Clean Your Tools After Every Use

By cleaning your gardening tools after every use, not only will they be nice and clean for your next trip to the garden, but you'll help to ensure they don't rust from chemicals, that they are sterile, and that they will last longer from the care.

Store Your Tools in a Dry, Protected Area

In order to prevent rusting, ensure your gardening tools are in a safe, dry place. It's a good idea to hang your gardening tools on the wall, too. This allows them to thoroughly dry out after you are done cleaning them, and it's easy to grab them and find them the next go around.

Clean and Oil Your Pruning Shears Regularly

Oiling your pruning shears helps to keep them not only looking good, but protected from the elements. This will prolong their longevity and use, prevent rust from sap build-up, and ensure the blades stay sharp and ready for their next job.

Sharpen Your Gardening Tools Annually

By keeping your gardening tools sharp, you'll ensure that when you need them to prune or trim a bush, hedge, or tree, you can make nice, clean cuts easily. Otherwise, you may find yourself working hard to prune and the cuts are uneven and unsightly, which is not good for the tree or bush either.
