Garden Tool Must Haves

1. Garden Gloves – $12 for a 2-pack

These are my go-to gloves. They have a nice tight fit and grippy hands which make them very easy to work in.

2. Leaf Scoops – $15

These are life changing. Whether its scooping up leaves, or any yard pile, they are absolutely MAGICAL. If I could recommend one fall yard tool, this would be it!

4. Inexpensive Screwdriver – $1-$5

Every gardener needs an inexpensive screwdriver. These make the perfect weeder for those pesky weeds with long tap roots! I love using this to get dandelions out of my lawn.

5. Garden Bucket Organizer + bucket – $20

A great way to organizer and carry around your favorite garden tools whilst working in the yard! I simply picked up a cheap 5 gallon bucket from a home and garden store.

6. Hori Hori Knife or Garden Knife – $20

If I could pick one tool, this would be it! It is a great multi purpose tool and hands down my most used tool! 

7. Bypass Hand Pruners – $20

Any gardener knows, a good pair of pruning shears is very important. These small handle held bypass pruners are small enough to carry around with you whilst you tidy up the yard.

8. Lawn and Leaf Bag – $25

Another one of my all time favorites! The thing I love most about the lawn and leaf bag, is that it collapses to almost flat which makes it very convenient to store when not in use! I also like that it is small enough for me to drag around the yard, especially when I’m cleaning up leaves
