Create a compost pile

Steel Spading Fork



Section off an area of your yard to set up a compost pile. Anything that is biodegradable like leaves and apple cores can contribute to your pile. As you take care of it you’ll need to turn it every few days. This Ace 4 Tine Steel Spading Fork can help you effectively do that. Its tines break up even the toughest soil. The Poly D-grip (handle) gives you added leverage and control. Your finished compost can be used as natural fertilizer for your garden. It’s a good way to reduce landfill waste and keep harsh chemicals out of your garden.

Get Kids Involved

Kids Gardening Gloves


National Garden Month is the perfect time to introduce children to the joys of gardening. Gardening can teach them valuable lessons about responsibility, patience, and the importance of nature. Involve them in planting a kid-friendly garden, like a pizza garden with tomatoes and peppers for making homemade pizzas. They’ll love doing it all with kid-friendly gear like these Midwest Quality Gloves Nickelodeon Paw Patrol One Size Fits All Gardening Gloves. The knit wrist helps keep the dirt out and the jersey material makes them comfortable for finicky toddlers.

Use this Ace Poly Residential Wheelbarrow to help transport dirt. You can also use it for other items where needed around the neighborhood. Not only will this enhance the aesthetic appeal of your neighborhood, but it will also foster a connection with residents.
