Garden tools care

Garden tools care:

It is important to take care of garden tools, to prevent them from deteriorating over time, but also to avoid transmitting any disease from plant to plant. As for scissors, nippers, cutters, it is important that they are always well sharpened, otherwise they can make irregular and torn cuts, which favor the subsequent development of fungal diseases; every time we prune our plants remember to treat the cutting tools with denatured alcohol, in order to disinfect them in a precise and safe way. Rakes and spades must always be kept in good condition, cleaning them after use and removing any residues of earth or leaves. The metal must be kept clean; moreover we always check that the teeth of the rake are well straight, and the edge of the spade well linear, otherwise we risk not being able to use them at best. If we have a chainsaw or a lawnmower, we remind you that these tools are also sharpened; the poorly sharpened chainsaw produces irregular and jagged cuts, the wood in these points tends to be attacked by very harmful rots. The mower is not very sharp instead of cutting the grass tears it, leading to a ruined and thinned turf over time. Even small tools need to be periodically overhauled, cleaned and possibly sharpened, such as small pallets, hoes, small rakes, so that they perform their functions precisely. Hoes and weeders should always be cleaned after use, it may even be enough water; every 3-4 years is also good to make them sharpen, so that they sink into the ground in a clean and precise way.
