When it comes to maintaining your garden, care will be much easier when you are equipped with the proper tools for the job! The right pair of gardening gloves and the help of our favorite tools can aid in the comfort and overall efficiency of your gardening experience.
Choosing the correct pair of gloves can make a big difference in your gardening experience. It is important to keep in mind that various styles of gloves have different intended uses. Traditional gardening gloves are made of waterproof material and have rubber coated palms and fingers for flexibility and grip. These gloves are great for general gardening tasks including planting and weeding. When pruning shrubs or handling sharp thorns, you may want a long sleeve puncture proof garden glove. This style glove will keep your hands and forearms safe from thorns & scratches. To prevent blisters when operating equipment or using heavier tools, consider a more durable glove material such as leather.
Weeding is typically one of the most dis-liked tasks when it comes to gardening. Thankfully weeding can be more manageable with the help of the Skidger weeder. Its pointed edges are sharpened on both the inside and the outer edge to allow for pushing and pulling motion, clearing weeds quickly and easily. The Skidger is available in both a hand-held and long handled design based on your specific need. This product is especially helpful in your garden when clearing weeds between rows and individual plants. The Skidger is a must-have tool for keeping your garden and flowerbeds free from weeds!

Harvest baskets are also extremely helpful when your garden starts yielding tasty produce. They allow you to maximize your trip to the garden and effectively transport the harvest.

If looking to use something around the house, a bucket or crate can be an effective alternative.
