I recently purchased a home that came with a few raised gardens. Since I love to cook and a majority of our grocery shopping each week is done in the produce aisles, I decided to try my hand at a little gardening. It is actually much more challenging and nuanced than I expected, but there is no better feeling than the first time you get to cook with something you grew yourself in the backyard. I am now hooked on gardening and landscaping and recently decided to snoop around for some garden tools and gadgets that may make the work a little easier.
Here are some of the more interesting and cool lawn and garden tools and gadgets and accessories I have dug up in my web travels. As with all of my gadget posts, I will be updating this post as I stumble on more items.

Roots always seem to get in the way of digging, whether you expect them or not. Once you switch to the Root Slayer you might not even notice them most of the time. The Root Slayer is really a multi-purpose shovel that can eliminate the need for other tools, such as hatchets, pry-bars, and saws, when simply digging around the home. If you’ve ever hit roots while trying to plant a perennial, or been stymied by roots when trying to dig up a shrub, or tried to divide hostas with a spade only to have them slide away from your shovel, you’ll know what we’re talking about. You can use the Root Slayer as your go-to shovel. You can also use it to replace your nursery spade. Think of it as a shovel, root hatchet, and root saw all in one tool.
