It’s Spring and that means it’s time for some yard work, or home and garden work, cottage and garden work…well you get the picture. There are a couple of garden tools that are really helpful to gardeners and cottagers and home owners in general that I want to show you.
Among the first garden tools everyone should have is a good ‘lopper’ I have a couple and I have to say, I use them frequently.
I find a lopper is a great way to prune bushes and tree branches around home and around the cottage. Much easier than using an axe or a handsaw and much safer than using a chain saw to prune small branches. This one is called the Fiskars 9154 PowerGear 32-Inch Bypass Lopper
This handy garden tool comes with a limited lifetime warranty. It’s great for cutting large vines and branches up to 2 inches thick, and has a precision-ground, easily replaceable blade. These are really handy around the camp for cutting off tree branches, limbing trees and cutting bushes and shrubbery. I use mine all the time. They’re also great for clearing a path in the woods, maybe around your deer stand or a path through the woods to your favorite trout stream. You can order a lopper from Amazon for around 30 dollars.

The second item that I think is really great are these Clean Air Distributing FLA1K20 Lawn Aerating Shoes
For around 15 dollars and a little bit of walking, you can aerate your lawn at home and at the camp. All you do is strap on a pair of these aerating shoes an walk around the lawn.
I’ve paid as much as $100 to have our lawn aerated, and these will do just as good a job for $10.49 a mere fraction of the cost of a lawn aerating machine. I think these are a fantastic idea. You can wear these when you mow the lawn and they will help you to grow a thick luxurious lawn, as the holes created allow air and moisture to get deep down into the roots of grass stimulating growth.
