Knowing the Tools You May Use in Gardening

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Gardening is a good way of spending your leisure hours. It is a hobby that many people enjoy and feel some sense of fulfillment. But plants do not just grow in your garden. There are certain things that need to be done such as tilling the soil, uprooting the weeds, and so on. And, getting these things done may require tools.

So what are these gardening tools that we are talking about? Let us take a look at some of them.

Cultivator

A cultivator is especially useful when you have just set out to till an untouched lot. It helps in cutting the hard compacted soil and it is very useful in the preparation of flowerbeds and vegetable plots.

Edger

It is a tool that can help you maintain your flower gardens and help the shrubs maintain their shape. What usually happens is that over time these gardens lose their crisp lines when grass grows. By using an edger, the grass roots taking a strong hold in planting beds will be prevented.

Hoe

Because it can penetrate easier into the soil, a hoe is used for cultivating and weeding the soil. This will allow nutrients and water to penetrate easier into the soil.
