5 Tools I Could Not do without in the Garden ...

By Aprille

During the summer months, I try to find time to garden as much as possible. There are 5 tools I could not do without in the garden. I’ve listed these below and provided you with information on how to find them for yourself.

Table of contents:

  1. Knee-saver
  2. Radius garden natural grip pro shovel
  3. Yard butler garden terra tiller
  4. Fiskars 9109 traditional bypass pruning shears
  5. Oxo good grips gel-e gardening trowel

5 Knee-Saver

Price: $2.79
Purchase at: amazon.com
Some people might not consider this a gardening tool, but I definitely do. There’s no way I could spend more than a few minutes planting if I didn’t use this 15 by 12 foam pad. It provides just enough cushion between my boney knees and the rocky ground I garden in.

4 Radius Garden Natural Grip PRO Shovel

Price: $32.15
Purchase at: amazon.com
This might be a bit more than what you’d consider spending on a shovel, but this one is well worth the money. I can get some fantastic leverage on this shovel. The rounded handle allows me to fit both hands at the same time. The blade also has wide places for me to place my foot when I’m digging holes.

3 Yard Butler Garden Terra Tiller

Price: $14.57
Purchase at: amazon.com
I really like having two tools combined into one. It enables me to not have to change tools when I need to switch between a rake and a hoe. This combination tool also eliminates the need to store two items, instead of one.

2 Fiskars 9109 Traditional Bypass Pruning Shears

Price: $11.31
Purchase at: amazon.com
I love these things! They have comfortable handles and I can use them with either hand I tend to most things right-handed, but there are times when I need to use my left hand instead. The blades don’t stick together when I have to trim sappy plants. There is a self-cleaning sap groove on these shears to prevent sticky blades.

1 OXO Good Grips Gel-e Gardening Trowel

Price: $13.22
Purchase at: amazon.com
I’m not sure what I would do without my trowel. This is by far my must-need garden tool. I find the measurement markings on the metal portion of the trowel to be extremely useful. So many times I’ve planted things and wondered if I should get a ruler to check the depth. The serrated edges are also excellent for tearing into bags of soil.

Hopefully you’ll find some of these tools to be very useful. I’m thankful for all the advancements in garden tools. No more digging with a stick or rock! Do you have a favorite tool you use in your gardening efforts? How did it come to be your prized tool?
