SHIMIZU Garden and Grit Trowels

SHIMIZU wide Garden Trowel

Weighing just 170 g, these garden trowels are very light, yet thanks to their design they are extremely robust and suited for heavy gardening work. The trowel is made of hardened, rustproof stainless steel and the handle, made of glass-fibre reinforced nylon, provides stability and is comfortable to hold. A centimetre scale on the inside of the trowel shows the digging depth - a handy help when sowing seed. The trowel is also ideal for spreading grit in winter.

Total length 280 mm
Total width measured at the plastic base 82 mm

Code 313187CartPrice € 8.90
SHIMIZU sharp Garden Trowel

Design as above, but total length 310 mm. Same width as above at the base of the plastic. Ideal as hand trowel for precise positioning of seeds thanks to the more pointed form, but the tip is slightly less sturdy than the wide trowel.

Gardening tools made by Berger in Wuppertal

Siberian dogwood (Cornus alba Sibirica) in autumn

We have recently picked up a select line of robust, hand-finished garden tools by Berger in Wuppertal. One will find two unbelievably robust hand shovels, a small hoe, and an asparagus knife that also works very well to remove weeds that have long roots.

From the Schwäbische Hüttenwerke (SHW) in the Black Forest, we are pleased to be able to offer two small garden hoes and a sowing pick. You will be impressed by the obvious solidity, workmanship, and well-thought-out design of these premium tools.

Burgon & Ball’s stainless steel range of garden tools has to be seen to be believed. The tools combine not only quality, reliability and durability but also value for money. Stainless steel has, of course, impressive looks, but it also means less friction when working in the soil, and far less risk of corrosion.
