Proper Protective Gloves

Couples with green thumbs, listen up. Be sure to make garden gloves a top priority for your wedding registry. Not only will said gloves save your hands from soil and sunspots, but they will serve as your first line of defense against losing the brand-new bling-bling on your left hand. And yes, matching gloves will earn you extra points. BUY IT: Terrain, $30

Sturdy + Stylish Supply Cart

A must for any avid gardener is a strong, sturdy garden cart. Personally, we’re partial to this pretty little number. This cart is just as useful as a traditional wheelbarrow but twice as attractive. The best part? The flat bottom design allows gardeners to transport without the risk of tipping over. BUY IT: Gardener's Supply Company, $299

Tool Tote

Register for a durable garden tool bag to ensure you always have all your must-have garden gadgets within reach. Pro tip: be sure to ask for a tote that has enough room for all your tools, plus SPF, bug spray and a water bottle. BUY IT: Amazon, $38

Handsome Hose

They say your wedding day is the first day of the rest of your life. That’s beautiful and all, but did you know that if you register for this comely copper hose pot, your wedding day is also the last day you’ll ever have to suffer from a messy, knotted garden hose strewn haphazardly in your yard? Corral your forever-unruly hose in your brand-new copper pot and bask in marital bliss. BUY IT: Ballard Designs, $159

Garden Seat

Go ahead and spend your afternoon pruning away, but make sure you’re not killing your back in the process. Make a garden stool or seat a must-add item for your registry. Our tip? Look for a seat that is adjustable and ergonomic for maximum comfort during use. BUY IT: Walmart, $29

Garden Shears

Go big or go home! Ask friends and family to gift a pair of durable gardening shears and you’ll be able to keep up your killer curb appeal year-round. BUY IT: Target, $20

Pretty Pots + Planters

It’s time to stop eyeing that cute terra-cotta set at the improvement store every weekend and add it to your registry, instead. Pretty pots and planters add a polished touch to your garden and, with proper care, will last you for many years to come. BUY IT: Crate & Barrel, $34

Essentials + Storage

Register for quality, durable, gardening tools and replace any worn-out shovels or rakes in your collection. As you’re creating your wish list, try to envision how and where you will store all your new tools. Then go ahead and register for any corresponding storage essentials you need. Guests often bundle a few related items to create one, larger gift. So by adding storage for your shovels to the list, you remove the guest-guesswork. BUY IT: Terrain, $38

Compact Rototiller

If you’ve got a lot of landscaping projects around your house, like refreshing existing flowerbeds or creating new gardens, a small but powerful tiller will save you time and prevent backaches. BUY IT: Amazon, $160

Watering Can

Don’t think twice about adding a nice, durable watering can to your wish list. Simple though it may be, even novice gardeners know the importance of proper H2O! We’re dubbing this the ideal gift because it’s accessible for lower price points and it comes in countless styles and finishes. BUY IT: Williams-Sonoma, $69

Bird + Butterfly House

A quaint butterfly or bird house will up the charm-factor in your new garden by roughly 1,000%. That's a fact, friends. Request a petite palace and enjoy the view of colorful, fluttering wings while breaking a sweat in your flower beds. BUY IT: Gardener's Supply Company, $39
