Why does Walmart have a garden section? There is no official Walmart garden department, but there are many small garden supply stores in and around Walmart. These are independent small shops that have the variety of garden tools, soil mix, planting containers, and gardening accessories that Walmart does not carry. I know this might sound like a joke, but these small garden supply shops are convenient. They are also generally quite cheap compared to other garden supply stores.
I will try to give you a few examples of what I mean. We live in an area where it gets really cold in the winter. Our local Wal-Mart has a very large garden section with spades, forks, rakes, and shovels for the winter. The summer season offers different supplies. We have a local nursery that sells pots, planters, flower pots, and even planters without a stake. There are some gardening tools that you cannot find at any other place.
Have you ever noticed that the gardening tools at your local home improvement stores do not match your gardening tools? This can be embarrassing when you buy a bunch of gardening supplies and realize that they are not the ones you were looking for. This happens all too often. My husband was looking for some cordless gardening tools for a big upcoming garden. It did not matter which brand he chose, the tools were all over the place and he was stuck with them for months.
What I realized is that Walmart has a garden section specifically for gardening. The first thing I noticed when going through a garden section is all the gardening tools you can get. This may seem like an exaggeration, but I am pretty sure that you can walk into any garden supply store and see all kinds of gardening tools. Some of them might be basic gardening tools, but most are pretty high tech. If you are like me and you garden for a living, then you know just how much each tool can mean in a garden setting.
It wasn’t until I went to my local Wal-Mart garden center that I really understood what a garden section meant. When you are in the garden section and everything is labeled for your specific gardening need, it makes it so much easier. There are buckets, hoes, spades, shovels, etc. That is a lot of gardening tools in one location. Also, you can go up and down the aisles to look at the different supplies. You don’t have to move from one aisle to another, you can simply move from aisle to aisle.
When I was in the market for garden supplies, I found a great resource online. Instead of moving back and forth to the garden center section to look for gardening tools, I found a website that had everything I needed at my fingertips. It had a wonderful section dedicated specifically to gardening. The website had all of my gardening tools and supplies laid out in easy to understand categories that made finding the right supplies easy. It also had a list of gardening topics, so I could look at a plant and see what kind of fertilizer or other thing it needed, without having to do an entire kitchen load of research.
Once I found the website, I was impressed with all the information. I can plan and grow better gardens with the help of this website, instead of going from store to store. It was nice to be able to browse for my gardening items, and buy them without getting in an argument with someone over a garden section.
I’m sure that every retailer has some kind of garden section for their customers to view. Walmart is just a notch above the rest. They have a wide variety of tools to help the gardener. The website even offers advice on how to plan and grow a garden. It would be interesting to see what else they would add in the future.
