A shovel is used for many jobs. It can also be used to move or remove dirt but its main purpose in my garden is to dig holes. We recommend you invest in a high-quality shovel. You need both kinds- a spade and a flat head shovel.
If you are working with trees and plants, it is essential that you buy the right shears. Make sure that you buy a high-quality model even though it means you will have to pay extra. You should accept the extra cost and get the best.
You will find three different types, long blade to trim hedges, lopping shears designed to cut larger branches, and small hand shears made to snip and trim small branches and shoots. Shear blades should be kept clean and very sharp and be lubricated with light oil.
