Some of our favorite lawn care and gardening tools


Some of our favorite lawn care and gardening tools Linda's Favorite #1 - Tubtrug
These flexible, lightweight polyethylene tubs are washable, bendable, crushable, and nearly indestructible. The tub holds 11 gallons and is great for collecting weeds, carrying hand tools and supplies out to the garden and more. Sprigs & Twigs uses these tubs all season!

Linda's Favorite #2 - Multi-Use Hori Hori Knife
This versatile tool is ideal for weeding, transplanting and dividing perennials. The 7" stainless steel blade of this hori hori knife is tapered to a point and serrated on one side for slicing through sod and tough roots. The Sprigs & Twigs landscape team uses this knife on every job!

Linda's Favorite #3 - Florian Ratchet-Cut Pruners
Florian's unique ratcheting mechanism lets you cut through stems and branches up to 3/4" diameter in a series of short, easy strokes. The fiberglass-reinforced nylon body is surprisingly lightweight, keeping your hand from tiring. The cutting blades are high carbon steel with a Teflon coating to resist sap buildup.
