Garden Tools for Beginners
It’s easy to go overboard when purchasing tools or supplies for any new hobby especially landscaping as these tools can take up space and be expensive. Staying focused on the basics can keep you some space and money in your pocket.
Without the right gloves, your new hobby can quickly turn into a splintery and thorny hassle. Gloves should be durable but not too bulky. It’s important to make sure they fit properly too to avoid blisters or gloves falling off.
Secateurs (hand pruners) help to reign in plants that are getting out of control. Pruners should fit easily into the palm of your hand.
Other tools are cutting tools, loppers, long handled pruners. Longer-handled loppers can be heavy. It’s important to know how far you will be reaching and what you’ll be cutting when choosing the right size.
An efficient tool for turning soil would be a garden fork. It can dig into dense soil better than a spade.
