Planting a field of tulips has never been so easy thanks to Lowe’s 3-in hand tool, which works a treat to remove much of the digging work for you. To use it, all you have to do is push it firmly where you want your tulip to go. This will help capture the dirt as you remove it from the ground. While it may take a bit of elbow grease, it helps to make the job much easier. Of course, you may want to plan where you want your tulips to go; that way, you’re not creating holes at random. As a result, you’ll have plenty of holes ready for your tulip planting session — just as you would if you dug them by hand. In fact, you could even try incorporating some tulip companion plants if you’re feeling adventurous.

When you’re planting your tulips, there are a few things that you should consider. If you want them to thrive, opt to make your holes in an area that receives plenty of sunlight during the months of fall. Following both steps should help you create the thriving tulip field of your dreams. However, you don’t only have to plant tulips — you could also try a wide variety of other flowering bulbs too, such as lilies and snowdrops. Ultimately, the choice is yours.

As it turns out, the design of the hand tool helps to remove a large amount of soil all at once, helping you save time that would otherwise be spent digging. This makes it highly convenient to plant multiple flowers or plants at once. However, it may not be suitable if you have to dig a very deep hole. Naturally, this is something to keep in mind, depending on what you decide to plant. Don’t worry — it should be sufficient for tulips.

Likewise, it may also be challenging to use this tool if the ground is rock solid. Instead, waiting until the ground feels a little softer may be best. Of course, like with any tool, practice makes perfect. It could very well take a few tries for you to get into the habit of using the tool correctly. However, once you master it, it should be plain sailing from there, allowing you to dig grass much easier to plant your tulips.
