4 New Handy-Dandy Gadgets for Gardening

Gardening Tools

My boyfriend purchased and moved into his house approximately 5 years ago. He was 21, single, and frankly just did not understand that flowerbeds, bushes and hedges don’t maintain themselves. His home was his bachelor pad, a place of quiet at the end of a hectic day, and the last thing he wanted after working a 13 hour, physically demanding day was to plant flowers, edge the gardens, or trim up the shrubs. So, the gardens grew, they overgrew, and they continued to become completely overgrown with weeds and unidentifiable plants.

 

It’s 5 years later now, I have finally taken the plunge and moved in, and have slowly been turning his bachelor pad into our home. With the majority of the interior done, I set my sites on the exterior of the house. After contemplating for months about where to start, I decided that the job was too overwhelming for me, so we hired a landscaper to come in, rip out the weeds and overgrown bushes, trim the odd bush that was worthy of saving, and prep the garden beds for a new life. It took a lot of work, but the job is done, and the gardens are empty and waiting!

 

I’ve been planning for this moment for years, so I got my Pinterest board together and started planning my gardens. Who would’ve known there were SO many resources and gadgets out there to aid in my gardening adventure!? Here are my top 4 favourites from my recent research: Read More
