An Overview

Gardening Tools

Whether you are starting from scratch or have a backyard garden that you want to turn into a small business, one of the basic gardening tools you will need is a hose. Gardening hose allows you to water not only your plants but your entire garden soil as well. While you garden, gloves will help protect your fingers from sharp rocks and gravel, and dirt from reaching your tender plants.

Depending on what type of work you plan on doing, a set of basic gardening tools will vary in size and price. A garden rake, garden fork, and a spade are tools that you will likely use more often than the others. Rake and fork are used for digging and excavating while spade is used for planning and laying out a garden plot.

Gardening Kits.

As mentioned above, there are several different basic gardening tools that you can buy in a gardening kit. These kits range from a few basic tools to a large assortment of tools that can help you with almost any job, no matter what kind of gardening you plan on doing. These gardening kits are excellent for getting started and are usually inexpensive.

Gardening Gloves. 

If you are going to be gardening in soil, you will need a pair of good quality gardening gloves. Make sure that the gardening gloves you choose have thick, strong fingers and can withstand the heat of the soil. You can buy these gloves at a local hardware store or online. Just make sure that they are not too cheap or too expensive, as you do not want to get too worn out after only a few uses.

Garden Rake.

 One of the most basic gardening tools is the garden rake. This is useful for sowing seeds, digging holes for the seedlings, and for removing excess dirt from the beds. To get the best results from the rake, make sure that it is made out of steel with a long handle so that you can reach into the ground while using it.

Gardening Shears. 

Although not on this list yet, the gardening shears are very important to any gardener. Even if you are just a beginner gardener, it is important to have a set of quality shears in case you need to trim branches and prune plants. Some shears are made with rubber handles so that they can be used safely around animals and children. Once you have found a set of quality shears, it will be easy for you to start trimming bushes and pruning plants.


Whether you are planting seeds or just getting dirt prepared for your vegetable garden, a spade is an essential tool to own. It is helpful to have both a shovel and a spade in your gardening tool box. A spade is useful for digging up potatoes, for example, and it is easier to use than a shovel because it does not require a forklift. Make sure that your spade has a sharp edge and that you use it regularly to get the best results.
