6 Tools and Landscape Materials You'll Need for Landscaping Success

Consider adding these tools and landscape materials to your arsenal, and be sure to stop by Lehnhoff’s Supply for high-quality products and landscaping expertise.

Gardening can be an incredibly rewarding hobby or profession. Spending time outdoors, cultivating gorgeous plants, and beautifying landscapes can make any gardener feel great. Landscaping can be backbreaking work, but it doesn’t always need to be — using the right tools and materials for the job can make gardening a breeze! Consider adding these tools and landscape materials to your arsenal, and be sure to stop by Lehnhoff’s Supply for high-quality products and landscaping expertise.

Top Tools: A Heavy-Duty Shovel and A Trusty Hand Trowel

Whether you’re applying mulch or filling a raised bed, a reliable shovel is a crucial tool. Of course, some jobs require a bit more finesse than your average shovel can provide, so be sure to have a heavy-duty shovel on hand. A small hand trowel can help you repot plants, unearth spring bulbs, transplant seedlings, and tackle other smaller tasks in the garden.  Many gardeners find hand trowels immensely useful when working in small, tight areas.

Landscape Materials: High-Quality Mulch

Adding mulch is a great way to maintain moist, nutritious soil and guard against wild temperature fluctuations. Invest in high-quality shredded mulch for added nutrients and visually appealing earth tones throughout your landscape.

Landscape Materials: Screened Organic Topsoil

Fill materials are crucial for all kinds of landscaping projects, and screened organic topsoil is perfect for various gardening applications. The next time you need to level out a dip or build up a hill, reach for topsoil and other fill materials from Lehnhoff’s Supply!

Top Tools: Pruners

Like shovels, pruning instruments come in all shapes and sizes. Many home gardeners find that a smaller pair of bypass pruners can get most odd jobs done. However, homeowners with large trees or thick vines on their properties may find specialized tools like grass shears, hedge shears, or tree pruners useful.

Landscape Materials: Gravel and Natural Stone

Hardscape elements can be just as important as the plants you choose for your garden, especially if you decide to install a stone patio or walkway. Consider the colors, patterns, textures, and sizes of the natural stone products you choose very carefully. Gravel and natural stone can be used for driveways, walkways, retaining walls, and drainage!

Top Tools: A Spading Fork

While pitchforks are excellent at moving hay, straw, or compost, spading forks are stronger and more versatile. Spading forks typically have shorter, thicker tines than pitchforks do, and they can make quick work of digging through dense, heavy soil.
