Essential Tools for Gardening
The following comments concerning the various tools may prove a guide to the buyer,and the most essential tools are therefore described first
- Spade: "when Adam delved and Eve span" no doubt Adam used a spade, and so buried in antiquity is the origin of the first spade that we may well wonder if it differed at all from that in use now.The ordinary D-handled spade,with a stout handle,and stainless blade,is about the best things that can be brought in this line.
- Forks:Forks are made in great variety.The most suitable for general use is a four-pronged digging-fork,
- Hose:The swan-neck,or Canterbury hoe,is the type favored by many gardeners and this is certainly most useful for hoeing on heavy ground and for chopping off stubborn weeds.
- Lawn Mower
- Garden Roller
