Gielow's Lawn & Garden
Two of the best machines I've ever owned came from Gielow's. My Simplicity lawn tractor and my Toro snow machine are both over 20 years old & I beat the tar out of them.I have no affiliation with Gielow's other than as a customer.Here's what happened just today: I needed a new starter for the old Simplicity. I brought the old part in to be replaced, and Mr. Geilow (the patriarch of this family run business) took one look and said I didn't need the expensive new part. "It just needs a new sprocket." Mr, Gielow grabbed the starter, disappeared for 5 mins, and came back out with the new sprocket installed! "$8.02" is what he said. I about fell over. He could have easily charged me well over $100 and just replaced the whole unit.This is a fine family run business with an "old School" hardware store feel to it.Gielow's Lawn & Garden is a gem in our neighborhood.

Tips & Advices
Outdoor watering cans often are specifically from materials that are more resistant to weather variables--i.e., with a protective coating that prevents moisture corrosion, or prevents the handle from getting extremely hot in direct sunlight. Indoor watering cans are usually made of lightweight plastic, although they can be made from all sorts of other material, from stainless steel to porcelain. They often fill a more ornamental function, while the outdoor watering cans are for ongoing hard work.
A trowel is much smaller than a spade--it has a short handle and is meant to be used at knee-height or even closer range to the plants and soil. A spade is a type of shovel with a long handle and a sharp metal blade--usually much flatter than a normal shovel.
A pick mattock has at its head an adze and a pick, for breaking up hard-packed soil and debris. The cutter mattock has an axe blade on one side of the head and an adze on the other. It’ s better for digging up and cutting through roots.
The best type of shovel for gardening is a garden spade, ideally used in conjunction with a hand trowel.
The essential supplies for gardening are mostly basic, inexpensive non-motor tools. Essential tools consist of a sturdy pair of scissors, a trowel, a pair of pruning shears, at least one shovel, and a hand fork or a hoe. Also, a gardener must have a functioning hose—hopefully one with an adjustable sprayer nozzle. There are also kneeling pads for gardeners, which can help prevent knee and back strain If you are going to compost, you’ll need a compost bin. And to protect all your items from rain, make sure you have some sort of shed or enclosure. Finally, you should have a pair or two of heavy-duty gardening gloves.
