8 Gardeners Share their Favorite Tools

Garden tools come in many shapes and forms. They can be old or new, vintage or right out of the box.  Whatever the tools are that gardeners use, they are usually very special to them.

The right garden tools makes any job in the garden much easier, whether you’re planting, weeding, pruning, or taking care of indoor plants.  There is  no denying that gardening is made all the easier by good-quality, appropriate tools.

I asked my friend from my collective Facebook Page, The Garden Charmers, to share some links and photos of their favorite garden tools.  Many of them had a single special tool that makes their work easier. Others had a whole shed full of them.  But all have special significance in some way.

What I ended up with is a virtual tour of my friends tool kits.  How many of these are familiar to you?

Here is a list of the projects in this garden tool kit roundup.
