How to maintain and care for your Garden Tools

 

It is very important to take proper care of your garden tool so that it continues to perform at its peak. Do not leave your tool outside, always store it away after use in a dry environment. Even in dry weather conditions your tools, if left outside, are exposed to moisture from wet grass and dew.

Cleaning and drying your garden tools will keep them in good working order. Always remove all of the soil from your digging tools after each use by washing the dirt off.

Never put your tools away wet. Allow them to dry completely before storing to prevent rusting and handle rot. For all wood handled tools apply a light coating of boiled linseed oil to help prevent the wood from drying out and cracking. If a wooden handle is very dirty, remove as much of the soil as possible with a stiff brush. If you need to use water, gently wet the handle with a damp cloth, making sure that you don’t soak the wood, as this may cause the grain to lift and the handle to swell.

Thoroughly clean any tools which have been used for chemical applications. Fertilisers and other chemicals will rapidly corrode any metal.

  • Connect the end of the soaker hose that already has a hose connector attached to your tap
  • Place your soaker hose on or under the surface of the soil at a recommended depth of 15-20cm
  • This soaker hose has been designed to work at low water pressure only. Open your tap quarter to half a turn only. The water will start to seep out slowly, which is perfect for getting direct to the roots
  • If you require longer length you can connect another soaker hose. Use a maximum of 2 soaker hoses together at anyone time to enjoy optimum performance. Simply unscrew the end cap from the first hose, unscrew the male end from the 2nd hose and then attach these two ends together to create the connection. See diagram below:
