Below are some of the tools which we believe each gardener must have.

Spades and forks used in gardens can be helpful while doing tasks like digging, turning soils upside down, aerating or making edges.

Rake is a very good tool for cleaning up debris such as dead leaves, twigs or hay from your garden or lawn. There are different types of rakes available – those which are fan shaped ones being especially handy!


    Garden shovels are necessary for any kind of work in the garden. Apart from digging and transplanting plants, they can also be used for lifting things up, moving them around etcetera.

    Round point shovels have rounded blades with pointed tips which makes them good at digging and scooping things up.

    A good shovel should have an ergonomic handle designed to rest between your armpit and shoulder so that you can dig standing tall without straining your back.


      Rakes may help in leveling soil, spreading mulch or clearing outdoor spaces off debris. If you need one for heavy duty tasks choose that with flexible tines – or for more stability consider getting a bow rake which has stronger bows.

      If you have large piles of debris to clear away it might be worth investing into long-handled leaf grabber with scissor action limiting bending and back strain. Also telescoping leaf rake could come handy.


        Secateurs are universally recognized as must-have tools by both novice gardeners and experienced horticulturists alike; they offer multitasking power like no other tool when it comes to dead-heading flowers; pruning shrubs; harvesting home-grown produce – just name any gardening related task!

        Choose the pair that suits your needs best – feel how handles fit into hands, whether they’re made for right-handed person or left-handed one; whether there’s a guarantee for maximum comfort and cutting precision during use; this ensures best cutting experience possible.


          Gloves protect hands when deadheading flower beds or trimming back brambles, keeping them free off sharp tools or sharp plants. An avid gardener may have more than one pair for different tasks while an occasional gardener may get by with just one pair.

          Avoid hand tools that have handles too short which might strain wrist and finger muscles, search for ones equipped with padded handles, shock absorption technology and ergonomic features designed to take pressure off your hands.


            Trowels are necessary tools in every gardener’s arsenal. They can be used for digging holes, planting seeds or bulbs as well as weeding.

            A good quality trowel should both be strong and lightweight at the same time; it should have an ash or fiberglass handle together with heavyweight steel blade to give you best results.

            A hori-hori gardening knife works as a trowel and shovel combined into one making it ideal for cutting through roots or breaking up tough weeds.

            Digging Fork

              Digging fork (or garden fork; spading fork) is an indispensable tool when it comes to unearthing root crops and moving compost around; thanks to its thin tines which penetrate hard soils deeper than traditional shovels or spades can do, digging forks are especially great on stony ground.

              Spade Forks

                A spading fork can turn and aerate heavy soil better than any other type of fork because it has wider prongs that are also flatter; while border forks, which are smaller and lighter, work best for weeding around perennial plants in tight areas or digging up flower beds.

                Ho-Mi Digger

                  To ensure longevity of this tool, clean off caked-on dirt and rust with a wire brush regularly, and apply a light coat of paste wax on wooden handles to protect and condition them.

                  Translated as the “little ground spear” in Korean, the Ho-Mi Digger is designed like a miniature plow for tilling soil, digging holes and weeding; it also has a flexible fan rake head that makes fall clean-up a breeze.


                    Garden scissors are necessary for maintaining beautiful gardens – make sure you choose ones that feel sturdy in your hand and cut well.

                    Efficiently prune small shrubs, roses or small branches on trees with these bypass pruners; their unique curved blades “bypass” each other during cutting so cuts appear cleaner while being lightweight enough for easy handling.


                      Two-handed garden scissors called pruning shears or secateurs let users trim plant stems easily as well as hard shrub branches. Look for models that fit comfortably in both hands (some feature shock absorption technology or padding on handles).

                      Weeders come in handy when removing pesky weeds from hard to reach places: they can be handheld or long-handled with ability to extend into tight spaces where unwanted growth needs collecting.


                        Whether you’re pruning roses or cutting back thorny bramble, shears are essential tools for gardening; opt for pairs providing clean cuts along with extra safety features to maximize efficiency.

                        For heavier-duty cutting tasks such as thick stemmed lopping – choose loppers equipped with long handles for added leverage; aim for sharp blades that stay strong over time.
