Gardeners may not agree on the best mulch or the perfect fertilizer, but there’s one thing that every gardener agrees on: when it comes time to purchase tools, buy the best. Quality garden tools are an investment that yield dividends over time. Here are the top 10 gardening tools every community garden should own.

1. Trowel

A well-made trowel is your most important tool. From container gardening to large beds, a trowel will help you get your plantsĀ into the soil. Essential for everyone.

2. Hand Fork or Claw or Cultivator

A hand fork helps cultivate soil, chop up clumps, and work amendments into the soil. A hand fork is necessary for cultivating in closely planted beds.
