Once upon a time, gardening was a tremendous task taking lots of time and energy. But today, it is not so. People's interest in gardening has grown over time, and as a result, several tools have been invented to make gardening more convenient. If you only have a few plants, you can complete all of the duties manually using only a few hand tools. But what about individuals with a passion for gardening, a large number of plants, and a well-kept garden?

Gardening tools can make gardening easier for you, whether you're trimming or pruning, ploughing or weeding. You'll need a selection of robust tools depending on how extensive your garden is.

Important Gardening Tools 

Here is a list of tools important to make your gardening easier. 

1. Trowel

In gardening, the trowel is by far the most significant tool. A trowel is a handheld shovel used for digging, moving soil, mixing potting mix by adding fertilizers to the soil, weeding, and a variety of other duties. It comes in a variety of sizes and shapes, with a wooden, plastic, or steel handle.

2. Weed Puller

Pulling weeds can be the most boring activity, especially if it takes several hours. Even if you're on a limited budget, a manual weed puller can help you get rid of weeds and unwanted grass. Leverage bars are used on some weed pullers to draw the weeds out at an angle.

3. Bow Rake

A bow rake is used to collect and clean loose waste in the garden; it is not the same as a regular leaf rake. The tines are perpendicular to the long, straight handle in this case. It can be used for light tilling, weeding, soil levelling, and mulching.

4. Hoe

A hoe is a gardening tool that is used to weed and nurture the soil. It's also used for planting and constructing shallow ditches. It's an old-fashioned implement that predates the plough. Hoes come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including paddle hoes, collinear hoes, and Warren hoes.

5. Pruning Shears

Pruning shears or hand pruners are the kind of scissors to use on plants. These are used to prune hard branches of trees and shrubs. Pruning shears are also used for harvesting flowers and fruits. 

6. Loppers

Loppers feature long handles and the same blade style as pruning shears. These are the scissors that are used to cut twigs and small branches. One of the most common forms of manual garden cutting tools is loppers.

Apart from these tools, you can use axes, soil testers, hand rakes, hold diggers, and other instruments to make gardening easier.
