Essential Garden Tools


If you are a beginner in gardening then there are some beginner’s tools that you must have to successfully garden. So, you should not just look forward to buy planter sets online India but a few other tools too that are both essential and come in handy when working around in a garden. Here is your checklist for some garden tools:


1. Hand Trowel 
Hand trowel comes in handy for taking out weeds, transplanting herbs and bedding plants, and planting in containers. Look for a trowel with a broad blade as it will help in digging rocky soil and weeds. The blade should be made from stainless steel as they tend to be sturdy and last longer. Make sure you have a firm grip on the handle to work easily with it.

Ill-fitted gloves can cause blisters and may frequently slip off from your hands. You must always keep your gloves safe from water, sunlight, and insects. 


3. Spade
