When you think of garden clothes you probably think of a large, floppy hat and bright colors, some oversized boots and a pair of sturdy gloves. The reality is that the clothes that you wear should reflect the gardening project you are trying to tackle. If you are just doing some light pruning in your front yard, you can feel free to accessorize to your heart’s content, giant floppy hat and all! On the other hand, if you are going to be doing some digging or transplanting, you need to wear some clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. You can always wear a pair of pants or shorts that you don’t wear anymore. Your shoes can get dirty along the way, so if you are going to be any serious work you may want to put on some waterproof boots or maybe an old pair of running shoes.


Your gloves are your best friends in the garden. A good pair of gloves protect you from pesky thorns and sharp branches while giving you enough dexterity to easily prune your plants and pull weeds. Gloves come in all shapes and sizes, so it is important to try on your gloves before you buy them. You can get gloves that are perfect for any gardening project from hand digging to pruning those thorny roses. Make sure if you are going to be doing any digging that you wear comfortable gloves to stave off painful blisters that will keep you out of the yard.


We’ve all heard the old adage that a carpenter is only as good as their tools. If you are looking to become better at gardening, the first place you need to look is your toolshed and your garage. If you trying to build a beautiful garden, it is going to be almost impossible to accomplish that with just a shovel and a pair of gloves, though a healthy dose of elbow grease can certainly help you get on the right track.

The first tool that you need to keep your garden looking beautiful is a sharp pair of pruners or garden shears. A good set of sheers will help you easily cut through hard to reach branches, thorny bushes, and anything else in your garden with ease. It is definitely worth the investment to get a great pair of these essential garden tools.

Another set of tools that is immensely important to a healthy garden is a good set of digging tools. From a sturdy shovel to a comfortable trowel, these digging tools will make projects from weeding to planting new annuals a breeze.
