Garden Hazards to Look Out For

Gardening is a delightful hobby however there are a few Garden Hazards any gardener should take heed of to avoid injury:

  • Thorns and spikes on plants that could damage eyes and tender feet.
  • Poisonous plant sap, flowers and berries.
  • Exposed tree roots that cone could trip over.
  • Chipped or uneven pavers.
  • The sharp top ends of tree stakes. The best is to cover them with a cork.
  • Unprotected bodies of water like bird baths, ponds and water features for small children.
  • Slippery paving and mossy soil in shaded areas.
  • Gardening tools (especially hard rakes) that have not been packed away are particularly hazardous.
