Lightweight garden tools for allotmenteers

Owning an allotment is hard work and can be especially demanding on our backs, therefore a good set of tools is essential.

Wilkinson Sword is highlighting its new Ultralight range during National Allotment Week (12th – 18th August 2019). The collection has been designed to provide gardeners with tools that are expertly crafted for comfort and ease-of-use across a number of key gardening tasks, without compromising on strength or style.

The range incudes shears, pruners and loppers, shears and rakes for lawns plus hoes, trowels, forks, shovels and spades for cultivation. The tools are up to 50% lighter than standard, a weight saving which helps to reduce fatigue allowing gardeners to use them for longer periods of time. This makes them the ideal solution for hardworking allotmenteers.

Key products for allotment owners include the Ultralight Stainless Steel Dutch Hoe, which will slice through the roots of weeds with minimal effort, simply push and pull it just below the surface of the soil.

The Ultralight Digging Spade is 40% lighter than traditional digging spades which helps to reduce strain when used for long periods of time. Its rust-resistant stainless steel head with serrated edge will break up heavy soils with ease.

For allotmenters who are just starting out on an overgrown plot, the Ultralight Bypass Loppers will help to cut back overhanging vegetation. The non-stick coated blade will precisely cut through young and green wood, whilst the aluminium handles provide strength and lightness. These loppers are 50% lighter than standard, saving arm strain when working for long periods of time.


All Wilkinson Sword garden tools carry the reassuring Wilkinson Sword 10-year guarantee.
