Gardening is Therapeutic

Gardening is a wonderful way to spend time in nature without anyone or anything there to undo your sense of calm and contentedness.   Gardening is Therapeutic in so many ways!  Not only is it therapeutic,  but you get to create and enjoy the labors of your work.  Now that could be sitting by the garden and admiring all the beautiful flowers or it could mean having a nice fresh salad with vegetables that you helped to grow!

I can't think of a better way to have beauty and bounty all in one place at the same time.  Oh how wonderful it is to garden.

In order to get that garden to that state though requires some work, and work requires tools.  Oh of course we have our two hands,  but there are tools that Gardeners just must have and to that end I would like to make some suggestions, gently pointing you to some of the tools that we just can't live without!

Review these tools and if there is something that you really need, read on and put them on your "Gardening Bucket List"  who knows, there just might be a new tool to make your gardening chores easier and more rewarding than it already is......


No home should be without at least one of these. I have a couple, one for me and one for my other half, that way we aren't fighting for the same tool at the same time.......he has his and I have mine and we will battle the weeds together....The Best Chemical Free Method Of Ridding Your Yard Of Weeds


Having a Garden also means that sometimes you will need to dig. Nothing makes that job easier than a good Garden Fork. See for yourself how this tool will make some job easier.....A garden fork does many jobs

Those tools are for some of the harder work,  but there are tools that will help you to enjoy the beauty in the garden too.  Just see what a good pair of garden nippers can do:

Then there are the tools that are used in other parts of the world, that have found a home here too!  One of my personal favorites is a Japanese Sickle.  I love this tool!

This is a short list of tools that will make gardening a real pleasure.  If you have a favorite tool that you would like to see featured, then write about it and let me know so that after all is said and done, we will have a great list of wonderful tools for every garden everywhere.

  1. My favorite garden tools are the ones that cut things. I'm the one in the family that is always pruning something. Next to pulling weeds, I like to prune our trees and shrubs to make everything look nice. I'm off to check out the Japanese sickle.

  2. My favorite gardening tools are related to aquaponics. Very different from traditional gardening tools and supplies. You do have me very curious about that Japanese sickle. I love all things Japanese.

  3. Gardening is therapeutic, especially when you have the right tools! I very much enjoy working in my garden. I frequently need the privilege of slipping away from the world and taking the time to prayerfully think through things.

  4. Spending time with Mother Nature always makes me feel better, and yes, gardening meets the natural requirement for a setting in which to do just that. I have to zoom over to that Japanese sickle!

  5. I also love my garden. There's just something about cooperating with God to make things grow and then watching it happen that brings me peace and makes me more aware of my connection to my creator. I'll also have to check out the Japanese sickle
