Available in 2 lengths: Standard & Tall
Finding the right border spade can be a challenge for professional gardeners - its a tool we use constantly so its important to find the right size, weight and proportion for our bodies. Using a tool properly fitted to your body makes it easier to work comfortably and without undue fatigue.
The Sneeboer border spade has a smaller, shorter blade than many of the spades I've tried over the years. This, combined with the unobtrusive t-grip, makes it less cumbersome to use in a crowded border.
The standard and tall sizes are almost identical: the blade and the grip are exactly the same on both; the difference is in the length of the shaft. Taller folks will definitely appreciate the extra length!
