Garden Tools

Power Tools 

Make sure you inspect the plugs of your power tools for damage both inside and out. As well as this, check the wires and cables for cuts and wear to make sure there are in good order and safe to use. A common household solution is to cover any exposed wire with thick tape; however any damage really should be repaired professionally. Tools with metal surfaces should be sprayed with a light coating of general-purpose oil, which would prevent them from rusting. Turning on the tool after oiling makes sure the oil works its way into all areas.

Lawnmowers 

Once you’ve finished using your lawnmower, make sure you unplug it before starting and cleaning. Be sure to remove any grass and soil from the rollers, blades and grass boxes. A simple stiff brush such as the Wooden Hand Pot Brush 10" will help you clear up any leftover debris which could clog your mower. If the blades of your mower are chipped or blunt, you should have them sharpened and balanced by a servicer. Very badly worn blades will need replacing. The height adjusters should be greased every so often to prevent them from seizing up. 

Spades and Forks

Both spades and forks are essential garden tools that you’ll need to use regularly. It’s important to get the right size, so you are comfortable when using it. Choosing the right shaft length will help prevent unnecessary tiredness and aching muscles. Depending on the kind of digging you’ll be doing, you’ll have to choose an appropriate head with for the tool. For a larger area such as a vegetable plot, a spade or fork with a wider head would help you finish the job much quicker. However wider headed tools tend to be much heavier and cumbersome, so a smaller head may be a better choice if you have difficulty bending or lifting. Check the handles are big enough for you to grip comfortably when wearing gloves. 

A small hand fork such as the Wolf Garten Flower Fork or the Spear & Jackson Elements Traditional Hand/Weed fork are ideal for weeding around plants and in pots as well. Trowels such as the Spear & Jackson Elements Traditional Hand Trowel with a wider blade are useful for planting up pots. 

A planter such as the Spear & Jackson Bulb Planter Stainless Steel is useful because it removes a plug of soil that you can replace after you’ve planted your bulbs.

Cutting Tools

Cutting tools such as secateurs are ideal for pruning your garden and keeping shrubs under control. Anvil secateurs like the Spear & Jackson Razorsharp Anvil Secateurs work with one sharp blade moving against an anvil bar, or blunt blade. The bar is made of a softer metal so it doesn’t blunt the sharper one. Bypass secateurs like the Spear & Jackson Razorsharp Bypass Secateurs are similar to scissors and have two cutting blades. Secateurs can prune stems which are up to 2cm in diameter. A more appropriate tool to prune thicker branches would be Wolf Garten Multi Change Anvil Loppers.
