Proper care for your gardening tools is extremely essential. Here areĀ a few, simple tips that will prolong your tools’ life.

  1. Don’t put them away covered in soil or wet. All gardening tools should be cleansed after use and dried with a rag.
  2. Apply vegetable oil to steel tools to minimize rusting.
  3. Sharpen axes, hoes, shovels and anything else that needs to be sharpened at least once a season.
  4. Store the tools properly, in an organized manner. Instead of tossing them on the garage floor, hang them on a wall or place the smaller ones in a big bucket.
  5. When the season is over, coat all your tools in oil before storing them.
