10 of the Prettiest Garden Tools Around

It’s officially spring and I’ve set forth my goals for upgrading our home’s exterior. Many of these goals involve gardening and I’m convinced that in order to have a pretty garden, I need pretty gardening tools. Makes sense, right? We all know that your food tastes better on pretty dishes, so of course flowers and shrubs will look better when tended by beautiful tools.

To that end, I’ve found 10 of the prettiest gardening tools around. And I’m including my garden inspiration to get us started thinking about what these tools will help us accomplish. (It will be totally doable with the right pruning shears…)
