Well, the question about what differentiates machinery from a tool has been lingering for quite some time. In gardening terms, I would like to set the record straight by saying that machinery is a complex gadget that has many processes running in it to achieve its objective. There are many gardening machineries that one can choose from based on the area of the lawn and the complexity of the task to be done. Typically, gardening machinery requires a source of power and hence eliminates mechanical work. Lawn mowers (the ride-on kinds) and tractors are best examples of gardening machineries that are of great use. Beside these, you also have grass trimmers that are either gas, electric or battery operated. The decision to go for a basic gardening tool or a machinery depends on the manual effort that can be put in (of course, the time involved is also considered), and the investment that can be made towards gardening.
The gardening tools and products manufacturing industry is a huge market and has many different firms involved.

For starters, this can be quite an arduous task than for a seasoned gardener. So, we thought we would take you through the top rated gardening products that would be of great use to you. I am going to list out the gardening tools that are most widely used and accepted. I will also delve on their uses and benefits.

Garden trowel is one of the important and basic tools which you have to buy while starting gardening or even for cultivating the land. This small metal made tool is a multipurpose one and aids you in shaping up your garden. Hand trowel can be used to break the earth, mix the fertilizers in the earth, removing the saplings and planting saplings to the soil. These can also be useful if your garden is attacked by weeds that slow down your plants’ growth.
When you select a hand trowel you have to look in to some facts. First you have to check of which metal is the trowel made, is it made of a metal which will not rust and also will dig through hard soil. The best choice will be stainless steel. You may also select aluminium since it is light compared to stainless steel. Along with this consider the material with which the handle is made of so that you can hold the trowel for long time. We have written a separate article on how to make use of the trowel and the model which can be useful for you.
Above we saw the necessity of having the basic gardening tools and here I will briefly discuss about the tool sets that can be helpful for you to achieve that task. If you are planning to start gardening or want to mend your garden it is always better to buy a tool set rather than buying each tool separately. This will help you to save money and also helps in storage as you will also get all the tools in one bag.
For the people who are just starting the gardening it will be little difficult to decide on the tools they need. Before deciding on the garden tool set you have to consider some factors. The first one is the type of the plants that you are planning to grow in your garden; vegetable plants or flowering plants. So once you are sure about that just think about the activities that you will have to perform. According to that you can start the search for the perfect gardening tool set. Just make sure that the tool kit you selected has all the essential tools for gardening.
Bolens, one of the pioneers in the gardening machinery has 3 types of lawn mowers. The company also makes other garden machineries like saws, snow throwers, and other products which will help you keep your garden and yard clean. In lawn mowers Bolens has ride-on mowers, push lawn mowers, and self-propelled mowers. In each type they offer more than 7 models so that the customer can choose according to their need.
In the ride-on type they have 7 models, in the push lawn mower type they have 18 models and in self-propelled type they have 11 models. The ride-on Bolens lawn mower or lawn tractors are used when you have a half-acre or more lawn and garden. These types of lawn mowers also comes with facilities like hauling, snow removal along with the basic functions. Push mowers (walk-behind mowers) can be availed as both electric and gas mowers. Self-propelled mowers are also walk behind mowers but can be used in yards with obstacles or hills.
Compared to the old traditional gas lawn mowers electric start lawn mowers pretty new in the market and have its own positives and negatives. In electric start lawn mowers there are two types; corded and cordless. The corded mowers will not be easy to handle since it limits your mobility and also you may have the fear of electrocution. In cordless models you may not get a mowing time as you expect. Also these will be more expensive than gas mowers.
However these disadvantages may be very few when you compare the benefits. You do not have to think about changing oil, spark plugs, fuel filters and gasoline. You just have to push a button and the mower is ready for you. The other benefits are that they are quieter and are better for the environment. Also in cordless mowers you can get the battery charged in 30 minutes (in most of the models and the time is an average time). Electric start mowers are a good choice for people who have trouble in pulling the cord.
Worx is a manufacturer of garden and lawn tools which was introduced in 2004. Worx lawn mower has variety of products but here I will just briefly mention about the lawn mower.

The robotic mower does everything itself. You just have to switch it on. When the battery is going to be drained it automatically goes to the charging deck gets the battery charged. All the other lawn mowers that Worx manufactures are electric start.
