6 Garden Tool Must Haves
If you are thinking about planting a garden this year, there are some essential tools you will want to have on hand. Whether you choose to plant vegetables, perennial herbs or are just weeding your landscaping, the correct tools will make your life so much easier and even – I dare say – enjoyable.
Of course you do not need to spend an arm and a leg for them. Start with some basics and expand from there. Take a look below at 5 garden tool must haves that you will want to snag for this growing season!
Basic Garden Tool Set
Everyone needs a basic garden tool set to get started. Sets typically include a trowel, cultivator, and transplanter and/or pruners. Though I do like the idea of the weeder in this set or there is an added hoe in this 5-piece set.
A trug tub is a flexible and lightweight tub that can be used to hold all of your garden waste. As you prune or weed you can place the clippings in the tub for disposable. The tub is waterproof, easy to clean, and easy to carry. You can find these for around $9-$15 depending on size. Of course any container will do, but I am always looking for a way to collect my weeds.
Forget about lugging huge and heavy hoses around the garden. A pocket hose is a lightweight and collapsible hose that makes watering easier. You can find one for around $10 and they are built to last.
When choosing gloves, you want something tough and durable. These landscaping gloves by Garden Odyssey fit the bill for around $10. They protect the delicate wrist, are made of tough suede, and are built to last. Perfect for pruning or hauling branches, these gloves will keep you scratch free. My wrists always get itchy so I love that these cover them.

A bucket caddy is a great way to keep your tools organized and right by your side. This bucket caddy by Fiskars is perfect for keeping your tools safe and at your fingertips. Plus, it only costs around $11 which is a great price!
Make gardening a little more fun and comfortable with a garden seat. A garden seat such as this one will protect your legs, knees, back, and bottom. For around $30, you can own one yourself and have a more comfortable gardening experience.
