Felco 7 Pruner I’ve had the same pair of Felco 7 Pruners on my hip since 1992.  They’re light weight, built like a tank and easy to sharpen. Felco 7’s have a rotating handle which is great if you use them all day.  If you want a simpler design go with Felco 2 Pruners.

DMT FFC Diafold Diamond Flat Folding File Coarse I use this file almost daily to keep my pruners sharp. The small size of this file makes it easy to touch up the edge of your pruners.


Leather Holster for Pruning Shears Keep your pruners on your hip and ready to go.



Felco 600 Pruning Saw I keep this handy little pruning saw in my back pocket when pruning. It takes the place of loppers for most jobs.


Felco 6003 Folding Miracle Saw Replacement Blade for F-600 Keep a spare blade in the truck or garage in case you dull the old one.


Lesche Edging Tool I bought this edging tool over 10 years ago and use it a lot and it still looks like new.  I talk about an edging tool made by a company called WW Manufacturing in my videos.  This edging tool looks identical to the one I have.



Garden Weasel Cultivator Long Handle My go to tool for turning mulch.
