Raised Garden Bed Tools

Men and toys--it's a cliche because it's true. But women like gadgets too. And women usually organize their tools--though men can point to tools blindfolded and know which is which. What toys do you need for a DIY raised garden bed? We've asked the advice of several men and women. Here's a short list, and several of them work for a raised bed garden kit:

  • Level for soil in the above ground garden
  • Sod stripper for clearing space for raised garden beds
  • Rented hand tamper for the soil
  • Spade
  • Pitchfork
  • Shovel
  • Rake
  • Trowel
  • Rototiller for the cleared soil and the initial soil you place in the bed
  • Sledgehammer
  • Drill and drill bits
  • A square
  • Mechanical pencil
  • Saw

Now you have all the tools you need for making raised bed garden plots. You need your tools...and fortunately, you love them. Just call you the Tool Time Girl.
