Ultimate Gardening Tools
Horticulturist and landscaping expert Hunter Stubbs discusses some of the tools that are necessary for creating the ultimate garden workshop.
To conserve space in the workshop, a traditional wheelbarrow is replaced with a collapsible model. When not in use, this handy accessory can be washed out, folded flat and stored or hung against a wall.
A professional-grade blower is included in our arsenal of yard tools. This advanced model has a gas-powered motor that straps on the back of the user like a backpack.
Gas-powered hedge-trimmers and a small chainsaw are also included.
A lightweight tiller is extremely useful for establishing flower and vegetable gardens and adding amendments to the soil. The small gas-powered motor is extremely lightweight and easy to operate. It comes with interchangeable implements so that this tool can serve other uses such as aerating or de-thatching a lawn.
A collapsible garden bag is ideal for collecting leaves, yard debris or grass clippings. When not in use, it folds up for easy storage and can be hung on a wall.
A lawn spreader is essential for establishing and maintaining a lawn. The spreader can be used to evenly disperse lawn seed, fertilizer or lime.
The all-metal construction of the sprinkler head on this high-end sprinkler ensures that this lawn accessory will hold up well and operate for a long time.
A garden cart is a workhorse of a garden accessory. Easier to roll and control than an ordinary wheelbarrow, this cart is ideal for moving large potted plants, bags of soil, garden rocks and more.
A pole pruner has a pruning device and a saw-blade attached to a long handle. This tool can be used to safely prune high limbs without having to get onto a ladder.
Specially designed "slat-walls" have slots so that tool-hangers, shelves and cabinets can easily be hung on the walls and repositioned with ease. For safety, make sure that tools with sharp edges or points — such as hoes or pitchforks — hang facing the wall.
There's plenty of counter space for use as a work surface, and storage both above and below the work surface.
The shop is equipped with a stainless-steel sink to aid with potting and cleanup. A customized potting station is positioned in close proximity to both the sink and the greenhouse entrance.
