Some of our favorite lawn care and gardening tools
Linda's Favorite #1 - Tubtrug
These flexible, lightweight polyethylene tubs are
washable, bendable, crushable, and nearly indestructible.
The tub holds 11 gallons and is great for collecting weeds,
carrying hand tools and supplies out to the garden and
more. Sprigs & Twigs uses these tubs all season!
Linda's Favorite #2 - Multi-Use Hori Hori Knife
This versatile tool is ideal for weeding, transplanting and
dividing perennials. The 7" stainless steel blade of this
hori hori knife is tapered to a point and serrated on one
side for slicing through sod and tough roots. The Sprigs
& Twigs landscape team uses this knife on every job!
Linda's Favorite #3 - Florian Ratchet-Cut Pruners
Florian's unique ratcheting mechanism lets you cut
through stems and branches up to 3/4" diameter in a
series of short, easy strokes. The fiberglass-reinforced
nylon body is surprisingly lightweight, keeping your
hand from tiring. The cutting blades are high carbon
steel with a Teflon coating to resist sap buildup.
