Once you've set your sights on performing your gardening work in your yard, you'll be faced with a new set of challenges that you likely didn't need to deal with when working with potted plants. However, that doesn't mean these challenges can't be overcome with the right tools, and this week, the experts from our online plant nursery in Sydney, That Plant Shop, will be discussing the merits of a garden fork and the criteria for selecting the right one for the job. \nA garden fork is a key piece of equipment for anyone performing work in dense soil. Thanks to the unique forked design, these tools are able to pierce and move dense soil with ease, especially when compared to a spade. However, garden forks can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so it's important you select the right one for your garden. If a fork has a slight curve to the tines, it can be used to effectively turn compost piles or scoop mulch, whereas straight tines are excellent for digging into rocky, compacted, or clay-filled soil.\nNo matter what garden plants online in Sydney you may have purchased, a garden fork is always a useful tool for managing your workspace.
