Different types of gardens require different types of garden tools. The hardware stores mostly cater to a wide range of tools, but there are stores that specialize in the most expensive type of garden tool that screams quality. Wherever you decide to buy, here are some tips to advise you.

Do you have a small or large garden? A small garden will not require the same large equipment that would be of use in an extensive one. A lawnmower is not necessary if you only have a small strip of grass. Another point to consider is who does most of the gardening? Some tools are too heavy for women to use.

When shopping for pruning shears, make sure the blade always stays sharp to avoid damaging the plant. Look for models with blades that can be sharpened or replaced, models with tension control and the sizes that best suit your hands. Pruning shears usually cost around $ 50 - $ 130.

Hedge cutters or shears are useful, but only if you have a hedge, or plan to grow one. Some hedge trimmers have curved blades to prevent the branches from slipping when they are cut.

The forks are used to flip and aerate the compost and break the clods of earth. The cheaper ones are often not strong enough for heavy soil, so opt for robustness instead of price. The forks usually cost around $ 30 - $ 100.

A shovel has a spade shovel and is best used to move soil and garden soil. A blade has a flat blade ideal for cutting edges, digging and dividing plants. The edge of a blade must be kept sharp so that a clean and efficient cut will cause the least amount of damage to the plants. These are a basic garden need and usually, cost between $ 30 and $ 50.

A pruning saw is used to prune larger trees and shrubs, while pruning shears are for plants like roses. Pruning saws have a narrow curved blade that fits between stems or branches and cuts them easily while pulling the saw backward. They are approximately $ 27- $ 55.

A chipper hoe is a useful tool to get rid of small weeds. The Dutch or push-hoe is a bit easier to use since the action required to use it does not obstruct both the neck and the shoulder.

A rake is also a basic requirement for the garden. The strong rake with the flat head and sharp metal spikes are used to smooth a garden bed and remove the last of the protuberances and weeds. The plastic rake is used to collect leaves and grass clippings only.

Gardening tools do not have to be expensive. Flea markets and garage sales can be excellent places to buy a great tool.
