Ask The Experts: 5 Favorite Gardening Tools

Post image for Ask The Experts: 5 Favorite Gardening ToolsTo me, there’s no feeling more relaxing than being submerged in a lush garden on a beautiful day, totally surrounded by the sweet sights, smells, and sounds of nature. I’ve always been interested in gardening, but I’ve just never had any idea where to start. I realize that I can’t be the only one experiencing this little dilemma, so I went to our good friends at for a bit of advice. Today, Chris — one of Terrain’s garden tool experts – is sharing with us his five favorite garden tools. Gardening newbies, listen up!

This gorgeous trowel is handmade in Holland by a family company that’s been around for 100 years! Its hand-sharpened blade is perfect for slicing through roots. Chris’s favorite part about it: “It’s so feminine and beautiful to simply leave laying out around the garden shed and in your garden. Aesthetically this is a BEAUTIFUL piece.

This is made by the same family company as the Tulip Trowel, so it too is handmade in Holland. Here’s why Chris loves it: “You NEVER see a hand cultivator with 5 tines — they usually have only 3. This REALLY turns up dirt with less effort and really aerates the earth fantastically. I love this thing… and own one myself. It’s a totally unique design!”

One of Chris’s favorite parts about these pruners: the steel. “It’s high-carbon-chrome plated. No one does steel Like the Japanese — it’s the reason all chefs seek out Japanese knives. The high carbon count makes the steel harder than any other steel which in turn makes for a sharper cutting edge. Harder steel also means they stay sharper longer. The chrome plating then makes this all very rust resistant.”

Aside from the steel, the beautiful color makes these pruners easy to find in the garden! They’re also lightweight and smaller in size, making them perfect for those of us with little hands. Lastly, the blade has a natural curve, which keeps these babies in place while getting the job done.

No April Showers? Buy May Flowers!

I sold the soul of my garden this spring.
There’s a new Home Depot on the corner and they’re having a huge sale on garden plants, tools and furniture.
My son came by. I have custody this weekend. We decided to journey down to the Depot and buy seedlings to supplement the ones we started inside from seed with Miracle Grow soil in egg cartons.
Just as my luck would have it, and my son’s, all the regular shopping carts were claimed. Christopher and I had to settle for the huge one, designed like a race car. Christopher just loved the fact that I had to push him around like a child in a shopping cart
