There are few things that compare to the joy and satisfaction of being outdoors on a warm spring day, tending to a flower or vegetable garden. But, even the most dedicated gardeners have tools to help them complete their tasks.
Not only does a garden beautify a home and provide delicious homemade ingredients, it is refreshing and stress-reducing to be outside. Grab a large-brimmed hat, some sunscreen to prevent sunburn while gardening outdoors, and a pair of comfortable gardener's gloves to prevent slivers, cuts, blisters and scrapes, as well as keeping your skin clean. You may also wish to purchase bug repellent to keep biting insects at bay.
