Strawberry Plant

In every task, hobby, or special project you take on, there are always things that can and many times will make it easier to do. This post is about things that make gardening easier. Most of what is on this list are things that I either already have or plan on purchasing.

Because of where I live, the ground is not the easiest place to grow, so I do mostly container gardening. I try to pick up my containers from the dollar store, or yard sales, or use things around the house to make my own elevated planters. We have so many used tires around the house, that project was a given. However, tires aren't the only thing that makes good planters, I have seen people use shoes, buckets, and many other items most of have around the house already. Really anything that will hold soil and release excess water will work.

So, where to start with this list of things we need to make gardening easier. I guess the best place to start is with the planters. So, if you don't want to make your own I would suggest the dollar store. They have so many sizes and different types.

  2. Hanging Planters
  3. Plastic planters

Just to name a few. For soil, one could go to the nearest Home Depot or Loews, but I prefer organic and there I usually go to Burpee's for my soil, fertilizers and seeds because they seem to have the best selection.

Of course there are so many others things that will make gardening easier too such as kneeling mats, however, this is just a short list for starting out. I hope this has been helpful to you and let me know if there are other tools or things that you like to use in gardening. I look forward to talking to you.

Have a great day!
