As we’re now in spring and looking ahead to even warmer summer weather to come, it makes sense that people will be outside more and probably tending to their garden as well.

But managing a reasonably sized garden can be relatively labour intensive—so, if you often find yourself in need of a tool for a trim, planting or uprooting, these gardening tools will be just what you’re looking for.
