The easiest way to enhance your gardening capabilities is to get a cultivator.
For jobs such as aerating, weeding, and cultivating between rows, nothing will help you get the job done faster than an electric cultivator.
What once took hours with a shovel can now be accomplished in a matter of minutes.
With most cultivators, you'll have a wide range of attachments that you can use to make improving your garden soil even easier. However, there's one big question for you to consider when you're shopping for an electric cultivator:
Do you want to go corded or cordless?
All you need to get a corded electric cultivator going is a household power outlet and an extension cord. Using a corded cultivator is as simple as performing a quick maintenance check, plugging it in, and pushing it along your garden rows.
You won't be able to break ground for planting a new garden, but you will be able to aerate and weed your garden as long as you're able to stand.
A handy feature of corded cultivators is theirs adjustable tilling width. With several inches of variation, you can quickly and easily take on different-sized jobs with one convenient tool.
If you plan on spending more than 45 minutes at a time working on the quality of your garden soil, a corded model is the right choice for you.
Cordless cultivators were designed to be easy-to-use tools that allow gardeners to work without being tethered to a power source. All you need to do is charge a battery and throw it into the cultivator, and you can take on gardening tasks for about 45 minutes.
Cordless units have benefits that any small-scale gardener can enjoy:
For the best performance, look for a model that uses a lithium-ion battery. These maintain consistent power throughout the entire charge.
If you'll need to operate the cultivator more than 100 feet from an electrical source, a cordless, battery-powered model is an excellent choice
