Who’s ready to clean up those yards! Me too! I am just itching to go crazy with the pruning shears. Now I need some time…

Gloves are important and very much a scenario of you get what you pay for. I have various types including the cheapy 3-pack. I tend to leave them everywhere so it’s good to have spares, but for a full day’s work, it’s nice to have well fitting gloves.

Tools for Kids
Yes, it’s a pooper scooper. Once they get tall enough it’s a great garden job for younger children all the way up to teenagers! This set of tools is made of real wood and metal and not the flimsy kind. It’s certainly not sturdy enough for heavy work but it is good enough that kids should be able to use them well and with a little care they will last. Lastly, watering. I don’t know a single child who doesn’t love a watering can (whether or not they actually water plants with it!).
There are always a few more things to make your gardening day a success. A kneeler of some sort is a must have. This one is handy because you can use it as a seat too – plus storage for tools. Huzzah! I love being able to check my light and ph in seconds. That little gizmo is the best. And, sometimes you need a little support and so do your plants. Extra bamboo stakes and that handy garden velcro are awesome. I own and love all of these items!
