You may also find ornamental trees, bushes and shrubs (large plants that may also grow flowers). Check the pictures :)

Some people have a wooden FENCE around their garden,but we can also make a more natural border with a HEDGE.

If you have a hedge, you'll also need SHEARS to trim and shape the hedge. SECATEURS are also useful for cutting plant stems.

How do SHEARS look like? They are like very large scissors. Look at the pic: http://t.co/OqGex1Rv

How about SECATEURS? They look like scissors, too, but they have have short handles and are operated with one hand. http://t.co/1m9DoCUF

Gardeners also use FORK which is useful for digging up the earth and SPADE, which is good for lifting up quantities of earth.

Meanwhile, a HOE is good for scraping lines in the earth, because it's sharp. http://t.co/4r6YIz7E
