Garden Equipment


Gardening has since long a very common hobby for people across the world. Garden menus and stores are full of gardening tools, many of which are highly specialized while others are very useful. The gardening equipment you need depends on the shape and size of your garden, your age and physical strength, and whether you want to get the job done in a haste or prefer to relax and take your own time.

The common basic equipment needed by all the gardeners includes a shovel or spade, a hoe, a rake, a trowel, and pruning tools. There is a wide selection of styles available for each of these tools. The choice is based on personal preference and price range. You can get the best value for the price range you choose by knowing each tool’s uses and particular qualities when comparison shopping. Generally speaking best deals are struck by buying tools at the end of the gardening season.

Different types of Garden Equipments

A garden shovel has pointed blades that is mounted to the handle at an angle and is designed to dig holes and move soil. A spade has a flat blade and is designed for cutting rather than lifting or moving soil. Shovel and spade handle styles are either long or short with a straight shaft or a D-shaped handgrip. Garden and spading forks have four tines and are used for turning over garden soil. A spading fork has flat tines (sometimes with diamond of triangular backs) and is used for turning already loose soil. A hoe is used for preparing seedbeds, making furrows, removing weeds, and breaking up encrusted soil.
