Gardening is easy when you have the right tools.
Its often said that with the proper tools, any job can be done right. The same is true with gardening. Of all the tools you need for gardening, there are two basic types: cultivating tools and planting tools. The first group of tools have several names that all have to do with digging, raking, hoeing, and shoveling. These include a digging fork and a five-tined cultivator. The other group includes a spade and a dibble or pointed planting tool. Visit the plant care shed to find the tools you need and more!
