Springtime is a exciting time of the year – the winter frost is melting away, and with it comes new life and the opportunity to start your garden again. It’s the best time of the year, because it’s the time of the year when you have an excuse to buy all of the awesome new gardening tools that you’ve been wanting. Being able to restock your tool shed is a beautiful thing, and with all of the new tools that have come out over the winter, it’s difficult to even know where to start.
Luckily, we have put together a list of some gardening tools that we think you can’t live without this spring. Whether you are looking to replace the trusty tool that you have been using for years, or try some fancy new gardening gadget, here are some tools that you need for your garden this spring.
Washable Leather Gloves
Leather gloves come in handy in all types of yard work and gardening situations and investing in a great pair of them will carry you through many years of gardening work. However, the problem with typical leather gloves arises when you consider that most leather can’t get wet enough to wash them. This is a problem especially when you are using them in a capacity such as yard work and gardening.
The good news is that technology now allows us to buy leather gloves that are washable! This is an amazing step for work gloves, because it means that they will last even longer, thus being an even better investment piece. They are breathable like synthetic gloves, durable like leather gloves, and can be thrown right into the washing machine!
A Very Durable Hose
If you live in an especially hot or sunny climate, then you know the true pain of having to replace your hose pretty much every year, like clockwork. This year, when you buy a new hose, buy a hose that is going to last you for longer than just the summer. Wear and tear on a typical garden hose causing it is dry, crack, and eventually spring leaks that make it pretty much unusable. Not to mention possible factors such as kids and dogs that might also do a number on your hose.
Instead of buying your typical green garden hose, invest in a more durable one that will last you longer than a few months, no matter the amount of wear and tear. These days there are hoses on the market that can stay flexible in up 165 degrees Fahrenheit and as low as negative 40 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that you can leave your hose out year-round and it will not dry out or crack! The crack resistant material is also less likely to incur tears from factors such as kids and pets.
A Portable Generator
If you have a big yard or are just looking for a way to keep your electric bill a little bit lower, this spring while you are gardening, then you need to look into getting a portable generator. A portable generator will allow you to power tools way out in your yard without using extension cords. It makes yard work and gardening that much easier because you can move it around as you move, and you aren’t constantly getting tangled up in cords.
There are a lot of different portable generators on the market, each one built to suit a person’s needs differently. This means that you can shop around for one that best suits you and your gardening style. For a starting place, look at this list of the best portable generator options.
