Essential Gardening Tools You Need To Own

We all want to help our gardens look their very best all year round. To do this, we need the right equipment to help us. But if you’re new to the world of gardening, knowing which tools to buy can be overwhelming. While you could buy every item available in your local gardening store, this can be a huge waste of money. You may buy items that you don’t require or ones that you don’t know how to use correctly. So rather than buying everything, why not buy top quality essentials instead. Here are three gardening tools that every gardener should have to use in their outdoor space.
Lawn Mower
Whether your lawn is small or covers acres, a lawn mower is a crucial gardening tool all homeowners need. Having a well-manicured lawn can make your garden look more spacious and appealing to spend time in. It also shows that you take pride in your garden and keep it week maintained. You can find a lawn mower for sale online, in newspapers and garden centres. But just remember that the types of lawn mower vary significantly from manual to ride on. Think about the size of your lawn and seek advice from the experts at your garden centre. You should also consider the additional cost of tuning and maintaining your lawn mower as some will require more than others.
Garden Spade
Gardens spades are another tool that all gardeners need to own due to their multiple uses. They can be used to dig holes and loosen the soil to plant flowers and trees in your garden. Another use is to remove weeds and dead plants from your flower beds. Spades are also useful for removing snow from your driveways and paths during the winter. You can find them at most garden centres in an array of different sizes. Test out a few options before you buy to make sure the height is perfect for you to use. If it’s too short, it may cause you back pain as you garden. The handle should also be comfortable to use and ideally have a hand grip included.
Hose
To keep your garden looking as fresh and beautiful as possible, a garden hose is crucial. This tool makes it easier to keep your garden hydrated and also encourages your plant life to flourish. Hose pipes are also ideal for watering hanging baskets which may be difficult to reach with ease. You can find hose pipes for sale online and again in garden centres. Before buying, consider what the most appropriate length would be to reach your entire garden. If buying a second-hand hose, always check for holes and test before you buy. You might also want to see if there are any attachments which can be added to the hose to enhance its capabilities further.

When buying these items, always buy the best quality you can comfortably afford. These items will last longer, break less and help you garden better. Once you’ve mastered using these tools, you can then slowly start adding to your collection one piece at a time.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
