Earlier this week the girls and I started more seeds in containers. We’re hoping by next week – once it finally stops raining for a bit – we can start sowing directly in our garden.
While the going has been a bit slow – it’s not like there’s a full-house renovation requiring all of our attention and finances – I am excited to make even the smallest steps towards my gardening dreams.
It’s no secret that I prefer my surroundings to be aesthetically pleasing. When I made the decision to get into gardening this year, it was no different. Today I’ve rounded up some beautiful gardening tools to make this hobby that much more enjoyable.
- I love how feminine this sun hat is! It’s foldable, has UPF 50, and is under $30.
- I’ve spent what feels like months looking for a vintage library catalog on Marketplace to organize my growing collection of seeds. Unfortunately, I haven’t found a single option under $2,000 – I kid you not. This wooden alternative, although not vintage, is so pretty – and only $60!
- If I must own tools – and in gardening you obviously must – let them be gold in color! These pruning shears are under $10 and come with a security lock, which is vital when you have budding gardeners, like I do.
- The girls and I recently DIYed a simple potting bench using cinder blocks and old wooden shelves, but if you want something a little more aesthetically pleasing, this option is under $100!
- I am typically not a floral-pattern-loving type of gal, but it feels wrong to be working in the garden in a boring apron. This sweet one is 100% cotton and currently 18% off. If grey and blue is not your favorite color palette, there are over 30 additional color options!
- For less than $6 you can get 100 of these white and modern plant labels! That’s approximately $0.05 per label.
- I own a similar brass watering can that I bought last year. But what I like about this option – besides its vintage aesthetic – is that it holds 1 liter of water and is currently on sale!
- Okay, I know a woven basket for your gardening tools is not an absolute must – but how cute, right?! This is actually a cutlery holder, but I love that it can double as a gardening caddie.
- Earlier this week I worked on cleaning up our flowers beds in the front of the house, and believe me, I wish I had a pair of these long gardening gloves! They’re made from leather, have nearly 6,000 excellent reviews, and are available in six different colors.
- Although there are dozen of different gardening tools you could buy, what you really need is these three items. Currently 40% off, this trio includes a hand trowel, transplant trowel, and a cultivator hand rake. I love the simple, modern design!
- While I haven’t yet graduated to compost-collecting status, I have been gathering used coffee grounds to use in the garden. I can see totally myself using this compost bin for that! I like the modern design and the fact that it’s 100% rust-proof. Plus, it comes with non-smell charcoal filters and is currently on sale.
- Why use a boring wheelbarrow, when you can use a pretty gardening cart? Best part: This cart costs way less than a wheelbarrow. Reviews mention ease of use, aesthetics, and price as main advantages.
- If you’ve been searching for gardening boots, you better run, because these are currently almost 50% off! The light pink color is sweet, but there are 14 other color options to choose from!
- This stainless steel plant mister would be perfect for watering seedlings. I saw a similarly-shaped glass version at Target’s dollar spot earlier this week, but if you’re as obsessed with brass as I am, this one is it.
- This vegetable and flower basket has only 5-star reviews – almost 100 of them, in fact! Yes, it’s a bit of a splurge, but it’s so beautiful! If you love to share photos of your harvest, this basket is Instagram-approved. If not for yourself – get it for a garden-loving friend!
- Last but not least, a shovel that is as beautiful as it is functional. I wouldn’t mind having this tool on display in our mudroom – it’s that pretty.
Well, I hope you enjoyed perusing this gardening tool roundup as much as I enjoyed putting it together. Once we’re not pouring all of our resources into the house renovation, I plan to buy numbers 2, 3, 8, and 10 to start. What about you? Find any favorites?
