10 Essential tools for the gardener - Wheelbarrow, garden gloves, pruner, shovel, etc.

Hey there! 

These past few weeks I've been out in the yard, working lots on our garden. While fixing our homes landscape, I've realized how important it is to have quality tools by your side to help with whatever project you are working on, making it much easier to work and not take so long.

Having that in mind, I went ahead and put together this list of 10 gardening tools that will make you enjoy working in your garden a lot more.

This tool set has it all. It includes an apron with plenty of pockets, a comfy foldable kneeler that doubles as a seat and three of the most used tools: a trowel, a rake and a pruner.

2. Digz Signature Hi-Dex Glove
Working in the garden calls for a set of durable and comfortable gloves. And these Digz Signature women's gloves not only look good, but they do a great job protecting your hands.

The leather palm and finger and thumb patches are reinforced for more durability. The pretty material on the back is stretchable for comfort and good fit, with a breathable mesh insert.
The index finger has a special coating for you to use your cell phone while wearing the gloves. However, the most important feature, at least for me, is that they are machine washable.
