It's time to start thinking about fall gardening! Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned gardener, check out these handy must-have garden tools that will make garden chores easier, safer and more comfortable.
If you're a gardening newbie, it can feel overwhelming figuring out where to start. Which tools do you need? Which can you skip? This handy kit is an excellent option for gardening beginners. There are eight tools as well as a convenient carrying bag.
If you don't want to spring for a whole kit of tools, there are a few inexpensive ones you'll reach for over and over again like this soil scoop. Not only does it work as a small shovel and trowel for weeding and transplanting, but the serrated sides allow you to saw through stubborn stems and roots, too.
For tackling a lot of weeding, the least fun but necessary chore of gardening, you'll want this tool that makes it easier. Constructed of an ash wood handle and rust-resistant stainless steel, this hand weeder makes it easy to get weeds on the first try thanks to the v-shaped fork tip and curved base that allows for better leverage.
Bamboo gardening gloves are a thing now. These gardening gloves are breathable, and they'll keep your hands warm in the cold seasons and cool in the warm seasons. They have bare-hand sensitivity (no need to take them on and off), and they even work with your phone's touchscreen.
For when you don't want to mess with a separate tool, let your gloves be your tool. Durable and puncture-resistant to protect your hands, these gloves prevent cuts and blisters and offer flexible, ergonomic design for handling small objects. This pack of four comes with two sets of gloves with claws and two sets without.
Gloves? Check. Hat? Check. Now you need a stylish yet functional gardening apron like this one. With plenty of pockets, you can store all the tools you need, as well as your phone. There's a cross-back strap design to prevent back pain for gardeners of all ages.
Your knees will quickly let you know that becoming a gardening aficionado is no joke. There's no way to avoid spending time on the ground when you're tending to your garden, but you may as well be comfortable while you do it. This foldable, padded stool works as both a kneeler and a seat and will quickly become one of your most-loved gardening necessities.
If you're prepping your fall garden in late summer, the bugs and mosquitos are probably out in full force. Skip the messy insect repellent spray or creams that are loaded with harsh ingredients. These DEET-free wristbands are made with all-natural essential oils and ingredients and are waterproof.
Toiling around in the garden requires the proper shoes. Sloggers' garden shoes, made from 100-percent recyclable material, feature an exclusive all-day comfort insole and a heavy-duty lug tread for excellent traction in a variety of conditions. The best part? They can be hosed off or wiped clean with a wet cloth.
This seed-growing kit is a fun take on all the standard veggies you might see in your produce section but with a twist: purple carrots, blue corn, yellow and rainbow chard, and broccoli. Taste the rainbow while you're eating your veggies.
If you're just getting into gardening, you might not want to spend too much money on all the gadgets available, which is why we love this collapsible hanging rack. You can use it to dry out your freshly-grown herbs and veggies to use for cooking or making teas. It's available in two-, four- and six-tier options.
