From digging to raking to pruning and nearly every job in between, tools are an essential element of your gardening routine. Equipped with the right tool, your to-do list can get a lot easier (and a lot shorter). But tools are an investment, and it pays to start small, with no-cost or low-cost helpers: We have 25 tools that you can buy or make. Pruning is a necessary garden task, but different tools are required for different kinds (and sizes) of jobs; find the right fit for the job before you begin. Power tools come into play in the yard, too -- from cordless drills to chain saws and more; see what you need and what options might be a good fit. If environmental friendliness is top of mind for you, garden alternatives can help you save time and energy -- and save the planet -- including battery-power lawn and garden equipment. Another way to use tools to go green: Collect your own rain to reuse. Save on your water bill with a rain barrel that you make or purchase. Once you have the tools, take care of them and organize them; we have tips and tricks to keep everything in its place -- and everything in good shape.
