To fully understand the different types of shovels, first, it’s a good idea to learn about the anatomy of a shovel.If you’re looking for a new shovel, take a minute to think about these considerations before making your choice. Purchasing the right tool for the job will make life much easier and save you time and money.
A. Intended Use
This shovel is specifically designed to create neat edges around lawns or borders, creating a clean definitive edge. It has a long shaft, with a small-sized metal semi-circle attached at the bottom, and a straight footplate where you can apply pressure with your feet. The blade is usually sharp and flat, as it should be pressed directly straight down into the lawn or soil. The blade is quite shallow, as it does not need to make deep cuts to be effective. While these are predominantly used for their main purpose of creating and maintaining garden edging, they can also be useful for other tasks, including breaking up shallow roots of plants. As these shovels have quite a small blade, they are ideal for use in small areas where you need to be quite specific to avoid harming nearby plants.A machete is a powerful tool for clearing brush. In the tropics, machetes are ubiquitous, all-purpose tools: they have been used to carve trails through tropical forests, to slash out clearings for crops, to crack open coconuts and slice papayas. Use your machete to keep the peace with weeds and brush in your garden, or to serve watermelon with a flourish.
Use a machete with care and respect: it is a razor-sharp tool.
The blade of a Fiskars machete is well balanced and heavy enough to handle brush and small saplings along fence lines and in out-of-the-way places.
Tip #2The Faithfull Countryman Hand Fork is ideal for working the top soil and for the easy removal of weeds and unwanted growth where the entire root needs to be removed. Made from heat treated (hardened) carbon steel to provide both strength and durability. Powder coated finish provides improved resistance to rust, scratches, humidity and alkalines in the soil.
Fitted with a European Ash handle supplied from FSC® sustainable resources. These are then lacquered for protection against the weather. The small size allows it to work in tight spaces where a long handle tool cannot be used.
Because they are often used for digging up weeds, hand forks are sometimes referred to as 'weeding forks' but they are suited to many jobs around the garden, such as preparing planting holes, transplanting, aerating and mixing additives into your soil and are indispensable for levelling around border edges and tidying up the soil.
The Countryman Range has been designed for the gardener who requires a tool they can rely on to provide years of dependable service.
