Gardening is one of the most therapeutic jobs, even if you are just taking care of your backyard garden. The entire process from sowing seeds to nurturing plants and watching them grow and the bloom is an unexplainable experience. Moreover, not only gardening yourself can help keep your garden presentable and neat, but it can also save you money on hiring expensive gardening companies. Many people with backyard spaces and terraces love to manage their gardens. However, it is important to understand that Gardening is not all about having a hose reel and watering the plants. You need to have the right set of tools to have fruitful and rewarding gardening experience.
Gardening will require you to work a lot with soil and compost, and you will have to use your hands as a tool for the large part of work when handling soil. Handling natural soil means you might come in contact with rocks, stones, nails, pests and insects and other harmful impurities. Gloves will keep your hands protected from coming in contact with anything that might harm you and work with ease and comfort. When choosing your pair of gloves, make sure you pick the right fit and the right material. Having a perfect fit is important to minimize the chances of accidents such as slipping. Make sure the material of your gloves is lightweight, breathable but water resistance. Wash your gloves after every use and store them in a clean safe space away from insects.

Trowels are available in different sizes and materials. It is recommended that you get a stainless-steel trowel with a longer handle for a good grip.
Digging up the soil, removing soil, making holes and plowing the bedding, all require a shovel. Spades are best for perfect shoveling needs. They are available in different sizes and materials but the ones with longer handles give you more convenience. Spades are available in all price brackets but it is recommended that you get a good quality one that will last you longer and will have better work efficiency.
