Gardening takes work. That’s what makes it so rewarding when you finally bite into that plump, rich tomato you started growing months ago.
And let’s be honest, it’s dirty work. Make gardening a little easier on yourself with garden products that can pull their own weight.
Get ready to get your garden on with these awesome garden accessories.
1. Muck Boots
Gardening is a dirty business. Keep your feet dry and clean with muck boots from The Original Muck Boot Company.
We like the versatility of this mid-length boot. When you work up a sweat from all of that pruning and digging, just roll the sides down to cool off your legs. And, a cute floral or tomato print lining will peek out.
But these rubber boots aren’t just cute. They’re designed to shed debris and to easily hose off or wipe off dirt after those extra mucky gardening jobs.
These boots come in green, purple, and orange with patterned linings. Or, you can choose all black or black with pink and a solid lining.
2. Garden Tool Set
Every gardener needs the basic gardening tools. Don’t underestimate the usefulness of a good trowel and fork head.
We love this garden tool set from Anthropologie because it’s made of wood and stainless steel. No plastic here! You’ll want to plant, pot, and dig every chance you get when you have pretty tools like these.
And there’s nothing wrong with choosing tools that look cute hanging up too.
3. Kneeling Pad
Anybody who’s spent time in the garden knows that growing those beautiful tomatoes means a lot of hours spent bending over and kneeling. Don’t kill your knees and back. A simple kneeling pad can really make a difference. (Even for young knees and backs!)
We like this kneeling pad because it has a bit more style than your typical foam kneeling pad. It’s two inches thick. So, you’ll have a nice cushy spot to protect your knees.
The sturdy handle makes it easy to carry around and the outer cover zips off for easy washing.
4. Slate Plant Markers
Admit it. You’ve forgotten what you planted before.
Plant markers may seem unnecessary, but they can save you from a few gardening headaches. Maybe you’ll have to wait until a plant grows up to identify it. Or, you’ll never figure out the specific variety of tomato you planted.
Easily keep track of what you planted and its growing needs with handy plant markers.
We like these slate plant markers because they’re permanently etched. The writing won’t rub off on your hands like marker does on plastic labels. And, the writing won’t fade from sunlight and rain.
These plant markers are made from reclaimed roofing slates that are weather and rust-resistant. So, they won’t blow away in the wind like cheap plastic labels.
They come in a set of herbs (basil, dill, mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme.) Or, a set of vegetables (beans, broccoli, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce, peppers, squash, and tomatoes.)
5. Gardening Gloves
Get inspired to get into your garden with these pretty gardening gloves from Anthropologie. Just don’t blame us if you want to pull them on every chance you get. But, hey, there’s nothing wrong with spending a little longer in the garden.
6. Sun Hat
Keep the sun off your face in style with a sun hat.
This raffia straw hat from Free People features a wide brim that provides a lot of coverage from the sun. An adjustable band on the inside will keep the hat snug and in place while you garden. And it’ll help keep it put on windy days.
The hat comes in two colors: espresso or fawn.
7. Mobile Planter Cart
Make life a little easier and bring your garden to you.
This stylish mobile planter cart from Gardener’s Supply Company stands at a comfortable height for easy tending. You can fill the planter box with herbs, flowers, or vegetables. The planter box already includes drainage holes, so you’re ready to plant right away.
We like this cart because it comes in a rich, vibrant blue that will show off your plants and look stylish on your porch or deck.
Made of powder-coated steel, this cart is rust resistant. The wheels and handle make it easy to move around, so you can push your plants into the rain or the sun as needed. And the handy shelf underneath is perfect for storing garden accessories, like tools and pots.
If you don’t have a lot of space, it’d make a great addition to a balcony or apartment garden.
