Spade or Shovel
A basic garden necessity is a shovel or spade. The first has a scoop blade and is best used to move dirt and garden soil around; the latter has a flat blade great for cutting edges, digging, and dividing plants.
The edge of a spade should be kept sharpened for clean and efficient cutting that will cause the least amount of damage to plants.
ForksForks are useful for turning and aerating compost and breaking up lumps of soil - and digging potatoes.
Chipping HoeA chipping hoe is a handy tool for getting rid of small weeds.
RakeA rake is also a basic requirement for the garden. The strong rake with the flat head and sharp metal prongs is used for smoothing a garden bed and getting out the last of the lumps and weeds.
