I have made the most common mistake that any novice landscaper can make:
I assumed that ALL TOOLS ARE CREATED EQUAL
I went to that big green warehouse and picked up some basic gardening tools (at the cheaper end of the price scale) and used them for all of 15 min before the handle of the first shovel snapped off and blade to the second bent permanently out of shape.
Now I need a new set. I am happy to shell out some coin but need them to last years not minutes. Can anyone give me an idea where to go and what to buy (i.e. good brands).
I am looking for hand tools (long & short handle shovel, mattock, wheelbarrow, and edger) and some basic electrics (drill, jig saw, hedge trimmer and whipper snipper).
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
