The passion of gardening

Gardening is one of the hottest hobbies in the recent historical period, because it combines many positive qualities without having any contraindications of any kind; first of all, as we garden enthusiasts who write it, gardening how to operate with and for nature is something that we have always carried within us, as man was born and raised in nature, in the sense that our evolution as an animal species it has always had nature as its life partner, from which we have drawn food, clothing, protection, tools for all uses and so on and so forth. All this, despite the fact that society is taking us away from natural things, is written in our genes and every time it can jump out: walks in the woods or by the sea always make us happy, a picnic in the open air is always a moment of joy, sitting on the balcony of the house even without doing anything still gives us a hint of serenity, have you ever wondered why? Well, because these are moments in which we get back in contact with nature, in which something moves inside us and therefore this causes us serenity. Among its many advantages, the hobby of gardening has such enormous success especially for this feature.

The right tool


The unwary, the old saying went, never went anywhere alone. These wise words could be interpreted in many ways and applied to the most varied situations, but wanting to do this with gardening we could say that this hobby is open to everyone, but we must not be “disarmed” and pretend to do some gardening. First of all, it takes passion, in the sense that it must be liked, because constant physical and mental commitment is required, and the thing without passion would soon become heavy. Then a minimum of technique and knowledge is needed, because without even knowing how to water and how much, the garden will hardly come up or stay up in a certain way. Third aspect, equally important: the equipment; nothing in the world, without the right gadget, can be done right, and this obviously also applies to gardening. Luckily for all of us enthusiasts, satisfying our “green thumb” from the point of view of the material to use is simple: scissors, sledgehammer, wheelbarrow, spade and shovel are the basic means with which our grandparents worked the land and are the same means with which we can now take care of the home garden.

The wheelbarrow

In the previous list, which we could define as “grandfather’s closet”, each tool has its own specific article on our site, to analyze a little of its history, applications, construction and to orientate yourself a little in the market. Perhaps the one of today was missing, the wheelbarrow: this nice tool is very important in a garden (but not only, ask the laborers who are renovating the apartment in your neighborhood) because it allows you to easily transport tools or a series of heavy tools. and the dimensions are by no means negligible. Its construction is relatively simple, because all you need is a “tank” made of a fairly resistant metal material, to which a pair of wheels in the front and two handles in the back are connected (in fact, it is carried by pushing it, not pulling it) , so that there is a favorable leverage effect with which it is possible to lift and transport even for not minimum distances (the wheel helps a lot in this case) masses that otherwise few people could carry, and in any case with much less physical effort. Often the wheelbarrow is also used as a garbage pail to accumulate weeds, dry branches, leaves and all pruning residues; after filling everything up, you can go to the garbage bins and get rid of it. dry branches, leaves and all pruning residues; after filling everything up, you can go to the garbage bins and get rid of it. dry branches, leaves and all pruning residues; after filling everything up, you can go to the garbage bins and get rid of it.

Materials and prices

With the technology and the modern spirit of consumerism, on the market there are a very large number of variants of wheelbarrows, for all needs, be they economic, aesthetic, practical and so on. For example, it is clear that a wheelbarrow that an enthusiast must use in their backyard to transport some accumulation of weeds and little else will not be the same as a professional pruner or splitter to transport large piles of wood. In these two cases, quite the opposite of each other but useful to understand, not only must the material of the wheelbarrow change, which therefore must be more resistant, but the entire design and construction of the wheelbarrow itself must change. In fact, the wheel must be of an appropriate material and in a slightly different position, because heavy loads will need more and more effective leverage to be lifted without too much effort. Often the most professional wheelbarrows are also equipped with two convenient solutions such as stabilizers and brakes: the former are necessary to prevent the wheelbarrow from tilting sideways and disperse a heavy load, while the latter are essential for the safety of those carrying large weight. and those who are close to him.
