Several tools

I bought a few hand tools and I am always pleased with anything I buy from this company. I love the personal service and the high-quality tools which make a huge difference to my gardening experience. Grateful for them!

Where has this amazing tool been my whole gardening life?!

I have arthritis & the length of this handle & the use of the T shape at the top put much less strain on my wrist. This will be my favorite go to tool!

Another Great Tool!

I have quite a few Sneeboer tools, and this is just another great tool for my collection. My ground is pretty compact and this spade gives me the leverage to dig holes for my plants.

A “go to” tool

This is the first tool I grab when I have gallon sized plants or smaller to get in the ground. The amazing thing is that in spite of my terribly rocky soil, this trowel can take repeated “ah-oh” underground discoveries and never bend, loose its edge or useful point. I didnt know why this tool has a tee handle at the end of the handle but I have found it so useful when working out fist sized rocks by wedging them with the point then twisting the handle to flip them out. I have to say that I have grown to love all my Sneeboer tools. After wasting money on cheep hardware store tools that rust, bend and break for over 40 years of gardening, I wish I had discovered Sneeboer before. Beside beautiful, the quality is obvious when you hold them in your hands. I would now be lost without them. Here’s to (hopefully) another 40 years WITH Sneeboer!

Punches above its weight

My borders are full enough that it is a challenge to plant and transplant within them. That led me to this small spade, which enables me to find a spot clear enough to carefully rest on my knees and then do the project from that position without trampling things. It is so sharp and well designed that it performs almost all the tasks that I used to do with a traditional step-on spade, including dividing perennials with extensive root systems.
