nurturing a graceful garden requires the right tools

If there’s anything we’ve picked up from 10+ years of home ownership – plus a few months of lockdown – it’s that a lush garden can only be achieved by dedicated watering, constant planting, continual weeding and pruning.

All of which requires not only hard work, but the proper tools.  And if you, like us, have found yourself looking around your shed or garage uninspired – you’re not alone.  A worn green hose, rusty metal shovels and old buckets hardly inspire a robust day’s work outdoors.

Just because you are planting vegetables or flower beds doesn’t mean that your hard work can’t be done in style. In fact, we’d argue gardening gear in bright colorways, eye-catching metallics and fun patterns makes the task much more enjoyable.

Not to mention that almost every item on our list is beautiful enough to be kept out in the open – not shut away in a shed.
