List of the Best Modern Gardening Accessories
Every gardener needs some modern gardening tools to keep their garden and yard pruned and perfect. Here are some options for the best, most stylish gardening tools to keep your garden looking lush. After all, you might want some trendy and sleek gardening products, but you will also need them to be practical in order to grow healthy, beautiful, and delicious plants and flowers. This list has everything you need to become a pro gardener in no time. Let’s fill up your gardener’s toolbox with some of the top garden products:
Pretty Gardening Gloves
The first accessory every gardener needs is a set of gardening gloves. If you’re new to gardening, you might not think you need gloves to start, but your hands will most certainly disagree. Some of the most important garden products are the ones that protect you, the gardener! Not only do gloves keep your hands clean, but they also protect your hands and arms from cuts, scrapes, and punctures, which are all too common while gardening. (Think about those thorny roses!) But don’t worry: you can get functional gardening gloves that are still stylish. Consider these pretty gardening gloves from TheCelticFarm on Etsy.
Waterproof Gardening Boots
Now your hands are protected, but what about your feet? Every gardener should invest in a good pair of waterproof boots for treading through the garden after a rainfall or a good watering. Try a pair of Hunter boots or Muck boots for a stylish, modern look!
Gardening Scissors, Pruners, or Shears
Every gardener needs a sharp pair of scissors or pruners (or two! It can be helpful to have garden shears in a couple of different sizes.) These Walnut Garden Scissors are made with heat-treated stainless steel and inlaid with walnut wood, so they are both beautiful and effective.
Get a garden knife that can dig, cut, saw, and measure. The Hori Hori knife is a Japanese-inspired, eco-friendly gardening multi-tool that can help you with all of your garden tasks.
Protect your knees while you prune with a padded garden kneeler. This floral option from Target is the prettiest foam-patterned kneeler you’ll ever see, and it will keep your needs cushioned (and your pants protected from unsightly grass stains.)
Garden Folding Seat
If kneeling in the garden isn’t your thing, opt for a garden folding seat instead. There are plenty of options for stools that you can stow away once you’re done gardening for the day.
You will probably still want to wear your oldest clothes while gardening, but a good garden apron can protect your clothes and your skin from scratches. This knee-length apron also has several pockets to store your favorite gardening accessories for you while you’re hard at work.
Gardening Tool Belt
Get hands-free storage for all of your favorite gardening tools with a tool belt! No more traipsing back and forth to your storage shed for that tool you forgot when everything you need is strapped handily around your waist.
Aesthetically-Pleasing Watering Can
Throw away that old plastic watering can that blows around your garden every time it rains and opt for a chic, stainless steel version from West Elm instead. It’s so pretty it could be decor, but the rust-resistant material will ensure that it still holds up with regular use.
Fashionable Sun Hat
Look like a pro while protecting yourself from the sun with a sun hat. You can choose a fashionable option that will take you from your garden to poolside all summer with this Sloggers Women’s Braided Wide Brim Hat.
