Buying The Right Tools


In every home, a gardening tool is a must because of the fact that plants are very essential to us humans and will always be part of our lives. That is also the main reason why we love planting any types of plants at home even if we do not have enough space to plant on. Pots and planters are made for many purposes and provides many benefits for gardeners, landscapers and for everyone who loves to plant not only at home but as well as to any business establishments. There are also tools needed to be able to start a small garden at either our backyards or front yards. A beginner's kit should include a garden fork, spade, rake, trowel, a hand fork and a watering can. When you find yourself doing a particular task frequently, such as weeding or digging the vegetable patch, make sure to add tools or equipment as your interest grows. Invest in tools of good quality that will help make your job easier and more pleasurable. 

A garden fork is perfect for digging soil that is stodgy. A spade is your basic digging equipment while a rake is for final soil leveling or for raking leaves off the lawn and gravel paths. A trowel is perfect for weeding, tinkering with pots on the patio and planting on small pots too. Because of it's sharp tines, a hand fork is easy to stab into any soil, thus, making it great for planting , transplanting, aerating, and mixing additives into the soil. Last but not the least is the watering can, they are use for the purpose of watering the plants and applying liquid fertilizers. If you have lot's of plants to water you could either get a hosepipe or an oasis self watering kit which is only offered at Emily's Plants, where you can find a variety of house plants, seed kits and gardening supplies too.

An Oasis Self Watering Kit has 4 independent watering programs, you could either choose 10, 20, 30 or 40 days that can be selected by just simply turning the dial to water a maximum of 20 plants. These oasis are very useful especially if you will be away from home for several months. That is to make sure your plants will not wither and die because of no water. Gardening is always fun and you will never feel burdened if you have the right tools and equipments at home, so make sure to buy the perfect tools to fit your needs.
