Just when I think I’m as content as a cricket on cabbage in the garden, along comes an innovation that elevates my dirt-digging joy to a new level of bliss. A simple switch in the size and grip of a tool and presto! – I’m smack in the middle of garden tool nirvana.
Initially, I scoffed a bit at the concept. I’ve been using standard size gardening tools for thirty-plus years, integrating a few new-fangled updates here and there, but primarily dwelling in the camp of “a trowel is a trowel.” In the case of Patricia Ann Tools, my skepticism couldn’t be further off target.
After a lengthy career in the gardening tool industry, Pat Taylor, used her extensive knowledge of and passion for gardening to develop ergonomic tools specifically for women. Made of stainless steel Patricia Ann Tools are also designed for optimum performance and longevity in use.
The smaller handles and well-position grips offer increased flexibility and ultimately, better wrist and hand support. End result for me, less carpel tunnel flare-ups and more enjoyment cultivating and pruning.
When it comes to increasing your gardening enjoyment, turns out, sometimes size really does matter.
