Landscaping or Gardening is a labour intensive job that many people are not fond of. I am one of those people who loves the physical work out as much as the end result. I love working with the earth and seeing a finished landscape evolve through my own hard work.
The tools used are of utmost importance, saving you frustration, time and yes money at the end of your work day. My favourite and most used tools are a pitch fork, a good pair (or two) of trimmers, loppers, a rake and an edger as well as a garden bag for trimmings and clippings. As a landscape gardener I need tools that I can depend on day after day. After many dollars spent on tools that did not stand up to the test of time, I discovered “Fiskars” brand. The company, which was founded almost 400 years ago, offers a life time guarantee on their products.
My work takes me to every corner of an outdoor space and the job changes often by the minute. I needed tools that would stand up to the intense workout of multiple demands hour after hour. So I bought my first pair of Fiskars hand trimmers and was so satisfied with them, I bought another pair. My first pair is now many years old and I still use them. Since my first purchase, I have replaced most of my tools with Fiskars. I have not found another brand that stands up as well. So at the end of my work day when I am cleaning up my tools and the garden area, I am grateful that I found a product that stands up to the labour intensive job of garden work and landscaping Many other tools I have purchased, became dull almost immediately, often bending or warping after little use and many others rusted from the moisture. But not Fiskars…they just keep going and going. And I love the orange coloured handles…easy to find in the garden. I have lost many hand tools in the garden because they are black and difficult to see against the black soil.
So the next time you are thinking of purchasing or replacing some or all of your garden tools…consider Fiskars…you will be glad you did. They are available in every hardware store and have a website loaded with tool and garden information. Best of all…they come with a lifetime guarantee! See you in the garden…or the garden centre! Cheers!
