A square ended shovel is ideal for removing large amounts of earth at once but they do tend to be tougher to push into the ground. Its often useful to use them on softer earth or for transporting piles of mud that have already been formed. They also make great tools for dispensing compost and manure based fertilizer over the area you wish to focus on.
Having a good quality shovel will certainly save you many hours of back breaking effort. A quality shovel is one that wont break the first time that you punch the hard dirt and pull back on the handle. It also needs to withstand the effects of clay or rocks maintaining a good edge.
The triangular spade can make a fine all purpose tool and is in particular handy for creating those larger holes that are required to transplant larger shrubs or plant trees. One version is the telescope handle shovel which is fitted with a very narrow blade - similar to a trowel by with a longer handle. They are perfect for making small holes while standing upright and are also great for many weeding tasks.
Apart from the basics there are many helpful garden home tools. A pole saw or folding saw is perfect for pruning trees. A hoe is likely to be used frequently. A mattock is handy for relaxing earth during weeding and transplanting. Gloves are often needed when working with those prickly plants. A trimmer watering can weeding tools... the list is never ending.
