Instead of getting down on your hands and knees to ready your soil by hand, let powerful garden tillers do the work for you. Rotary tillers are unsurpassed for breaking new ground, breaking up large soil clumps, digging furrows, and mixing in soil amendments, compost, and cover crops. (But be careful not to over-till because it destroys soil structure.
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?
Garden Cart - Garden carts, with the wide set bicycle wheels, are steady as a rock but don’t dump well and the wide wheel base can be a pain. While I own a traditional model, I have my new favorite, what we in the trade call a mulching monster, sort of a hybrid of the two other designs. The wheelbarrow body (good for dumping) is set on two garden cart type tires set about a foot apart (good for stability).
