It wasn’t too long ago that if you went looking for a garden trowel, you could go to 10 different places and buy a trowel at each place and you’d end up 10 almost identical looking trowels. And that was fine; I mean, all we used them for was digging small holes, planting, potting and maybe some occasional weeding.

Well, times have changed and some of the better garden tool makers are making specialty garden trowels. Don’t get me wrong, the traditional garden trowel is and always will be around and there will always be a use for them, but some tool makers have taken a look that the different jobs that a gardener does and adapted the trowel’s shape to fit a particular garden chore.

Good trowel – bad trowel. A good quality trowel should last you a lifetime, but all too often these days the garden tools available today are cheap knockoffs. A good garden trowel should have some weight to it and made of a good quality steel. Another good measure of the tools worth is its warranty. Is the tool maker proud enough of their tools to guarantee it for life?

So, what kind of trowels are there? Here's a list of some of the trowels we offer.

  • Standard Trowel
  • Flower Bed Trowel
  • Transplanting Trowel
  • Japanese Trowel
  • Hori Hori Trowel
  • Rock Garden Trowel

  • Terrarium Trowel
  • Half-Round Trowel
  • Archeology Trowel

As you can see, trowels have changed from just the standard shape. We all garden a little differently and a trowel someone might use for planting, another might use it for weeding. We invite you to have a look at the trowels we offer and imagine how a certain shaped trowel might make your gardening more enjoyable.
