Gardening is one of the more rewarding and satisfying activities anyone can do for themselves. It means you are spending time outside, growing food for you, your family, and your friends. Gardening pays you back in so many ways!

As gardeners we know that to garden successfully means having the right tools to do any job you need. We have put together a handy list of our must have hand tools for every gardener.

Hori-Hori Gardening Knife

The Japanese Hori-Hori gardening knife is amazing for digging, cutting, sawing, sod cutting, pruning, harvesting, and dividing plants. Pick one which comes with a holster for your belt because once you start using the Hori-Hori, you will not want it to leave your side!

Weed Knife

The weed knife’s unique shape allows for the ease of removing weeds from any area.


The weeder with the built in lever and pick will allow you to reach tight spaces and remove weeds with minimal damage to surrounding plants.


For digging, mixing, and planting. A dependable towel or two is so needed for every garden.

Hand Rake

Clean up debris and weeds in and around your plants without disturbing them. Perfect for removing grass clumps and turning up soil.

Hand Pruner

For accurate, smooth cuts when pruning and good hand pruner is needed. This is another tool we recommend you keep with you at all times.

Micro Snips

For precision pruning for herbs, ornamentals, blooms, deadheading, and trimming of delicate plants.


Garden pouches you can wear like a belt or fit into your back pocket allow you to keep your most important tools at hands reach. Keep your pruners, weed knife, Hori-Hori blade and micro snips in a safe and convenient pouch at all times, ready for any job in the garden.


Gloves come in a variety of styles and fashion colours. You can choose from rubber for working with dirt, to soft leather for working with pruners and other hand tools to durable tough leather for removing tough weeds and prickles.

Kneeling Stool

The kneeling stool, while not exactly a hand tool, should be considered as part of your tool collection for the benefits to you it will give. Save your knees and your back at the same time! Use for kneeling to weed, assist in standing, and gives you a place to sit and rest. Lightweight and folds up easily for storage, a kneeling stool should be a part of your gardening kit.

As seasoned gardeners, we understand the importance of having reliable hand tools by our side. From the trusty trowel to the essential pruning shears, each tool plays a crucial role in maintaining a thriving garden.

As an avid gardener myself, I can vouch for the necessity of these hand tools firsthand. They are not just tools to me; they are companions in my gardening journey. They have helped me dig, plant, prune, and weed with ease, turning daunting tasks into enjoyable moments of connection with nature. Happy gardening!
