It’s indispensable to use the right tool for digging, weeding, and planting in your garden. Whether you’re an experienced gardener or new to getting your fingers green, simply using the best tool can make garden maintenance a lot easier.
But with so many to choose from, it can be confusing to find the right garden hand tool for your outdoor job. That’s where we can help. Here’s our guide to help you search for the perfect garden hand tools for digging, weeding, and planting to make gardening easy, straight forward and enjoyable.
What Gardening Fobs are you Doing?
Have a think about what jobs you’ll be tackling in the garden – this will help you selected the most suitable tools. For example, are you picking through already loosened soil to remove weeds? Or are you digging very compacted soil that has had very little work done on it?
Whether you’re creating new beds and borders, you’ll need to stock up on tools that not only help you establish the area but also help you dig through the soil.
It is also important to envisage the type of soil you have in your garden. Whether you have heavy soil that is difficult to break up you’ll need heavy-duty tools to make the job easier, compared to lighter tools where your soil type is less.

Garden spades are the key tool for any gardener. There are three types of garden spades: digging spades, drain spades, and border spaces.
**Digging Spades** These tools are designed for digging holes in the soil, inclination over the soil to prepare the ground for larger plants, shrubs, and trees
**Drain Spades** These are much longer and slimmer than a digging spade, which makes them ideal for digging neat and narrow channels for drainage pipes and cables.
**Border Spades** This type has a narrower head, which makes it perfect for working in confined spaces, such as beds and borders.
Our grubber is also available in a variety of various elements and finishes to suit the type of task you are doing from heavy digging jobs to smaller sowing jobs.
Target problem weeds with a tool specially planned to remove them. There are many different weeders. We offer:
**Push/Pull Weeders** These work in a forward and backward motion and are best suited to weeds growing in the top layer of soil in pots or beds.
