Things to look for in garden hand tools
When buying garden hand tools, the first thing you need to work out is what you need exactly. Are you looking for a new trowel to help with planting seeds and bulbs? Do you need a larger spade or a fork for turning over the soil and preparing a larger area?
Rakes, meanwhile, mean you can keep your outdoor space neat and tidy, while secateurs and pruners are necessary to ensure your trees and bushes don't get too overgrown. If you're looking for more than one item, purchasing garden tool sets is a cost-effective option and will provide you with everything you need.
While the quality of the tools is one thing to consider, you should also think about your comfort when gardening. After all, you can often spend a lot of time on your hands and knees or doubled over pots when you're planting or weeding.
Choosing hand tools with extendable handles, for example, can enable you to give your back a rest while still completing all your gardening chores.
If, on the other hand, you need to tidy up a high hedge or large bush, you'll have to find shears with a long reach. Make sure you select a lightweight pair though, otherwise you could find your arms and shoulders hurt and you're unable to finish the job you've started.
Shears with blades made from steel and titanium but attached to light, aluminium handles are perfect, as you won't lose any of your cutting power and don't need to worry about getting tired too quickly.
