gardening tools for a small garden essential tools we all need

Another beautiful day in the garden and I am feeling fanastic – even if a little burned. Below I’ve written my thoughts on shovels, spades, hedge trimmers, forks, gardening tools and Gardening tools for a small garden – Essential tools we all need. Remember, that you can always compare prices of garden hammocks and many other things using our online comparison tool. And don’t forget to join our mailing list where I’ll be including some new words on garden plants and seeds.

Different kinds of gardens require different kinds of garden tools. Hardware stores mostly cater for a wide range of tools, but there are shops that specialize in the more expensive kind of garden tool that shouts quality. Wherever you decide to shop, here are a few pointers to advise you.

Do you have small garden or a large one? A small garden will not require the same large equipment that would be of use in an extensive one. A ride-on mower is unnecessary if you only have a small strip of lawn. Another point to consider is who does most of the gardening? Some tools are too heavy for use by women.

When you buy secateurs make sure the blade always stays sharp to avoid damaging the plant. Look for models that have blades that can be sharpened or replaced, models with tension control and with sizes that best fit your hands. Secateurs usually cost around £30-£50, but before buying check the user reviews on Amazon.  You can often buy them at a significant discount there.
