Fall Garden Chores Save Money in Long Run
This is a good time to get your garden in order. Here’s a tip that can save you money in the long run:
Keep your garden tools clean and sharp. Some plant diseases can be spread on tools.
Hose soil off of garden tools before moving to another area of the landscape. Dry them well before storing.
Sterilize pruning tools after each and every cut if there is any chance the plant is infected with a disease. Use an antibacterial spry and wipe it dry.
A dull saw is much more dangerous than sharp one. When the saw is sharp, gentle pressure is all it takes to make a clean cut. If it is dull, force is required and serious injury can occur if it slips. Sharp tools make for clean wounds which heal quickly.
Take care of your tools, they will last longer and so will you and your plants!
