Great Garden Gadgets

Updated on May 22, 2015

Tools Make Gardening Easier

Gadgets, where would any gardener be without their favourite gadget or tool? It does not matter what you grow or where you grow it, most gardeners have at least one tool that they hold dear and could not begin to garden without it.

Whether it be a pair of well worn gardening gloves, a favourite pair of shoes that are worn only in the garden or a spade that you can live without, it does not matter.

For me, for many years a pocket knife was m favourite garden tools. Now, I suspect as I was collecting pocket knives then, this was more a rationalization than a reality.

Now that I am a few years older than I was when I dug my first garden, I look for tools that make the work easier.

Long handled tools that enable me to stand up and do the work rather than bending over or kneeling down are ideal. I can still do the chores, such as bulb planting, I do love both spring and fall bulbs, are possible without causing me any problems.

As baby boomers continue to rise in numbers, garden gadgets that make it easier for them to either, take up or continue to garden, will find a ready market.

Another handy garden gadget is the garden tool cart. The garden tool cart allows you to take your tools with you easily as you move around the garden and also acts as a storage unit when you put them back into the garden shed or garage.

If you just have to get down and weed, then a kneeling stool will make it easier for you to do that. The kneeling stool gives you a comfortable pad to kneel on; is raised a off the ground and has sturdy support which you can sue to help yourself up and down. You can obtain a garden tool pouch to put over one of the supports so that your favourite garden tools are handy and within easy reach.

Anyone who wants to can garden. The garden gadgets that I have mentioned in this hub are designed to increase the gardener’s ability to participate in one of the most healthy and enjoyable outdoor activities that can also beautify your home; provide food for you family and increase your property value.

There are also long handled shovels; easy to use lawn mowers, and tools designed with special grips that are simpler to hold and use. Just like the garden glows when you put the right plant in the right palce; the gardener grows when the right tool is selected. Happy gardening.

    Great post, I have been looking into homesteading and the call of home grown food is strongly calling me to it. Not to mention that we don't even know how to pronounce most of the food we eat these days.

    I like the way the tool cart you have highlighted looks like it would double as storage in the garage or shed. Good find.

    Thanks for the information. I will be getting my area ready soon, as soon as the ground dries a little from all the rain, so I can get my organic garden going. Nothing like fresh veggies right from your own garden.....
