When it comes to garden tools, poor quality tools will only break, so it’s worth your while spending that little bit more getting something that will (hopefully) last a long time. Here are are top picks of the must have garden accessories to buy for autumn:
* Garden spades and shovels – when it comes to working with soil, garden spades and shovels with round edges are perfect for digging holes when planting trees and shrubs. It is recommended that you purchase garden spades or shovels with rounded edges as these are good quality and will last a lifetime.
* Hand trowels – if you’re going to be planting bulbs and bedding plants you should use a hand trowel. By far the best hand trowels are solid, stainless steel ones.
* Knee pads – when you are out in the garden, a large majority of your time in the garden will be spent on your knees, so it is recommended that you purchase a comfortable cushion pad for you to kneel on.
* Gardening gloves – if you are doing non-messy work in your garden, go for cotton gloves. For messy work especially on wet days when it is muddy, purchase a pair of rubberised gloves.
* Garden rakes – there are a number of different garden rakes available for a variety of gardening tasks. For example, in order to level soil and remove small stones, it is recommended that you use a stiff tined soil rake. Some rakes may even allow you to adjust the fan in order to rake large areas and narrow areas, in particular in between plants and shrubs.
