Weeding tools

Green (Living) Review

The fingers may be able to do some of the work there are definitely times, and I know that for certain, when weeding tools are called for. To a degree, as with many gardening tools, it is a case of horses for courses but, as far as I am concerned, the best tool for hand weeding plant beds of any kind is a wire weeder, sold under the name of Wonder Weeder, but which can be made by easy DIY, or substituted with a hoof pick.

Garden tool care

Green (Living) Review

Regular cleaning and sharpening of any cutting tools, and that includes hoes and spades, should be routine anyway and tools should be cleaned – if possible – at the end of the “working day”. In order for your tools to be in top condition and to last for a very long time a little tender loving care, aka TLC, - or a bit more than just a little – will go an awful long way. Wooden garden tools: There are few wooden tools in the garden – sadly – today.

Garden tool maintenance

Green (Living) Review

But now it just the right time to give your tools some TLC, some tender loving care. Then resharpen the edges of the tools that have edges and need them, the same goes for your hand digging trowels and other hand tools, forks, hoes, etc. Sharpening of the tools, mentioned above, is done gently with a flat file. You do not want a knife edge on them, in other words while they are tools to cut they are meant to cut soil and a knife edge would be too thin.
