Digging Tools - You use a shovel mainly for digging, but some have other specialized uses, including making deep, narrow holes; edging; moving stuff around, and trenching. The shovel is the mainstay and workhorse of the garden shed. Round-Point Shovel - Rounded shovels usually have a beveled edge to help penetrate tough soil situations. They may also have a point to push into soil. The edges are curved to facilitate scooping. Handles are the height at which most people stand and can be ergonomically angled. Grips are often cushioned to prevent blisters. This is the workhorse of the garden, found in virtually every tool shed. It has a rounded blade with a point that permits easier ground penetration. The blade is slightly hollowed, allowing you to scoop dirt, mulch and more, and move it around.
Tree Pruners - Pole pruners solve that “I’ll get the ladder out and prune those trees…just not today” problem. Most extend out to 18 or so, letting you lighten up those lower tree limbs, and most of the people I talk to with “problem shade” only need to lighten up the bottom 20 or so of their treescape to be able to garden to their hearts content really! So if you have ANY trees, this is a must-have tool. But what if we have to cut something larger than our thumb?
Shovels - A shovel is an essential tool for gardening. They come in different sizes, shapes and a variety of forms. Shovels are made from metal with some having wooden or plastic handles. A shovel is used for scooping, digging and shoveling of soil or dirt. The shovel is important in any garden setup, it helps you save strength on otherwise difficult task of digging.
