As you probably already know, I’m really into green energy, as well as researching different types of sustainable homes and gardens. I have a garden of my own, in which I put a lot of effort. I believe everyone should have their own piece of land, and at least something they’ve cultivated on their own. I rarely stumble upon something that beats that amazing feeling you get while watching your own tomatoes grow.
That’s why, during the years, I’ve accumulated a large number of different gardening tools, everything from shovels to lawn mowers. So if you’re new to the whole gardening thing, you might benefit from what I have to say about some of those tools. Here’s a list of my favorites, and the reasons why I think they’re so great.
In my opinion, you’re not really doing gardening until you buy your own pruner. And I’m not saying this because I’m some kind of a gardening snob – pruners really are among the essentials. In order to grow like they’re supposed to, most plants require regular and careful pruning, which can’t be done unless you have the right tools. So if you don’t have one, you should consider buying it!
This is one of my absolute favorites, and not just because it’s useful. Pole saws are the perfect tools for those who have a garden with lots of trees and bushes. They allow you to prune and shape your plants just the way you want, and what makes them even better is the fact that all this is done with minimal effort. It’s actually kind of fun. So if you want to get serious with your gardening, you should definitely check them out.
Getting the right soil for your plants is a huge part of maintaining your garden properly, but it doesn’t stop there. You’ll also need to maintain the soil itself, because as time passes by, it loses the nutrients it had when you first bought it, or planted something in it. To keep it rich with nutrients, you’ll have to buy minerals and fertilizers, but also the right tools to get them into the soil. A cultivator is, in my opinion, your best option.
It might sound ridiculous – the thought of owning a knife that’s specially designed for digging up and dividing plants, but it’s actually necessary, at least if you don’t want to damage the plants while handling them.
If you want your lawn to look extra pretty and neat, you should consider buying yourself an edging knife. It’s a tool that looks like something between a really long knife and a shovel, and is specially designed to make it easy for you to trim the edges of your lawn.

On the other hand, if you have a nice paving somewhere in your garden, and don’t want the weeds sticking out from it, you’ll appreciate what a block paving knife can do for you.
