You don't have to spend a fortune on gardening tools to have a vibrant, lush, and flourishing garden. The truth is, depending on the type of plants you're growing, you probably only need a few staples you can count on to do the job.
Pruning is an essential task to maintain a healthy appearance and, ultimately, the growth of your plants. Investing in high-quality gardening hand tools for your garden is going to save you time and money instead of buying low-grade pruners that are often times insanely cheap and would last you days, or probably weeks, if you're lucky.
But don't worry, it doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg to get excellent quality garden shears that do the job. The key is to get the staples and find the right balance between cost and quality.
So, what are these so-called staples? This comprehensive guide covers the top three most important garden tools you should keep in your garage. We'll also show you what to look for when choosing the best ones available on the market.
Pruners are must-have garden shears for every avid and professional gardener. They are garden scissors that are versatile and can work on a lot of plants. They can be used as bud trimmers or as trimming scissors for cannabis, roses, hydrangeas, evergreens, hibiscus, lavenders, and many more. They cut through tough stems and branches but are designed to be lightweight, and make precise cuts while still allowing you to exert extra strength at every snip without hurting your hands.
You should educate yourself on the three main types of pruning shears and the tool's purpose before deciding which ones to purchase.
Anvil pruning shears are gardening shears that are used to remove deadwood. It has a straight-cutting blade that slices like a knife, making it unsuitable for greenwood because it has the potential to crush a live material.
Ratchet pruning shears are garden clippers ideal if you have limited hand strength. With blades similar to an anvil but with a ratcheting mechanism, It's a pruner that cuts in stages to make cutting through larger branches easier.
Bypass pruning shears are garden scissors with curved blades bypassing one another and cut like a pair of scissors but sturdier! This type may be the best pruning shear for gardening due to its versatility. They are the best for greenwood and ideal for both beginner and experienced gardeners.
If you've ever wondered how these rectangular-shaped hedges and beautifully-thinned shrubs are created, hedge shears are responsible for that. This gardening hand tool has long, straight blades that look like giant scissors and are ideal for cutting softer stems.
Not only are hedges and bushes suitable for using hedge clippers. They are also efficient tree trimmers because they remove branches and stems with a diameter of 1/4 inches or less. As a result, they can be used for a variety of tasks, including trimming bushes, deadheading, trimming lawn edges, pruning branches after they have flowered, and cutting thin trimmings.
Now not all plants are created equal. Some are high up with thicker branches. These tree trimmers can cut tougher branches while also giving you extended reach.
Because they have long handles, you can use this tree pruner to trim hard-to-reach areas such as twigs, smaller branches, out-of-reach parts of a tree, or even overgrown shrubs and bushes.
So, if you're a beginner or even an experienced gardener who is overwhelmed by the number of fancy gardening tools that others tell you about or that you see online, always start with the basics. They do the job and will undoubtedly last you a long time.
