To quote the wise ancient Roman politician, Cicero, “If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”. I love spending time doing some quality reading in my garden, it really is the best of both worlds – books and fresh air.
It took me a lot of garden work before I could get to enjoy reading outdoors though, and since my tools weren’t proving to be of any use after a certain amount of time (shorter than I had expected), I figured there must be a way I could invest in durable tools that would still be affordable, and effort-saving which is why my next purchase was all about power tools. I’ve come up with a list of a few basic power tools any gardener should have to make the most of gardening.
One of the most annoying issues to present itself is the appearance of pesky weeds. As you’d come to see, there are all sorts of weeds, and these things can be very resilient, sometimes even impossible to get rid of with a lawn mower; nightmare! After doing a bit of tiring work, getting rid of them by hand, I didn’t only end up with blisters, but also spent more efforts than necessary, so eventually I resorted to the help of a whipper snipper. Since the choices of these tools are vast, you’d be able to find cheap whipper snippers to make a great purchase.
These tools can save you from weeds at lawn edges, between the fence, outdoor tiles, and they can do so in the blink of an eye, with one quick motion. Along with cheap whipper snippers, you can find other affordable power tools that are designed to be durable, yet still save you the time and money, such as those that are two-in-one, like the combo of a lawn mower and a leaf blower. You’d be getting rid of garden debris in no time, without having to rake.
If you have trees that require some cutting every now and then, you need all the help you can get from a chain saw. You’d be able to trim branches to perfection in an instant, and even if you don’t think you could handle one of these mighty tools, you don’t have to go for the pro petrol type, but go for the lightweight, and practically noiseless, electric option. It could also come in handy to you with prepping a bit of fire wood for the winter.
And, last but not least, garden tillers. Trust me, when you do some more planting, a tool such as this can save you from all the back aches and pains, and not only would you get to dig up soil for planting, but you’d also enable water to easily find its way through the soil all the way to the plants’ roots. Now that my garden work is done with my set of power tools, I’m off to read a book in the winter sun!
