There are some best garden tools. There is nothing I love more than to spend the day in the garden, no phones, no work, just digging in the dirt and tending to my plants.

And that is just what I have planned this weekend.

Over the years I have created a system and have my few favorite items that help to make gardening easy and enjoyable. It is important to have everything you need right at your fingertips.

I have a great big TubTrug which is a flexible bucket and I put my tools and stool in this bucket to head to the garden. This bucket is the perfect size to collect leaves and trimmings and then empty into a larger trashcan.

Here are my top 10 must-have tools for your garden

  1. Tubtrug bucket – This is the most amazing bucket I have ever had, it is flexible and light weight. I fill it with my trimmings and then empty to a larger trashcan. I also use this bucket to carry everything on this list. I store it this way, so I am always ready to go.

    • A beautiful harvesting basket – My favorite thing to do is harvest the vegetables and pick the flowers, and there is no better way then with this beautiful basket, it is also a beautiful way to showcase your harvest for photos.

    • A kneeling stool – This is truly the most important item for me, as I like to sit to trim my plants.
    • Trowel – An absolute yes for any gardener! A good trowel is worth its weight in gold.

    • Fertilizer 10.10.10– I find this to be the perfect fertilizer for my entire yard, best to feed monthly.
    • Gardening twine – It is a must to have twine and some stakes for those plants that may need to be tied up
    • Weed remover – I find this a must have for those weeds that get stuck in the cracks
