How To Use A Round Head Shovel In The Garden

Gardeners know that the right tool, used in the right way, can ensure success on every task. We treasure our tools like a chef treasures his/her knives. Round point shovel uses extend past digging to scooping and are useful in transplanting, trenching, moving compost or mulch and many more applications. Taking care of the tool will extend its life when its edges are kept sharp and the shovel clean and dry. Rounded shovels usually have a beveled edge to help penetrate tough soil situations. They may also have a point to push into soil. The edges are curved to facilitate scooping. Handles are the height at which most people stand and can be ergonomically angled. Grips are often cushioned to prevent blisters. These specialized tools are widely available at any big box store or garden center. It is important to choose one which will last. Wooden handled tools often break on big jobs. The attachment of the scoop to the handle should be welded securely. Since it is one of the most popular tools, using round point shovels for many tasks makes it a work horse of the garden. Good construction and sturdy fabrication will make these tasks a little lighter. What is a Round Point Shovel Used For? Rounded shovels are a bit like a Ginsu knife. They may not slice, dice and julienne, but they can cut, dig, scoop, lift and chop through hard soil. These are invaluable tools for any gardener. Taking care of the tool is essential to its long life. Always rinse the shovel and allow it to air dry before putting it away. This prevents rust that will destroy the metal over time. Every spring, bring out the shovel and use a whetstone or hand held file to sharpen the edge. That will make breaking through tough soil much easier. Keep handles dry if they’re wooden, and occasionally sand them to remove any splinters. Rub with linseed oil to protect the wood.

Choosing Shovels For Gardens: What Shovel Do You Need For Gardening

The sheer variety of shovels available in gardening and hardware stores can be confusing. Fortunately, most garden shovels fall into a few common categories, each intended to be used for specific garden tasks. If you’ve ever wondered “what shovel do you need for gardening,” this article will help answer your question. Before learning about the common types of garden shovels, it is helpful to know the parts of a shovel. From top to bottom, you will find the grip, then the handle, which varies in length, with longer handles better suited to digging deep holes and shorter handles better suited to precise tasks. Next is the collar, where the blade is fastened to the handle. At the bottom is the blade, typically made of metal or, in some cases, plastic. The flat portion at the top of the blade is called the step. The step allows you to use your foot and body weight to push the shovel into the soil, which is much easier than using just your arms! The blade and tip, also called the point, come in different shapes depending on the type of shovel.
