If you’ve set about starting your garden, you have probably realized a few tools are necessary to get started. But more than necessary, some tools can make gardening a little easier and more enjoyable. So whether you are looking to plant a large garden or a small one, here are 5 must-haves for your gardening season.

Gloves –A good pair of gloves can make a world of difference in how long or how often you can get into your garden. These gloves are great for gardening – excellent grip, blister protection, and good in the wet and mud.  If those gloves aren’t up to “scratch,” try a pair of clawed gloves – breathable and great for digging.

Garden Kneeler – A garden kneeler is a must-have to save your knees and back. This multi-function version has a foam-padded cushion which can be a seat or a kneeler, has rails to support your arms, and comes with a tool pouch.

Hoe and Cultivator Hand Tool – If you are looking for a tool to help cultivate the soil as well as aid in planting a variety of plants and assist in weeding, a combination hoe-cultivator hand tool is just the thing. 

Hand Weeder – Give your hands a little break with this hand weeder – perfect for ridding your garden of thistles, dandelions, and other pesky weeds – and save your hands at the same time! 

Composter – Looking to become more sustainable? A composter might be your next step. There are plenty of instructions and videos out there for how to build your own composter, but if you aren’t quite ready for that level of DIY, Subpod has an excellent way to start composting.
