Garden Tool Maintenance: Key Tips for Long Life

Vzdrževanje Vrtnih Orodij: Ključni Nasveti za Dolgo Življenjsko Dobo

Gardening tools are essential for any gardener, whether a professional or a hobbyist. Proper maintenance of tools not only extends their life, but also ensures their efficiency and safety at work. We share with you some key tips for maintaining your garden tools.

Regular Cleaning

Clean the tool thoroughly after each use. Remove all soil, sand and plant debris. If dirt or moisture remains on the tool, it can cause rusting or other damage. Use water and a mild detergent to clean stubborn dirt.

Sharpening the Blade

The blades of tools such as shears, shovels and axes must always be well sharpened. Dull blades are not only ineffective, but can also increase the risk of injury. Check and sharpen the blades regularly to ensure a clean and precise cut.

Prevention of Rust

To prevent rusting, store tools in a dry place. After use and cleaning, dry the tool and apply a thin layer of oil to prevent corrosion. You can also use special anti-rust sprays available at garden supply stores.

Regular Inspections and Repairs

Regularly check the condition of the handles and other parts of the tool. Replace damaged or worn parts in a timely manner. If tool handles become flaky or cracked, sand them down or replace them, as they can cause blisters or other damage.

Correct Storage

Store tools in a dry and sheltered area, such as a shed or garage. Avoid storing tools on the floor where they are more exposed to moisture. If possible, hang tools to prevent contact with moisture and soil.

Care for Battery and Power Tools

For battery and power tools, make sure the batteries are properly charged and stored. Avoid extreme temperatures as these can damage the batteries. Also check the electrical cables and connectors regularly.

Maintaining garden tools takes some time and effort, but it’s an investment that pays off in the form of longer tool life and more efficient gardening. By following these simple tips, you’ll keep your tools in good condition and ready to work in the garden all year round.
