Gardening Tools To Get You Started

When you first start out you will probably think that gardening should only be done with your hands. Before too long you will probably start to realize just how much more work you can get done using gardening tools. It is easy to be tempted into buying a whole bunch of tools after you've been working with your hands for a long time. Try not to give in to this urge. It's too easy to spend too much money on tools that end up not being useful to you at all. Begin with a small store of tools you will use often and then add others as you need them. You might discover that you don't need to have a bunch of tools, especially if you have a small garden. Start your tool collection with these gardening tools.
For the more delicate flowers and plants, a garden space can be incredibly useful to have on hand. Spades can help you uproot pesky weeds. If you are worried about damaging the bases of your plants when you garden you can use the spade to help you avoid problems. You can also use them to help you plant seeds. You probably won't use your spade every single day, but you will be glad you have it on hand when you have delicate earth work to get done. Your spade will save you lots of time and effort with a bunch of different gardening tasks and projects.
Kneelers are also a good idea. Most gardening tasks will require you to spend time on your hands and knees or crouched down. Garden kneelers can easily be made from big pieces of Styrofoam or similar materials that you can use to lean your knees on. You can also buy mats made especially for gardeners. Mats and kneelers are used to help ease the wear and tear on your knees that comes from gardening. Many gardeners choose to use mats and kneelers because they help keep their clothing from getting to worn while they garden.
If you plan on doing ground gardening, you are going to want to have a shovel on hand. A shovel with a long handle is a very important tool to have on hand, especially if your garden is going to be large. A shovel is perfect for scooping up and moving dirt short distances. Shovels produce better results than you would get if you tried to move that dirt by hand. Transporting large quantities of earth, dirt and other things is much harder to do without a shovel. Your long handled shovel will save you a lot of time and strain as you work in your garden. Gardening is something that most people dream of doing at least once or twice during their lives. As a beginner you will probably find yourself tempted to buy all of the gardening tools that you come across. All of the tools will seem necessary. The best thing to do is to start out with a few tools that will be useful no matter what your garden's size will be. After your first tool purchase you can buy the tools you need as you need them. This is how you get all of the tools you need without wasting any money!
