Start your home vegetable garden project by loosening up the soil. You’ll need a spading fork for this – Buildzone calls theirs a 4-prong fork. It is used to dig down into hard soil and break up the ground and will prepare and improve the soil for your plants.
You’ll want to level the soil after turning the soil and prior to planting, as well as, to remove large clods of earth or rocks. Buildzone has a great rake for this. Turning it over will and using the flat side to smooth the soil in preparation for planting, as well.
A watering can is great for watering jobs too small for a hose. But a garden hose can also be used for watering small plants provided that it’s fitted with an adjustable nozzle. They can do everything from gently sprinkling new plants to supplying a hard stream when it’s time to cleanup. Buildzone offers both gardening tools. A hose is also useful for carrying water over longer distances.
Buildzone’s round-ended shovel is great for digging holes, moving soil or compost, turning soil to prevent weeds, breaking up dry chunks of earth, and so on. And should your garden develop killer plants, a wheelbarrow can be handy to haul them after weeding. You can also use Buildzone’s wheelbarrows for transporting soil, rocks, sand, harvested food, and so on. Garden shears from Buildzone are also ideal for when it’s time to harvest your veggies.
