Don’t forget your gardening gloves! That is, if you care much about your hands. The gardening gloves will help to protect your hands. If your hands are not used to gardening, then your fingers could easily get blisters. You also need to be protected from stones and sticks.
4 A Garden Spade
Garden spades make great tools for planting plants. They also help to get at the bottom of those weeds. Sure, you will not be using this tool every day, but you will need it sometimes and it makes the job a whole lot easier.

Are you going to forget about the rake? This is a sturdy rake. It is usually short and has teeth that are strong steel. You will first use it to level and smooth the garden.
