Gardening Tips (V)

If you find handles of tools, mowers and shears
uncomfortable to hold try buying a foam bicycle
handlebar grip. Slip the grips over the tool handles,
using washing up liquid or Vaseline if it proves
difficult. If the handle in question is continuous try
slitting the grip horizontally to allow it to be slipped
over the handle. Pipe insulating foam may also work.

Always buy strong, good quality tools and look after
them well. If you can afford it buy stainless steel as
they will last a lifetime and are easier to clean. When
choosing tools pick them up and try out for
balance and weight.
