Border Garden Spade by Burgon and Ball

$ 85.00

This border garden spade is slightly smaller than the digging spade, making it ideal for digging in confined spades, or for gardeners who prefer to work with a shorter, lighter-weight tool. This spade has been tested to a breaking strain of 200 lbs; far above and beyond the British standard of 120 lbs.

The mirror-polished stainless steel head on this border spade gives rust resistance and clean movement through the soil. Wide comfort treads at the top of the blade prevent any discomfort for feet, allowing you to really dig deep, in even the most challenging soil.

The FSC certified Ash handle has a comfortable 'Y' grip and is attached to the base via an extra-long, double-riveted strapped socket that introduces strength and an element of flex at this key joint.

Like all the Royal Horticultural Society-endorsed stainless steel tools, this border spade comes with a lifetime guarantee against manufacturer's defects.

Border Garden Spade Size:

  • Length:  39 inches
  • Blade:  5.5 x 9 inches
  • Approx. Weight:  3 lbs 9 oz

I’m purchased these items as a gift for my wife. It’s rather difficult to find Burgon and Ball in the US. She loved them, planning on buying more items soon.

Great garden spade

The garden spade is beautifully crafted and a great tool to use. Love the feel of the handle in my hand!

Nicely made tool

This is a really nicely made spade. I’ve been using it lately to cut in a nice sharp edge between lawn and perennial borders where it does a great job. My only wish is that this UK company would not have made this tool in China- for that I have knocked off one star.

We bought several items with a gift certificate that was a little old and had actually expired. The company was kind enough to reactivate the gift in full so we could still use it. The products we purchased are so well made and sturdy that I’m sure they will last years, if not my lifetime. The staff were so responsive and quick to help us out. I would absolutely recommend Garden Tool Co. to anyone!
