Let’s say you’ve finally moved to a home or an apartment with enough outdoor space for a little garden to call your own. What sort of tools will you need to get started? While gardening can be a wonderful hobby, it can quickly turn into a splintery hassle without the right pair of gloves, pruning shears, loppers, garden fork, hand trowel, spade, rake, and hoe.
There are some essential tools that can help you transform your garden into a beautiful outdoor living space. The YellowHouze Team has chosen three remarkable products that are reasonably priced and provide big bang for the buck.
Each product we feature has been independently reviewed and selected by our editorial team and received the Yellowhouze 2019 Garden Award.

A gardener’s essential tool
The Mulch Fork & Spade
The Mulch Fork is a YellowHouze favorite. It is an ergonomically designed, one-arm, multi-tool. We use it for applying mulch and compost. Just as it’s inventor claimed, the interchangeable tool attachments are easy to use and make it the perfect planting tool. We found it to be easy on our backs, wrists, and time compared to traditional shovels and spades. Clean up and storage are also a breeze. It’s compact size enables small space storage and it’s attachments are easy to rinse and wipe down after each use. Our test kit came with the mulch fork and the spade attachment. It’s a choice tool in my garden this year! Check out their YouTube video for more information about getting one.
