You can throw away all your weeders and trowels if you invest in one of these never-fail soil knives. Stainless steel with inch markings as well. And the orange handle makes it visible -- and find-able -- almost anywhere in the garden. My perfect garden tool, the one I'd never do without.
Garden Glide from Gardeners Edge
It's the easy way to haul mulch, plants, and almost anything else without breaking your back. And best of all, you don't have to lift anything into the wheelbarrow or cart. Once you have one, you'll never be without it.
I have two of these planters, and I can't say enough good things about them. And they come in blue, purple, white and black as well. And the self-watering element really works, too.
And many other great finds in their catalog ... make sure to check out the website.
