We all know the phrase, ‘buy cheap, buy twice’, and this is particularly true of gardening tools. When you think about what we put a spade through, it makes sense to invest in one that will withstand some stress and strain.
Spades are essential tools in a gardener’s armoury, being used for a variety of tasks from digging to slicing plants and lifting soil, to edging and general gardening tasks. Garden tool specialist Wilkinson Sword has a wide range of spades that are built to last and that will be trusted gardening companions for years to come.
The Stainless Steel Digging Spade and Border Spade both provide high quality and performance, with an ergonomically designed weatherproofed ash handle. The Digging Spade is perfect for digging over large, unprepared areas to cultivate or improve drainage. It’s also great for preparing soil for planting shrubs, seeds and vegetables, so is a fabulous all-rounder.
The Border Spade, on the other hand, is ideal for lifting plants, maintaining flower beds and digging out weeds. Smaller than a traditional digging spade, it is perfect for working in smaller, more confined areas.
The tool heads are made from mirror polished rust resistant stainless steel, ensuring that they will remain in peak condition for years, while the double riveted head sockets provide additional strength and longevity.
Carbon Steel Digging and Border Spade
The Wilkinson Sword Carbon Steel range is manufactured using high quality carbon steel, strengthened in key areas and secured with a solid wood shaft making the tools hardwearing and durable. The stylish green epoxy finish provides additional resilience to the rigours of gardening.
The Digging Spade makes it easy to dig over large areas with heavy and compact soils with ease, while the Border Spade is designed for borders and smaller areas.
Both tools benefit from a strong carbon steel head with sturdy tread plate and a natural weatherproofed wooden ash handle. The double riveted head sockets provide additional strength.
The Wilkinson Sword Ultralight Digging Spade is strong and expertly crafted in a comfortable, ultralight package. It combines the perfect mix of comfort, precision, and lightweight usability.
Up to 40% lighter than a traditional digging spade, the tool can be used for longer with less strain, while the rust resistant stainless steel head provides endurance, with serrated edge to help break up heavier soils.
All Wilkinson Sword garden tools carry the reassuring Wilkinson Sword 10-year guarantee.
