My Top Ten Tools for a Successful Day In The Garden

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 for 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 them into a larger trashcan.

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