The fastest, easiest way to enhance your gardening capabilities is to get an electric cultivator.
For jobs such as mixing soil, aerating, removing weeds and cultivating between rows, nothing will help you get the job done faster than an electric tiller.
What use to take hours with a shovel or spade, can now be accomplished in a matter of minutes.
The only question to ask is: Corded or Cordless?
All you'll need to get a corded electric cultivator going is a household power outlet and an extension cord. You just plug it and go. You won't be able to break ground for planting a new garden, but these are perfect for aeration and weeding.
A great feature of corded cultivators is the adjustable tilling width. With several inches of variation, you can quickly and easily take on different-sized jobs with the same tool.
If you'll need to operate the cultivator more than 100 feet from an electrical source, go with a cordless, battery-powered model instead.
