Garden tools for beginners

1-Gloves

  • Gloves should be durable but not too bulky
  • We always recommend the fit, as poorly fitting gloves can cause blisters or result in accidents from slipping off.
  • Fabrics that are water resistant, but also breathable, will help keep hands cool and comfortable.
  • Longer cuffs protect wrists and forearms from scratches and keep soil from getting in.
  • Always make sure you store your gloves away from the sun and insects , this will make your gloves last longer

2-Hand Pruners or pruning sheers

  • Anvil pruners are best for dead wood and can cause crush injuries to fresh, green stems and branches.
  • Bypass Pruners are better for live plants and green wood.
  • We recommend that Pruners should fit easily in the palm of your hand.
  • Ratcheting pruners provide increased cutting strength, perfect for anyone with reduced hand strength or arthritis.
  • You should always make sure that your cutting tools are sharp and cleaned regularly 

3-Garden Fork

  • Forks with a slight curve  are useful for scooping mulch or turning compost piles, much like a pitchfork.
  • Straight tines are better for digging; great for compacted, rocky, or clay soil.
