Gardening is a rewarding hobby that can transform your outdoor space into a beautiful oasis. Whether you're a seasoned gardener or just starting out, having the right tools is essential for maintaining your garden and keeping it in tip-top shape. In this blog post, we'll go over some of the must-have garden tools from Wolf Garten you need for successful garden maintenance.
- Garden rake: If you're looking to gently gather leaves and light debris, a plastic leaf rake is a great option. But if you need a rake for tougher jobs, a metal soil or bow rake is the way to go.
- Pruning Shears: Pruning shears are a must-have for maintaining your plants and shrubs. Look for a pair with sharp blades and comfortable handles to avoid hand fatigue. Have a look at Wolf Garten’s Comfort Plus Secateurs to get the job done.
- Garden Hoe: A garden hoe is a versatile tool that can be used for weeding, breaking up soil, and more. A well-made hoe from a brand like Wolf Garten, such as the Small Double Hoe has a sturdy head and comfortable handle.
- Hand Trowel: A garden trowel is essential for planting bulbs, seedlings, and small plants. This tool will come in handy during the next months when it’s due time to start planting summer-flowering bulbs!
Fernhill’s Favourite Tool
One of the most versatile hand tools in our range of Wolf Garten tools is the Wolf Garden Scraper. A Garden Scraper is a versatile and useful tool for any gardener. Whether you're working on a large garden or a small container garden, a Garden Scraper can make your life easier. You can use a scraper for chores such as:
- Weeding: A Garden Scraper is an excellent tool for removing weeds from your garden. The sharp blade easily cuts through the roots, making it easier to remove weeds without damaging your plants.
- Preparing Soil: Before planting, it's important to prepare the soil by removing any rocks, sticks, or other debris. A Garden Scraper is a great tool for this task, as it allows you to quickly and easily clear an area of unwanted material.
- Planting: A Garden Scraper is also a great tool for planting. The flat blade can be used to create a planting trench, and the sharp edge can be used to loosen soil around the roots of your plants, making it easier to get them in the ground.
- Edging: Use the sharp edge of your Garden Scraper to create a clean, straight line when edging your garden. This will give your garden a neat, professional look.
- Clearing Debris: After a storm or a big wind, your garden may be littered with sticks, leaves, and other debris. A Garden Scraper can be used to quickly and easily clear this debris, keeping your garden looking neat and tidy.
