Like it or not, digging is an unavoidable part of gardening and one that sets a good foundation that will help your plants flourish in the future. The holes you dig should not be too small or too big for the specimen you are planting: the right size of the hole makes sure that the root system has enough space to properly develop as well as enable the plant to reach its full potential. However, it is not always easy to work the soil, especially if the soil itself is problematic (e.g. heavy on clay or compacted). But with the right tools at your disposal, digging does not have to be a cumbersome task.
The innovations in the choice of materials and the design itself allow manufacturers to produce improved traditional tools that make things easier for gardeners and have more efficient performance. For instance, a seemingly simple design change in the length of the shank can have a significant influence on back strain and certain types of metal boast minimal soil adhesion properties that make it easy to clean the tools.
Here you will find our range of forks and spades for digging and planting in the garden. Each tool is constructed with the highest quality materials and optimised to provide more efficient performance in the garden. Our selection includes various types of spades including border spades and pointed spades with matching forks. These digging tools come in long-lasting stainless steel or lighter carbon steel versions.
