“The List”

Pruners: A gardener’s steadfast companion! We swear by our Felco pruners—essential for various tasks like pruning, trimming, and snipping spent plants. Remember, reserve these beauties solely for gardening; they’re not for anything else! Be sure to add a holster for these puppies!

Watering Can: Sometimes overlooked but incredibly important! With a range of options available, pick a size suitable for the garden. For larger spaces, aim for at least a 1-gallon capacity to reduce frequent refills. If you’re going for looks, check this out!

Gloves: A bit of a debate! Some love them, some loathe them. It depends on the task at hand. Use gloves for dirty or uncertain areas; skip them if dexterity or tactile sense is crucial.

Shovel Set: This might mean having a variety! An average-sized shovel for the bigger jobs like planting trees and a smaller one for those tiny holes and plants. Don’t forget the hand shovel—an excellent stocking stuffer!

Wheelbarrow: Tailor-made for your garden size! In our case, a standard-sized wheelbarrow suits our yard. Consider a smaller one for maneuvering into tight spots; it makes a world of difference!

Gardening tools arranged neatly on a bench: trowels, snips, shovels, weed pullers.

“The Bonus List”

Augers: Our go-to for swift hole digging! Perfect for bulbs and smaller plants. For shrubs and trees, consider larger augers but note, they require a bigger drill!

Potting Bench: Not a small purchase, but a game-changer! Ideal for potting new plants or organizing gardening gear. Pre-built options or DIY plans offer versatile choices.

Hose Reel: An ankle-saver! Tripping over a tangled hose is a gardener’s nightmare. Invest in a retractable hose reel, and some even blend in seamlessly with the surroundings!

Grow Lights: Indoor gardening made easier! LED grow lights are perfect for seed starting and nurturing microgreens. Minimal energy usage with maximum growth potential.

Garden Tower: The ultimate space-saver! While a splurge, it’s a dream for small-space gardeners, even those with balconies, enabling homegrown produce.
