7 Useful Garden Tools Under $25 Gift Guide for Gardeners
Ready for 7 useful garden tools under $25? It’s so easy to walk into garden stores and want to purchase all the shiny new gardening tools but here’s a list of 7 garden tools that are useful and that you’ll probably also use for other projects around the house and other activities. These also make great gifts because there is no size to worry about and can be used by gardeners of any age. Make your gardening life easy, be prepared and use the right tools!
1. Pure Garden Rolling Garden Work Scooter with Tool Tray
Gardening is so good for your soul, unfortunately it’s not for your aching body. Most people also complain about their back and knee pain from gardening. This sturdy garden scooter does wonders for you back and knees. Keeping you from having to always be bending down or on your knees. It has a great tray underneath to keep your tools, drinks and phones. Comes in really handy for other projects around the house. I’ve even used it to move heavy items too!
2. Fiskars 28 Inch Bypass Looper
This looper is easy to handle but a strong tool for all those harder to cut bushes and tree limbs. Blade is sharp and easily cuts through 1 1/2 inch thick branches. Nice extra length comes in handy when reaching up or down. I use it in all seasons but love it specially for trimming back the thorny rose bushes during winter. Rust-resistant is a must since there’s always water when gardening. It’s also nice and light in weight so it’s easy to carry all around the garden. Easy to keep sharpened too!
3. 7 Piece Garden Tool Set with Tote
This is a great 7 piece tool set with everything you’ll need. I have my favorite tools but every single one of these will come in handy. Solid build of anti-corrosion aluminum but lightweight and very comfortable soft rubber handles. The set comes with the hand held weeder and trowel. Cultivator and weeding fork. The transplanter has inch measurements so you know how deep you’re planting, perfect! A great pruner with very comfortable ergonomic handle and safety lock. The tote has enough space to carry more tools, seeds, phones, drinks and more!
4. Leather Rose Gardening Gloves
Over the years I’ve spent more than a few dollars on gloves. This pair of gardening gloves is just about perfect. Soft enough to be able to move your fingers but strong enough to be thorn proof. It has an extra layer of protection and lined with soft material. Polyester cuffs that you can fold over to keep dirt messes away and protect your forearms. I use it during berry picking season and when working with roses or other thorny bushes.
5. Sun Shade Hat with Flap Cover
Perfect lightweight breathable sun hat. Most importantly it’s UPF 50+ sun protection with Anti-UV to keep you from getting sun burned. The flap will cover the back of your neck. The bow will help get a nice fit around the head and the drawstring will keep it from flying away on windy days. The front area is nice and sturdy and won’t flap down onto your face. Comes in other really cute colors too.
6. Garden Tool Sharpener
Next, this little tool sharpener will save you so much money! From sharpening the usual garden scissors, pruning shears and loopers it will also sharpen hoes, shovels and lawnmower blades. Keeping your tools clean and sharp will keep you from having to buy new tools every season. I really like the handle that protects your fingers and the reversible blades. Keeping your tools sharp will help keep extra stress off your hands and arms. It amazing me how much easier it is to prune with a newly sharpened tool.
7. Waterproof Bug and Mosquito Bracelet
Lastly, I love gardening but I don’t love the mosquitos or the ticks! You’ll feel it more during those hot summer months when the bugs are alive and well and wanting to feast. These bug bracelets are super adjustable (can be worn on ankles) and waterproof. The smell is gentle and made with natural repellents. Dee-free, it’s safe for pregnant mommies and little gardeners. Will also repel other bugs like gnats, wasps, fleas, chiggers and more. Comes with refills. Great to use with other outdoor activities like hiking and boating.
There you go! 7 Useful Garden Tools Under $25 that you’ll love and probably use around the house for other projects and activities.
Hi there, Great tips by the way and thank you. I did have a
question though. I’m hoping you can answer it for me since you seem
to be pretty knowledgeable about gardening. How does Preen (Trifluralin) stop new weeds from growing
without killing grown plants? I’m trying to get rid of weeds without hurting my
vegetables. If you had some insight I would greatly appreciate it.
Preen prevents seeds from forming roots so if you’re seeding your vegetables it will prevent them from growing too. Anything that has already grown, even weeds, will stick around. I usually use it on my established beds that have perinneals but not on my vegetable beds. Before I plant or seed I’ll usually cover up the soil with newspapers or cardboard for a month or more. This will keep weed seeds from growing and will give my plants a head start. I also mulch between my vegetables to keep weeds from growing and to keep moisture. Good luck and let me know if you find better ways to keep those weeds out. 🙂
