Maintaining Garden Tools

I always like things clean, organized, and in good working condition - it's a standard I try to impress upon everyone who works for me, especially when it comes to valuable tools.

If you're an avid gardener, you know sharp pruning tools not only make chores easier to complete, but they also make cleaner cuts, which allow plants to heal faster. Making clean cuts also exposes them to less damage from diseases, insects, fungi, and weather extremes. My gardeners and outdoor grounds crew clean, sharpen, and condition their pruners, snips, and shears every few days. The process only takes a few minutes, and it keeps these gardening implements in proper working order.
