Gardening Supplies An Important Part Of Outdoor Growing Season

Apr 4, 2008
The type of merchandise and the quantity of gardening supplies a person will need will depend on the size and type of their garden as well as their budget. For most backyards, gardening supplies consist of some fertilizer and pesticides along with the seeds or starter plants and a few necessary tools. For the experienced gardeners there will be a few additional items in their bag of tricks. A decent pair of gloves for instance along with some bug repellant and something with which to scrape the mud from their shoes before going back into the house.

Depending on what they are planting, a few wooden stakes, a small hammer and some string to mark their rows may be part of the gardening supplies arsenal along with a watering can or a hose long enough to reach from the outside faucet to the garden. The hose can be used for watering the new plants as well as rinsing the dirt of the hands once the planting is complete.

There are numerous places from which to buy gardening supplies, the most obvious is a garden store, but the quality of the merchandise available at most of them may place their price of the gardening supplies outside of the available budget. Many large discount stores also offer supplies at a reduce price but having them last longer than a year or two is questionable.

Some Supplies For Comfort Are Not Necessary

Working under a tight budget may make choosing the gardening supplies based on their need rather than making the job easier. For example, knee pads may protect the knees if the gardener kneels down on some rocks, but they are not necessary to having a good garden. Simply being careful when kneeling down can keep the knees protected from harm.

A decent pair of gardening gloves can be found for just a few dollars while some others may cost $20 or more. Consider how often they are going to be used when making the decision and only pay as much for the gardening supplies as they will be worth. If buying gloves just to keep the hands clean, cheaper ones will serve the purpose just as well.

Before heading to the store to buy gardening supplies, look through a few magazines or catalogs to see what is available and how they can help with the task at hand. When arriving at the store stick to the list of gardening supplies put together at home and make the return on the garden's investment pay for itself during the season.
