The shovel is one of the most fundamental garden tools and belongs in every garden. It always consists of at least two parts: a shovel blade and a shovel handle, which are connected to each other by rivets or screws. The piercing edges of the shovel blade are hardened and sharpened, so they are no problem even in hard soil.

The shovel is mainly used for digging and working soil, such as loosening, moving, and digging soil, as well as cutting off flowerbeds or lawn edges. To facilitate this work, many shovels have a so-called tire profile edge, which significantly improves the power flow from the shoe to the shovel. This tire profile edge means additional work steps in production and is a quality feature. There are differences between men's (for gardeners), women's, and children's shovels, mainly in terms of the size of the shovel handle and shovel blade, and therefore, the weight varies as well.

How do I find the right shovel for me?

To find the right shovel for your needs, you should consider some factors:

  1. Purpose of use: What do you mainly want to use the shovel for? For digging holes, transplanting plants, or distributing materials such as fertilizer or compost?

  2. Size: The size of the shovel should be tailored to your body size and strength. A shovel that is too large or too heavy can cause fatigue and make the work more difficult.

  3. Material: Shovels can be made of different materials, such as stainless steel or aluminum. Stainless steel is durable and corrosion-resistant, while aluminum is lighter and better suited for smaller jobs.

  4. Handle: The handle of the shovel should fit comfortably in your hand and be made of a non-slip material. An ergonomically shaped handle can help prevent injuries or fatigue.

By considering these factors, you should be able to find a shovel that suits your needs and provides good support for your gardening work.
