Tools for the garden and farm are essential to carry out the tasks of their maintenance correctly.
Depending on the extension that we have to work and the work to be carried out, we will choose between some tools or others, both manual and mechanical.
Next, we will give a list of the main tools that I use in my garden and garden. There are many more, although the following are essential for the beginner.

9- Watering Can
To water seedbeds and other plants where the installed irrigation system does not reach or requires specific irrigation. There are showers of different capacities 3L, 5L, 8L, 12L, etc. Although it is not advisable to carry showers of more than 8 liters capacity, our arms will appreciate it.
The stakes are of great help for climbing plants and weak stems that need support to grow in height.
Gloves are necessary to protect our hands and forearms clean and well-cared for. There are different materials adapted for other activities.
12- Boxes, Baskets, and other Containers

Other containers such as baskets will come in handy for making a slurry, storing rainwater, transporting soil, etc.
13- Garden Tiller/ Rototiller/ Mechanical Mule

14- Brush Cutter
The brush cutter is essential to keep weeds at bay. It is also a very versatile tool since you can combine its main body with multiple discs, each of them suitable against different types of weeds.

The water pump is handy to transfer water from one place to another. For those of you who follow me, you know that I went from having an urban garden with access to water through the opening of a tap to a rustic farm with a ditch. Therefore, it was essential for me to use the motor pump to transfer the ditch to the water tanks in the latter case. By not having water constantly and continuously, storing the water in tanks for scarcity was essential.
Hedge trimmers, shredders, hoses, pots, baskets, cultivation tables, seedbeds, wheelbarrows, backpacks, irrigation kits, composters, etc.
