What tools does a beginner gardener must need?
Start with these basic tools for gardening.
Wheelbarrow, a very useful tool in the garden for carrying large loads. Especially if you cultivate the garden rather than the vegetable garden, this is a very useful tool. But don’t imagine the wooden wheelbarrow with only one wheel: there are modern ones, metallic and with two wheels. Easy to move and light, very useful for easily transporting even heavy loads.
The spade must have a very solid handle which is essential to be able to work the soil at its best, especially if full of stones or clay, and to work the earth near the trees without damaging the roots
It must have a very solid handle – and here the discussion goes back to the good quality of the tools – an indispensable feature to work the soil better, especially if full of stones or clay, and to work the earth near the trees without damaging the roots.
There are different shapes, sizes, and materials, more or less expensive depending on the case. To get an idea, or just to start your search, you can click the banners below.
A fork is used to move large quantities of manure from one side to the other. The forks are usually used to move large quantities of manure from one side to the other. This is a tool that may or may not serve you, depending on the case and the type of gardening you do. For example, you can also use the spade instead of the fork, but the fork is highly recommended if you are dealing with manure.
The choice of the fork is also very important to the type of terrain. For example, models are best suited to harder and more clayey soils, as you can see below.
The fork with curved teeth
This tool is used to work the soil, chop it up and ensure proper ventilation: the goal is to make the soil softer on the surface. Do not confuse the fork with curved teeth with the spade: this tool is lighter and has round and slightly oval teeth, while the spade, in addition to weighing more, has triangular teeth.
The watering can
You can also equip your garden with the most beautiful and modern irrigation system in the world, but the watering can always serve you. Especially when you have to wet the small seedbeds, water the flowers and small crops: in these cases, you need to wet the earth around the plant in a delicate way and never start a strong jet that wets the leaves and flowers.
Rake is used to cleaning the garden. It is composed of a handle and a final part with straight teeth, although on the market, there are also rakes with curved teeth. This tool you need to clean the garden; it consists of a handle and a straight-toothed end part, although there are also rakes with curved teeth on the market. In addition to cleaning, you can also use the rake to remove dry leaves, cover newly planted seeds with soil, and bring the soil to an even level. Some rake models are also used to break up and work clayey soils surfaces and free the lawn from moss.
On the other hand, the hoe is used to remove weeds, cut the roots, and eat up the earth. You can buy it in a mini version, the zipping tool, smaller and with a pointed blade. Then there is the even smaller hole for the bulbs, particularly useful because it reaches where the normal hoe cannot do due to size issues.
The planter is used for repotting but also for extracting carrots and other vegetables from the ground. Generally, the hollow one is used without a point, making holes without compressing the earth too much.
Gardening scissors are used a lot in vegetable gardens but also for fruit plants. It is very important to use them well: the cutting part must always be in contact with the part of the branch, which is left on the plant so as not to damage it.
Last but certainly not least: work gloves. You can do gardening at any time of the year, but what can never be missing are gloves. They protect you from thorns, from redness due to prolonged contact with plants, and protect the skin from irritation. They just can’t miss it!
The tools mentioned above are very useful for plant growth and they will set you up with a good start in gardening.
