Accessories help create a garden that’s easy to work and play in. Extras like planter caddies and rockers make the workload easy. The fact that they look good, too, is a bonus.
Our No. 1 pick for a must-have accessory is a garden rocker, like the Vertex Seat. Place it in your garden bed, sit down and lean forward to get closer to the plants. No more stooping to pull up weeds. It moves easily for access to your flowers and veggies.

2. Planter caddies. Love the look of terra cotta and stone planters filled with hibiscus, palms and other tropical plants? Beautiful as they are, they can be heavy, and one must consider the risk of the pot draining onto your deck or patio. Save your back and your deck by using planter caddies underneath the pots and enjoy the ease of moving the containers from sunlight to shade.
3. A new nozzle. Upgrade your watering game with a new watering wand or nozzle for your garden hose. Look for styles that will reach both hanging baskets and the shrubs at the back of the border. Be sure your choice has spray adjustments from gentle mist to strategic blast.
