Gardening is one of the best activity that almost everybody is interested in. However for effective gardening, you need to have quality garden tools to help you grow your favorite plants. Normally we use hand tools in our garden which can be small handled or long handled. There are lot of different things that we do in our garden. For every specific activity, there is a hand garden tool to help you and it also saves you a lot of time.
Here I am going to list some of the best hand garden tools that you must have –
1. Hand Rake
Hand rake is very essential in your garden as it helps you in removing garden trash, debris from under the plants and piles of leaves. Specially you will find the leaves every day in your garden and certainly you don’t want to damage your plants by cleaning them with some big tool. You need a gentle, smaller and a handy tool which can do it easily for you.
Black and Deker steel Fan Rake BD1537 is one of the best hand rakes available in the market. It’s a steel fan rake with soft handle grip. It’s really strong and comes with a 3 year warranty.
Another best thing about this tool is that its powder coated which makes it rust free and also it prevents any kind of soil build up while working in the garden. It’s great for you garden because it can reach places beneath the plants where long rakes can’t go.
2. Pruning Shears
Shears are very important for all kind of pruning tasks in your garden. Shears should be sharp and easy to use. It’s always better to choose a shear which can do every pruning task in your garden.Gripping on the shear also matters.

It’s very sharp and has a unique handle design which makes it perfect for both right handed and left handed people. Fiskars shear cuts very smoothly and it’s stick-free. It can cut branches of size 1 diameter. You need such hand pruning shear to help you out in the garden.
3. Watering Can
Watering the plants is the most essential part. Its even more important when you have lots of flowers and vegetables in your garden. You need a good watering can which can contain a lot of water so that you don’t have to fill it again and again. The handle quality should also be very good so that you can easily pour the water on every plant.
I already wrote a review on Fiskars Easy Pour Watering Can . Fiskars watering can hold 2.6 gallons of water. It has dual handles. One of them is movable so that you can take and bend the can with ease. Water filling hole is made on the side of the can.
4. Gardening Knife
