There are gardens in many sizes and styles and there is gardening equipment to match as well. If you have a garden that may be small and indoors, then you most probably don't have many gardening tools. If you have a garden that fills half of your back yard, then you probably will have a whole lot of gardening equipment. You might have to make do with less than optimal tools, if you can't afford everything you need to begin with.
Even when you cannot afford some high-tech and expensive device for your garden, you will be able to get some kind of cultivating tool. Depending on how sincere you are, it might be anything from power tools to all-hand tools. The really basic tools include hand tools like diggers, shovels, rakes and trowels. These are pretty user friendly for getting the garden all set to be planted. Several other tools and equipment that can easily be used are a mattock, a pickax, and a wheel cultivator. The time it takes is usually cut down by using power tools but they do cost more than conventional hand tools.

Of the many tools that are needed, the tiller is probably the most essential piece of equipment. It can get the garden all set for planting by breaking up the garden soil, along with chopping up any debris, mixing in fertilizer and composting. If you don't want to buy a tiller, you can probably rent one or borrow it from someone. Power tools which might be popular for gardening include chain-saws, chippers or garden shredders. Pruning tools are essential to get if you are planning to have shrubs, hedges or small trees in your garden. In the event the branches are between half an inch to two inches, then you'll need lopping shears otherwise, if they are smaller, pruning shears will work fine. For branches around fifteen feet above ground, they can be reached by way of a pole pruner. But if you plan to be a die hard gardener, then you want something more heavy-duty like a pruning saw or hedge shears.
Since you can't rely on rain as a water source, your garden will be needing access to water. Even though a garden hose is pretty important to have, it might not be absolutely necessary. You will find sprinklers and drip hoses, that will be able to use timers, as long as you don't mind spending the money. Without gardening equipment to make things easier, many people wouldn't do it. There are people who like to get their hands dirty when they garden but even then they still have a tool like a hoe or rake. In addition to planning on the right seeds and the right soil, you also need to locate the right equipment for your garden.
When you prepare your garden, you'll want to include gardening tools in your budget. You don't need the best tools, or perhaps new ones, but you do need the basic tools or your garden will never get done.
