In addition to being sturdy, these Real Steel garden markers look incredibly elegant. They will look right at home in traditional gardens, raised beds or even containers.

These garden markers are laser cut into steel and create an incredibly beautiful and elegant look for any garden setting. With 40 different vegetable and herb markers available, you can create a set to match any layout or garden method. In addition, at 11 inches tall and 6 inches wide at the marking point, they really stand out!

What we love most about these garden marker signs are their strength, durability and good looks. And talk about fun, they even have special marker signs for “Weeds”, “I Don’t Know” and “Oops”.

The “I Don’t Know” & “Oops” markers are perfect for all of those random seeds and plants that you have no idea where or when you planted. And let’s face it, we all end up with those plants somewhere in our garden every year!

#4 – Saker Mini Chain Saw – 6 Christmas Gift Ideas For Gardeners This Year

Speaking of cutting big limbs with ease, the Saker mini chain saw is definitely one of the favorite new tools on our farm! So much so, that we will actually be featuring this great little battery powered chainsaw in an upcoming article on best electric gardening tools to own.

The Saker mini chainsaw is easy to operate and control. In fact you only need to use one hand when cutting. Mary loves it for using all over the farm. She simply doesn’t want to handle a bulky, heavy chainsaw. But with the Saker, she can cut down even large limbs and small trees with little effort!

Not only is the mini chain saw powerful, it’s also lightweight. In addition, it can fit into tight spaces big cutters and chainsaws can’t!

I love it because it eliminates me having to drag out and start the big gas chainsaw for small jobs. It has surprising cutting power for such a lightweight tool. Even better, the 20 Volt battery lasts more than long enough for small and big jobs alike.

Last but not least, it also happens to be great for getting into tight areas to make cuts without trying to use a heavy, gas powered chainsaw. Product Link : Saker Mini Electric Chain Saw
