productive flower and vegetable garden.
I certainly hope you are encouraged to grow your own food. Even if you start with only two or three of these things, that’s a great start!
