Essential implements for gardeners at any level of expertise, the variety of gardening hand tools available on the market nowadays is vast and this makes it very difficult to always choose the best tool for your needs. It is possible to buy anything from a bulb planter to a moss scraper, a double-sided hoe to a humble trowel. The designs vary as much as the tools themselves, from the simple wooden handled style we are all familiar with to modern ergonomic creations that allow the tool to be held in the best possible position to avoid stress related injuries.

It is also worthwhile to make sure you are selecting the right tool for a particular task; you will find that the end result of your efforts will be more satisfactory if you use the correct tools.
