Essential Equipment for Gardening

Apr 3, 2008
Every one who is at heart a gardener loves to potter about the garden with at least one of their gardening supplies in hand. For every gardener the list of gardening supplies varies. There are however a few gardening supplies that are staples for every gardener.

A shovel for digging is the most important item on your list. I t can be used for digging trees and shrubs. It can also help to plant perennials. A spade can be another useful item to help in smaller more established areas. A spading fork is a type of spade that allows you to loosen the hard soil for planting.

A hoe is useful for preparing the ground. It can help you manage those weeds that come in your garden. A mattock will let you dig around shrubs and trees. Both are indispensable when it comes to gardening.

Prying rocks from your newly tilled garden can be a challenge but there is a tool that will help with this too. A prying bar will save a lot of strain on your back.

Backaches can be part of your gardening routine if you're lugging mulch, compost or even dirt around in your garden. The answer to this is to have a wheelbarrow in your gardening supply. You must however get a wheel barrow that will do the job well or you will be picking up that dirt from the ground.

A garden will benefit from a good quality mulch or compost. It also needs good soil or dirt. You can give your vegetables and herbs an advantage by composting and mulching the base of the plants. This is where having a wheelbarrow can help you.

Having so many tools at hand may seem like enough but there is still another important item. Some type of watering system such as a watering can with a long nozzle lets you have a gentle water flow for new seedlings. Nozzle heads on a garden hose can also be adjusted to different settings to allow for watering.

Having a variety of options lets you choose the right tool for the job. You don't have to spend a lot of money on your gardening tools and they should still be able to outlast your flowers.
