Whether your garden is large or small, growing vegetables or flowers, more or fewer trees, the items are still not absent. Let’s find out.


Gloves were most voted in my survey. It is not difficult to understand. According to them, in the garden, there are many thorns or obstacles. Therefore, equipping gloves is extremely necessary for them to avoid injuries.

You must remember to always have at least one pair of gloves in the house to protect your soft hands in tree care and gardening activities. Not just gardening, but general cleaning, arranging furniture, decorating houses or things that need to be used by your hands, you also need to equip them.

Consider the needs and severity of your gardening work before choosing to buy gloves. There are many materials for you to choose, each with its characteristics:

Leather: quite large and not holding hands. However, there are advantages of being durable, tough, and suitable for such things as lifting heavy objects, pushing wheelbarrows and pruning prickly plants.

Cotton: this material is quite cheap, popular, easy to buy. And airy, light, flexible when used. But do not protect you from chemicals. Therefore, you should only use it for light work.

 Disposable gloves: Gloves suitable for handling fertilizers and pesticides.

Rubber: Choose a type of rubber gloves for outdoor use when you garden in wet or cold soil conditions.

Elastic gloves (made of Spandex or Lycra): Fit snugly with the hand. Therefore making the hand operation easier, elastic and they are often waterproof. This type of glove is flexible and is suitable for a variety of purposes such as protecting hands from heat, cold, and moisture.

Pick, shovel and trident

These are the three indispensable tools if you are a hardworking “gardener”. It seems that all three tools have the same function and are all related to soil-related activities. However, you should still have all three. In particular, the hoe is more multifunctional, which can be used to dig, cultivate, mend, mix and move soil. Shovels and tricycles are both used for soil tillage, but provide different tillers for the soil.

Shafts and triples come in a variety of lengths and are made of many materials: Metal is usually stronger and more durable than wood, and can be covered with plastic on the outside.


A rake is a tool used to level the surface of the soil or clean it. Especially in the fall, when the leaves fall a lot, you will need this tool to collect the leaves. If your garden is not too large, and you are not a “genuine farmer”, you should consider using a hand rake that is convenient and compact but still enough to serve the needs of taking care of vegetable beds, some bushes in your little garden.


A peel or a trident is an essential tool in the gardening tools of modern houses. Peel gardeners often have sharp, curved blades to scoop up the soil. It is used to loosen soil, dig holes, especially for planting trees and weeding, mixing fertilizers or other additives.

It is also used to move plants into pots or containers. As for this tool, there is a note, which is also a tip for gardeners. Because the fly is small in size, it is easy to get lost somewhere, you should paint a colorful color on its handle. It makes it easy to find and inspires gardening for you. You should also note that you choose a type with a handle that you feel most comfortable holding. Because you will have to use a lot of force while using it

 Scissors used to prune trees

Make sure to have pruning shears in your basic gardening kit. Especially for bonsai lovers who have to take care and trim them regularly. Plants in adulthood often need to be pruned and cut to the leaf of worms, dead branches do not affect the life of the tree as well as its beauty and beauty. Besides, using scissors is also essential to help you remove the smallest leaves or branches in a hidden corner easily.

Pruning saws

The best pruning saw is an effective tool to cut branches from small to large. This saw has various designs with many colors, sizes or styles for you to choose easily. If your garden is small, you should choose a saw that is small and fits in your hand. And you should choose one that has a fixed and foldable tongue. It is both compact and safe to keep in your home. On the contrary, if you have a large garden to plant trees, you should choose a larger type of pruning saw to cut efficiently and quickly.

Large scissors

Why are so many scissors required for horticulture? Planting trees means much pruning to grow well. Small pruning shears are only suitable for taking care of individual plants. With mass cutting, you need longer and stronger blade scissors. Large scissors are the main tool for those who like to trim and shape a tree. It is also a “champion” tool in mowing the lawn. Or when in your garden planting perennial herbaceous plants, use this pair of scissors to cut down their height extremely effectively.
