Gardening is one of the most popular hobbies. 3D printing is a game-changer for green thumbs, offering customized, innovative solutions to common gardening challenges.

Our guide on the 15 Best 3D Printed Garden Tools & Accessories explores fun and innovative ways to use your 3D printer to enhance your garden. From self-watering planters to precision seed planters, our list dives into tools to make your gardening more efficient and enjoyable.

Seed Starter

Starting your garden from seed is tedious. Using a seed starter helps ensure your seeds have the best chance of sprouting before you move them to your garden bed. This seed starter enables me to germinate my seeds indoors, guaranteeing that they’ll have a chance to grow.

Pot Labels

Have you ever planted several seeds and then forgotten which is which? I have.

These labels help you keep track of your plants so you don’t forget if that’s an oregano or basil.

Modular Hydroponic Tower

A vertical hydroponic tower allows you to maximize your floor space for growing. This 3D-printed hydroponic tower allows you to grow many more plants in a small space.

Hydroponic towers are especially useful in repelling wildlife. Since the plants are situated away from the ground, they will deter garden pests like rabbits from enjoying your food.

The modular design makes it easy to extend the tower as tall as you need.

Bottle Watering Can

One of the best ways to help reduce our environmental footprint is by converting trash into something useful. This print upcycles plastic water bottles into a watering can for your garden.

Plant Clip

If you have a plant that likes to sprawl across your floor rather than grow tall, then this print is for you. These spring-loaded clips help hold your plant next to a stake, helping it grow straight. You can use these for climbing plants like tomatoes or, in my case, my monstera plant.

Modular Self Watering Pot

This print is for the gardener who can’t remember to water their plants. It features a self-watering compartment, which ensures your plants never run dry. I recommend printing the pot with a 100% infill to ensure your 3D print is waterproof. You can also seal the interior with eurothane or resin for extra waterproofing.

Water Spike

Here’s another self-watering that reuses old water bottles. When I first printed this out, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the threads were watertight and sealed the bottle perfectly. Every time I go away on a trip, I make sure to print several of them and place them in all my plants to keep them alive until I return.

Seed Planter

Seed planting is a tedious task made easy with this 3D printed seed planter. I love the measurement strip built into the side which ensures you always plant your seeds at the correct depth.

Garden Tool Holder

This print was a miracle for my shed organization. I often struggle to keep a tidy workspace. You’d often find my rakes and shovels lying on the floor or in a messy pile in the corner. But not anymore.

I found the cam-shaped tool holder by Luzi perfect for keeping them neatly tucked away at the back of the shed. The rotating design adjusts to hold all sizes of handles meaning you won’t need to readjust the spacing when you attach it to your wall.

Garden Rake

This hand garden rake is quite good at moving around fresh potting mix and soil. I especially like how lightweight it is compared to heavy metal ones. I recommend printing in PETG to handle tougher soils.

Garden Shovel

This garden shovel is perfect for potting your plants. It’s lightweight, which reduces strain on your wrists, and it’s perfect for small projects. I like to use my printed garden shovel in the house when repotting my plants.

Garden Sprinkler

This neat 3D print makes it easy to water your garden evenly. The hose attachments spin, ensuring all your plants get enough water.

Garden Hose Connector

If you need to attach hoses together to extend across your yard, consider printing this garden hose connecter. I was shocked that it wasn’t leaking. The tight fitting and watertight seal make it a quick and easy solution to extend my hose’s reach.

Garden Gnome

What says gardening is like a cute garden gnome? This year, I personalized my garden with several of these little friends. I really appreciate how clean this print is. It doesn’t require any support, so I could place it in my garden straight off the printer.

Baby Groot Plant Pot

Just because you have indoor succulents doesn’t mean you can spruce them up with a bit of creative personalization. This Groot pot is one of the most popular models on Thingiverse. And for good reason. He’s just so adorable. And the succulent adds a bit of har to the already cute baby Groot.
