What are basic garden tools?
Every gardener needs certain garden tools to help them with their outdoor tasks. To keep an overview and avoid buying too many unnecessary items, Fernhill suggests investing in a few high-quality basics that will last you a long time. Some of these essential basic garden tools include:
Gloves. They’ll keep your hands clean and away from splinters, thorns and nastily stinging plants and insects.
Hand trowels. These smaller tools are perfect for digging out weeds and planting or displacing new greenery.
Rakes. They’re an important addition to your collection, since they’re necessary to keep your garden tidy and free of loose leaves.
Hoes. The hoe is a commonly used garden tool to prepare flower beds and cut down weeds.
Can garden tools be stored outside?
While some garden tools can be left outside for eternity without ever getting damaged, the most common recommendation is to safely store them away. If you’re wondering why this is, take a look at the main reasons not to leave your garden tools out after use:
Most quality gardening tools are made of metal and/or wood. This means rain and soil can wreak havoc on them and leave them in a way worse state. If they’ve got paint on them that can start peeling off, there’s even more reason to give them a proper place in your shed.
Smaller garden tools can easily get lost. Hand trowels, gloves and watering cans shouldn’t be left out for this reason. On top of that, pricier garden tools can also get stolen.
Safety is the final reason not to leave your garden tools out and about. Everyone knows the funny cartoons of people standing on rakes with the handles swinging right in their faces as a result. However, this also happens in real life and trust us- it hurts. Garden tools with long handles and/or pointy metal spikes have no business being outside longer than necessary.
