  1. Spade or spading fork.
  2. Hoe for conditioning soil and weeding.
  3. Rake to prepare a fine seedbed and keep things neat.
  4. A watering can or a garden hose with sprinkler
  5. A hand trowel.
    And, if you have a lawn, too, you'll also need:
  6. A lawn mower
  7. Trimming shears or an edger.
  8. A Plant Food Spreader for feeding and seeding
  9. An Sidespray or other sprayer for lawn weed and crab grass control


  1. Good quality tools kept clean and sharp make gardening more fun.
  2. There is no economy in cheap seed or inferior plants
  3. Simplified feeding-all-purpose garden protection and weed killing sprays save time and effort for the more pleasant gardening activities.
