When spring rolls around, the garden needs TLC once again. Most people leave the gardens to flake out and die through the winter months, as combinations of frost and low temperatures ward gardeners away and have adverse effects on all the greenery. Still, all that disappears when spring returns, and it becomes time to break out those gardening tools once again.
But which tools will you need? How can you ensure that your garden best recovers from a rocky winter period?
Consequently, here are the best tools for getting your garden ready this spring.
Shovels and Spades
The first items on the list will surprise few people. The classic garden tools will always be needed when work needs doing, and the shovels and spades are certainly up there. These two things (along with hoes if you want to take this job further) will help you to rejuvenate the soil and get your grass back in good shape.
However, because they’ve presumably been locked up for awhile through winter, do check for signs of rust in the metals and splintering in the wooden handles. If you find any, you’ll need to perform some maintenance work here to ensure that your tools are in a useable condition. They’ll be safer to use, and much more efficient in their roles that way!
If you didn’t elect to de-leaf your garden over autumn and winter, then obviously, now’s the time to do it. In all honesty, you probably should have done this as the leaves were falling to minimise the amount of work you’d need to do. If it’s all been left up until now, you probably have a gargantuan task ahead of you. Still, hopes not lost just yet, and it’s all manageable with the right tool.
A quality leaf blower from SGS Engineering is what you’ll need! This robust machine will help you vacate your garden space of leaves in no time and allow you to blast your way into a beautiful green garden clearing. Of course, the leaf blower is a high-end piece of equipment compared to things like shovels, so again, make sure you take good care of it with regular cleanings and store it safely!
Pruners, Tree Trimmers and Sheers
Of course, it’s not only the grassy areas that need attention. If your garden has hedges, weeds and overgrown flowers and trees that need trimming, you’ll then need a set of tools here too. These are namely the pruners, tree trimmers and sheers, and they certainly get these jobs done extremely efficiently.
A healthy garden often means a tidy garden, and these tools will help you meet that end. They’ll enable you to precisely trim down and maintain all aspects of your garden’s foliage, with clean cuts that make a neat garden. After all, you don’t want your garden to be consumed by rogue branches and weeds! Bring some order into your garden this spring and give these tools a go!
