The Top 10 Garden Tools You Need for Summer 2016

With spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start thinking about the outdoors and getting your garden into shape. It’s easy to put the outside of our houses to the back of our mind, especially during winter when the weather isn’t on our side. However, it won’t be long until the sun is out and you’re sat in your garden wishing you’d have sorted things out sooner! Read our list of the top 10 garden tools you won’t regret getting your hands on:

  1. Hedge Shear

It’s a staple piece of equipment for any gardener from novice to expert. A simple, easy to use tool that shifts your garden from messy to neat in no time at all!


  1. Lawnmower

An easy and obvious purchase to make – a lawn mower is a great buy for anyone wanting their garden to look effortlessly clean. Keeping up to it can be a pain, but it definitely gives off a well-kept impression.


  1. Grass Trimmer

Differing from a lawn mower slightly, a grass trimmer will allow you to trim and shape the edges of your lawn making your garden look the part against your neighbours.


  1. Watering Can

It sounds like such an obvious garden essential, but making sure you have a watering can is key to keeping up with your gardening this summer – especially during warm and dry weather.


  1. Wheelbarrow / Garden Cart

Okay, so maybe not a tool as such, but this will definitely help save you time. Forget trailing back and forth carrying large and heavy loads of soil – just throw everything in and get started on the gardening!

  1. Gloves

Again – maybe not a tool, but you’ll certainly thank us for reminding you to buy a pair. A must have for anyone whether you plan on spending 10 minutes or 4 hours in the garden!

  1. Lawn & Leaf Rake

Sweeping your front lawn or driveway requires very little effort but the effect it can have on your garden as a whole can be much bigger. With guests arriving to your house tricked into thinking you’re more organised than you really are.

  1. Circular Saw

Not only are these perfect for the garden, but also for that shed you’ve planned on fixing up for years! SGS have a huge range of lightweight and portable options – great additions to any tool set.

  1. Digging Spade

A good digging spade is always needed. With so many on the market, you won’t struggle at picking up a good one, and if you’re keen to get your garden into shape – you’ll definitely need one!

  1. Hand Trowel

Last but not least – probably one of the most basic tools in any gardener’s collection – the hand trowel. Multi-functional and the perfect tool to ease you into a little Sunday afternoon gardening!
