By Michelle L Published 10/30/2009 | Gardening

If you are planning to start a home garden, you will need to certain tools for gardening. The equipments that you will need will depend on how big your garden is. Believe it or not, a garden is not complete without these tools. With these equipments, it will be possible for you to maintain your home garden well. Those of you who are only interested in having a garden that will look good will simply need some basic tools like a lawnmower, shears, a hoe, a garden fork and a spade. These are the tools that will help you maintain and have a good looking and tidy garden.

On the other hand, if you are someone who simply love the hobby of gardening then you will find that there are many other tools available in the market that you can get. These tools will allow you to have a wonderful looking garden at home and the work will not be highly labor intensive. There are many gardening tools that are sold in the market and while all of them have their uses, not all of these tools are necessary for all the gardens.  If you are a serious gardener then maybe you should consider getting a powered hedge trimmer. The hedges and large shrubs in the garden will need trimmings from time to time and there is no better way to do this other than by using a powered hedge trimmer. It will make the work simple and quick. Instead of clipping the plants with garden shears, you can easily trim the shrubs and hedges in any shape that you want by using this equipment.

A hose pipe is one other tool that you will find to be of great use if you are in to gardening. One thing you should know about this equipment is that it does not save labor until and unless you fit it with a sprinkler. You will simply have to turn the water on and then the plants in your garden will be watered automatically and you can go and do other things. If you have a garden with a lawn then you will need a good lawn mower. The kind of lawn mower you buy will depend on three things: the amount of money that you are ready to spend, the ease of use of the equipment and the size of the lawn. If you would like some tools that will help you in digging, trimming and mulching then you will need tools like kneeling pad, trowel, garden fork, gardening gloves, shears and hoe.
