Five garden tools every home garden should have

Shovel If you have flower border or space for produce to grow or are looking to create these growing spaces, a shovel is essential. If you are looking for just one, multipurpose tool, then I would consider purchasing a steel square shovel.

Rake

Rakes are not only a useful tool for clearing those leaves from the garden – they are also exceptionally useful for planting.
Raking soil will help break it down to get it ready for planting and the edge of the rake can be used as a hoe to create seed drills, and then cover planted seeds

Trowel

This is one of the simplest tools and one of the most invaluable. Need to create a hole to plant in? Done. Need to dig up a small plant or weed? Done. If you want your garden to look well-kept, you won’t be able to get by without a hand trowel.

Garden Knife

It’s one of the best multipurpose gardening tools in the market. It has a thick blade which is slightly curved, making it great for digging and scooping (particularly useful for getting rid of tough weeds), a pointed end that can easily penetrate densely packed and hard soil, and a serrated edge that is perfect for pruning and cutting through anything up to a small tree branch.

Lawn Mower

If you’ve got a lawn in your garden, you’re going to need something to keep it under control. If you’ve got a grassy area under half an acre, to simply get an electric push mower – while you’ll most likely have to feed the cord through a house window, electric mowers are lighter, cleaner and require a lot less maintenance than petrol fuelled mowers.
