Yard Tools Ready!!

February 21, 2013

pink yard tools

Oh yes, the whole idea behind being an UNgardener is to make yard work FUN!  And nothing says fun to me like my PINK YARD TOOLS!!!  My family got these for me last year for my birthday and I just love going outside with them.  Currently I keep them in a big beer bucket my husband and I got on vacation a few years ago.  The bucket also makes me happy remembering a trip.  But, this year we intend to make a cork board in the shed for me to hang them on.  I did have to stop using the carrying case because it took too long to get anything out and put it away.  Efficiency is key!

If you like this tool set too you can find it on Amazon.  Included in the 18 Piece Garden Tool Set – Pink Blow Molded Carrying Case, 8.5″ Pruning Shears, 8.5″ Anvil Pruning Shears, Knee Pad, Trowel, Narrow Trowel, Rake, Pitch, Fork, Weeder, Bulb Planter, Edging Knife, Hose Nozzle, Metal Hose Nozzle, “Y” Hose Coupler w/ Swivel, 0.5″ Hose Connector, 0.5″ Waterstop Hose Connector, 3 – .75″ Tap Adaptors.

Now, if you have tools that are a few years old, you probably need to do some basic maintenance on them.  For that you’ll need: WD40, a sharpening file, steel wool, and shellac.

There are three things you’ll be doing to maintain your tools.

1) Sharpening – For this, take your tools that have tapered edges and file them with the sharpening file.  Only file the back side of a shovel, and only file the tapered edges on clippers.

2) Cleaning – Take the steel wool and WD40 and clean all silver surfaces.  This will help to protect against rust damage and keep the tools looking nice.

3) Polishing – For all wooden handles, like on a shovel, rub a bit of shellac on it to keep it in good sturdy condition.
