In the case of tools do you usually (though not always) get is what you pay for, so it's best to avoid suspiciously cheap things, especially if you plan to use this thing on a regular basis. For example, steel is much cheaper than stainless, and pretty good to use if take care of it properly.
After use, they all need a mandatory cleaning of dirt, grass and the like, and then, before storing it, they wipe the oily rag. Do not hold the hand tools on the floor of a garage or shed - hang them on the wall, if possible. Keep the sharp tool out of reach for strangers and children. Turn lawn mower so that the blades were directed not to pass. In winter, check to see if they need sharpening.
Hand garden tools and photos
There are many types of hand cultivator - they are used for the purpose to treat the soil at a depth of 5-8 cm Most gardeners do not need none -. Digging fork with subsequent leveling rake should be enough.
Rake - This universal manual garden tool, without which many jobs are simply not possible. Many short teeth is set in a horizontal plate. Choose the working portion of a width of 30 cm with 10-14 teeth.
Tine cultivator you can buy with removable central teeth for ripping along the rows. There are models with wheels.
The star-wheel cultivator - it is somewhat star-wheel with hoe - pushing it back and forth, are finely ground in split.
heavy hoe It is used to break up the surface of the heavy soils. It can be combined with a cultivator dvuhzubtsovym top.
Next you can see in the photo garden tools, which often are at the disposal of ordinary summer residents:
In the garden, it seems, there is always work related to cutting - removal of faded inflorescences, Hedge trimming, cutting and shortening branches, etc...
This work can be hard, but you can make it a lot easier if you have a suitable garden cutting tools. You need to choose the right type of cutting tool, taking into account the thickness of the wood to be cut. For example, you will find that some pruners uncomfortable for your hands and needs. Finally, deciding what tools you want to buy, make sure you choose the best quality you can afford and keep them sharp and clean after use.
Very interesting to watch the skilled gardener using a knife for cutting, grafting and so on. E., But in inexperienced hands it can be a dangerous weapon. If you are not trained in its use, carry in a pocket folding knife to cut the string, and so on, but in order to cut the stems, use secateurs
Garden secateurs vary in size from small to cutting flowers to large heavy-duty types. You will need only one pruner - a model of approximately 20cm length of a general purpose. Use them to the stems of up to 1 cm in diameter.
Direct secateurs - one sharpened cutting blade rests on a flat plate (anvil). Always cut down to the anvil. Cuts with less effort than the curved blade type, but the cut may be a little bit more. See the pruner in the photo, which is presented below:
Curved shears - sharpened blade moves past the broad blade-plate. Secateur type scissors - an alternative name. Usually longer than the type of Anvil. The most popular type.
Buy this ratchet pruner, if you have a weak hand. You only need a slight compression - the stem is cut off part, and the ratchet advances the blade. Other slight contraction deepens segment - it may be necessary to 4 contractions.
In order to cut the branch 1- 4 cm thick, using a long-handled garden pruner. Handle length 45-60 cm give extra leverage. There are also shears with telescopic handles. Garden pruner on the photo on the long arm is shown below:
The main use of clippers - shearing hedges. Select a pair of scissors with comfortable handles and light blades - using heavy scissors shearing long fence becomes a tedious job.
Trimmer Hedge. Model-powered power suit if the fence near the power points - or buy food on the batteries. With refuelable gasoline model, work hard. Recommended blade length of 45 cm.
Garden hacksaw. When the branches thicker than a broom handle, use a nail file, and not a tool with blades. For a random branch, you can use a regular saw, but many prefer curved garden hacksaw.
The main value of the motorized cultivator for the gardener - the ability to dig up large areas of land. If you are going to treat a large area - tiller must be powerful. If this site is small and most of the cultivated land is occupied by a lawn and ornamental plantings, the walk-behind may be less powerful. This will mean less work than when digging, but it will also be made less carefully. If you buy it, please note that there must be an appropriate range of applications - hoes, picks, Ridger, soil aerators, etc...
Scoop - a necessary tool. It is also used to dig up perennial weeds. Buy stainless steel scoops - one standard size and small narrow approximately 5 cm. Hand forks of the same width as the shovels, but they have 3-5 short teeth instead of Soviet-type blade. They are used for weeding and loosening the soil around the plants. Choose a plug with flat teeth - in other forms have shortcomings. Hand fork unlike the scoop is not so necessary.
There are many tools to work with one hand - a pair of scissors, pen which compresses palm grabber for scrap, etc., controlled by pressing a lever... This is a boon for people who are restricted in only one hand, but it is more tedious than using two-handed versions of these tools.
The need to bend down to pick up the secateurs, twine, shovel, etc., can be tedious -.. You can wear a belt or a gardener to take a bag to carry small tools, moving inside the garden. The minimum that is necessary to have this case for pruning shears to keep both hands free while cutting at a time when you are not cut off branches. This bag or a belt made of canvas, and correspond to approximately 10-liter bucket - pockets accommodate gloves, seeds secateurs, rope hand fork, etc...
Many gardening includes the use of instruments with a short handle and work on all fours. For many people this is not possible due to age or disability, and for them there are several scoops models long-handled forks, cultivators, and so on. D.
Usually get a handle with a set of interchangeable nozzles.
Device for planting bulbs
Scoop - is the most popular tool for planting and better use of it, if the bulbs have a variety of diameters. Device for planting bulbs is often recommended, but it is a preferable alternative only under certain conditions. The soil should be moist and not sandy, bulbs should be planted about the same depth. Model of long-handled choose to not have to bend down. The device is pushed into the ground leg and the ground is removed from the drill manual lever.
Too often, the tools when not in use, left leaning against the wall and on the floor of the garage or shed. A lot of time is wasted on searching for the right tool, for when he has a job, and there is a risk of stepping on rakes, hoes, and so on. D. It is far better to attach holders for tools of galvanized or coated steel wall. Organize storage tool in the country by using the racks and shelves.
