Excellent for digging into rock hard ground and not having the handle, or anything else, break. Lightweight and well-balanced.
I use this trowel like a shovel and it hasn't bent or broken.
excellent for planting any kind of material in soft or hard soils. very happy with it.
Simply the best. Compact, sturdy. In Texas dirt it works! This is my second purchase for same item - cried when I lost the first one after 16 years.
I love this little trowel. It has good weight, feels very sturdy and we put it to the test digging up small bushes, etc. It is very well made and we expect to have it for a long time. The only drawback possibly is that I lost it in the grass a couple of times so had to paint the handle red. Otherwise it is a great buy.
As a professional landscaper I am always digging. Often I need to perform repairs on irrigation systems in tight areas with lots of hard soil and roots. This is the tool that gets it done!
My grandson lost my old trowel. I needed a replacement. I purchased this trowel and I unwrapped it the day I came to plant bulbs. It works great. The wooden handle is very comfortable. It fits my artheritic hand comfortablely. The paint coating releases my dirt and it is easy to clean up.
Love this trowel. Sturdy with long handle makes for easy planting and cultivating. The only trowel I use.
Over the years I have probably purchased a dozen of these trowels as gifts, because this is the last trowel you'll ever need. It's long, so that you can get good leverage. It's strong, so it can deal with harder soils that would bend other trowels. It's hefty, so that you can use it on edge to break up soil clumps. I keep multiples in my workspace because despite all the other tools I have, this is the one trowel I really WANT to use.
This trowel is made in CHINA. Handel wiggles slightly not bad quality but disappointed.
After you purchase a Nursery Trowel, there is no need to ever purchase another trowel in your lifetime. I own and cherish the Nursery Trowel I inherited from my Gardening Grandmother. This Nursery Trowel is strongly made, a joy to use and the best Housewarming gift ever!
