Here are a few of my favorite hand tools. See Garden Tools 2 for the powered ones!
Garden Weasel : Great inexpensive and stainless steel cultivator. Blades turn counterclockwies of each other.
Fiskars Power Gear Pruner , Hedge
shear , Pruning stick , Anvil Lopper , Pro
ByPass Lopper , Gooseneck lopper and more: The best clippers with ingenious “gears” to give extra leverage. I think you could cut bones with
these -- I’m going to try them in the kitchen next time I make chicken stock.
Kangaroo Bags : Also by Fiskars. This light weight bag colapses to 3” and can be staked down in a high wind!
More Fiskar hand tools: Soft touch Cultivator , Soft
touch trowel , folding saw and micro-snips !
Of course, you must have a shovel , pitch fork , post hole digger, edger , hoe , axe, pick, grub hoe, etc. Make sure you test the feel and insure it’s sturdy enough for the job at hand. I like the
poly handles because they don’t rot!
Carts and Wheelbarrows:
