Most minimalism enthusiasts are probably already familiar with Marie Kondo, the minimalist maven responsible for writing the hit book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and hosting the Netflix Show “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo.” 

For those not familiar with Kondo, she’s an avid promoter of reducing the number of miscellaneous things that take up space in our homes and our brains. Thanks to her thoughtful philosophies and techniques, people far and wide have become inspired to cut the clutter in their lives and only keep items that “spark joy. 

Given that so many people have found success using Kondo’s clutter-reducing methods in their homes, it makes sense that the minimalist authority is now offering us thoughtfully-designed, sustainable products that we can use to apply her life-changing principles to our outdoor spaces. 

But even if you’re no minimalist, it’s hard not to love this line, which is as beautiful as it is functional. Check out a few of our favorites from the collection below. 


Canvas Half-Wall Komono Organizer, $117

Speaking of tools, a proper trowel is among the most important tool for any gardening endeavor. And while there are certainly cheaper trowels out there, this gem, hand-forged by a father-and-son team in Japan and comprised of steel and solid wood, is built to last, so you may never need to buy another trowel again. 


Bamboo Indoor/Outdoor Gloves, $10

Thanks to their bamboo composition, these gloves are as breathable as they are useful. Bamboo fiber tends to keep your hands cooler and drier than other common glove materials, like nylon, so they’re great for the hot summer months. Plus, they come with cushy foam latex over the palm for maximum comfort. 


Japanese Heirloom Vegetable Seeds, $40
