Gardening is fun, but it can also be frustrating, even when you have the right tools for the job. But not to worry, we’re here to show you that there are some handy gadgets out there to help make your gardening easier and more enjoyable. And these are some of the best-selling gardening products on Amazon, so customers must be coming back for good reason! Well, we’ve sifted through these best-sellers to present our 5 recommended products. Okay, first up.
Solatec Solar Fountain
If you’ve ever considered setting up a water feature in your garden, but been put off by the idea of setting up a pump and power supply, then check this out! This mini-fountain is ideal for bird baths and ponds, and doesn’t require a power supply to spray water. Instead, it uses solar energy from above. You simply put this fountain in water, and enjoy. It’s got a subtle, discreet design too.
The Soil Tester
Sonkir Soil pH Meter
Growing things in our gardens isn’t always as easy as we might like. Too much water or sunlight — or, conversely, not enough of either — can prevent certain plants from properly growing or blooming. A tool like a soil tester, however, can help you manage the essentials. This gadget allows you to test the soil moisture, pH value and sunlight exposure level of a plant to ensure it’s getting the right amount of everything it needs. If you’re serious about your gardening game, then you might want to give this a whirl.
Gorilla Carts Poly Garden Dump Cart
A wheelbarrow does the job, sure, but a cart like this is much more ergonomic, user-friendly and kinder to those with physical limitations. Capable of pulling up to 600 pounds, this four-wheeled cart has a convenient towing arm, and can be completely tipped up on its end to empty its contents. It's more versatile and maneuverable when compared to a conventional wheelbarrow, with four chunky 10-inch tires that allow you to tackle rough terrain with excellent stability.
The Compost Tumbler
FCMP Outdoor Tumbling Composter
If you’ve ever tried to maintain a compost pile, you know it can be hard work. But with this compost tumbler, you can keep everything mixed and aerated, without the backache. This compost tumbler is dual chambered, allowing you to maintain a flow of compost and fresh clippings. The chambers aerate the compost using in-built fins to break up clumps, and holes in its body allow oxygen to flow through. This thing looks pretty cool, too.
Before we reveal our final pick, here are a few other best selling products that you might want to consider:
Chapin Garden Sprayer
Scotts Wizz Hand-Held Spreader
Gorilla Grip Original Premium Thick Kneeling Pad
The Rolling Seat
Pure Garden Garden Cart Rolling Scooter
Shuffling around on your butt or knees when tending to plants and soil can be tiresome, and that’s why this rolling scooter from Pure Garden is a gamechanger. And its premise is simple and straightforward: it’s a seat with wheels. This gadget is particularly great for those who struggle with standing and kneeling, as it allows gardeners to comfortably sit and tend to their garden, and then roll onto their next task. This rolling scooter will make pretty much anyone’s gardening routines easier.
So which best-selling garden gadget should you choose? Well, some of these are a little more for the hardcore gardener, like the compost tumbler and soil tester. However, the dump cart and the rolling scooter are two products that will enhance most people’s gardening experiences, and are more likely to be used every time you step outside and slip on your gardening gloves.
