What are the basic tools I need to do some landscaping?

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

I’m going to be starting a landscaping project, but I have no tools. I’m going to rip out some bushes and small trees, put in some grass and small shrubs and plant a flower garden. What are the 5 or so tools that I absolutely must have to have the basics covered?

    How to start a garden?

    Sunday, August 28th, 2011

    I have a small flower bed in the front of my home…it is in shade 95% of the time. I would like to plant some flowers or shrubs in there but I have never had a garden before. What tools do I need to begin, and what would work best in that situation?

      How does someone become an expert on Gardening, get certified and make it a career?

      Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

      I am interested in turning my small time hobby of gardening into a bit of a career. Are there classes, certifications, training that I can take in order to become an expert on plants, trees, etc? I’d like to have a deep knowledge of the various kinds of trees, shrubs, flowers that work in different climates, how to best plant and maintain them, to design landscapes with a variety of well-coordinated plants, etc. Should I try to become a certified arborist? Where do I start exploring this potential new career direction? Thanks.

          What can I use besides bleach to disinfect garden tools?

          Saturday, May 21st, 2011

          I wanted to prune some shrubs today but I need to disinfect my pruners because I used them on a diseased plant the last time. I just discovered that I’m out of bleach. Is there another household item that I can use for this?
