Tips for taking care of your Gardening Tools
Give a little attention to your garden tools and you’ll add years of life and use to the tools – and they’ll be much easier to use too!

Wash after each use. Make sure to always get all the soil off the tool, even if you have to use a screwdriver or larger tool to scrape it off.

Make sure your tools are dry before putting away. It’s a good idea to prevent rust and handle rot.

Sharpen cutting blades. A couple minutes with a sharpening stone will save lots of aggravation from a dull blade.

Clean any tools that have been used for chemical applications. Fertilizers and other chemicals can corrode metal parts quickly.
