Gardening Essentials – by Catherine Dunwoody
Spending time in your own garden, whether it’s a big chunk of the backyard or a few planters on the deck, is straight-up good for the soul. Home Depot will have you digging in the dirt in no time with these must-haves.
Park Royal’s own Home Depot is rather unique to the brand. Less big box and more boutique, grab a ‘blossoming rose’ tea latte (très à propos!), from the Starbucks next door, then sip and stroll the outdoors department for garden goodies like these.
• Fiskars Aluminum Weeder
Tackle those pesky weeds with this one piece, lightweight yet sturdy garden tool. Bonus: The grip’s shape encourages a neutral wrist position which helps alleviate fatigue.
• Garden Caddy and Kneeler Cushion Set
Multiple pockets to keep all your tools organized plus the pad protects your knees whether you’re on gravel or soil.
• Digz Women’s Gardening Gloves
Some gloves are a bit flimsy, and thorny spiky plant bits can poke right through. Yowch! These however have leather palms, knuckle protection and you can throw them in the washing machine.
