In keeping with Rittenhouse tradition, we have a lineup of essential tools for the avid gardener. The search has finally ended for high quality garden tools that are meant to last. When you enter your tool shed, you should not have to worry about whether or not the tool you are reaching for will fail under normal usage. That is why Rittenhouse spent so much time trying to find just the right quality to present to our customers. In the end we were able to find a high-quality garden tool that is made to work, but also combines pleasing aesthetics. Each of these premium quality garden tools feature a solid Red Oak handle combined with a polished stainless steel blade.
Rather than presenting you with a long list of different tools or the same tools, but in different sizes, we have put together a collection of easy-to-choose tools that are essential to every gardener.
- A - Ceremonial Digging Shovel. Perfect for those heavy-duty jobs that require some good old-fashioned elbow grease. This shovel is great for digging and moving large amounts of soil. Blade: 9"W x 12"H. Overall Tool Length: 42".
- B - Digging Fork. Another heavy-duty tool that is perfect for the tougher jobs. It works wonders for turning over soil and preparing beds for planting. Reach for the Digging Fork before your shovel if you find the soil is hard and compacted. Blade: 7"W x 12"H. Overall Tool Length: 44".
- C - Border Spade. Smaller and lightweight, this spade is a wizard in tight areas, such as beds or along borders. No doubt this will be a constant companion when heading out into your garden to plant or just general maintenance. Blade: 5.5"W x 9 " H. Overall Tool Length: 42".
- D - Edger. This sturdy edger can help you achieve the same manicured edges that are found in professionally maintained gardens. It is an essential tool to help maintain those nice, clean edges that everyone wants, as well as for keeping grass from creeping into beds. Blade: 8.5"W x 4.5" H. Overall Tool Length: 38".
Remember, while these tools are among the sturdiest out there, they are not indestructible. Always use your fine garden tools for the purpose they were intended and keep them maintained.
