The Tools Every Handyman Should Have at Home
Clearing Garden Tools –
Digging Shovel –
When it is time for cutting branches with sizes similar to that of your finger – or perhaps bigger – it is time to bring some of the best garden clippers. It is none other than the lopper. Unlike pruners and other garden shears, this one right comes with larger blades and, thus, more leverage. It gives you the much-needed cutting power, which is a must-have for a handyman like you!
Pruning Saw –
It is about time to have an all-purpose saw in all of your garden works, and nothing beats the like of a quality pruning saw. Mind you, the market these days offers pruning saws that are foldable. As such, they can easily be transported and stored in your favorite garden tool storage.
Although the rake is usually taken out during spring, it still serves many purposes. For instance, you can use it to break up the soil before digging. The rake can also be used level mulch or soil before you start seeding a lawn.
Digging Fork –
Often called a garden fork, this one is perfect when you are trying to loosen a very compacted soil. Also, it can be used in introducing compost and dividing the number of perennials. As much as possible, go for a digging fork with a d-handle. Doing so will give you an easier handling power when using the tool in tighter spaces.
Hose and Sprayer-
If you do not own a wheelbarrow, then you are making a huge mistake. This one simply makes all gardening tasks a little much easier. Apart from carrying compost and firewood, it is also perfect for transporting soil and other stuff. In fact, you can use it to transport garden hand tools and/or garden accessories back to the garden tool storage.
