Perennial Gardner's Most Used Tool
Used this tool to divide clumps of iris and other perennials in a large bed. Shovel is sharp enough to dig thru clay soil, small enough to maneuver around irrigation systems and light enough not to feel fatigued at the end of the day. This lovely floral shovel will make you re-think your commitment to your small hand trowel. Do yourself a favor and invest in this good quality, excellent value tool that provides the leverage your back will appreciate. *QUICK TIP* Make sure to select a shovel that the grain of the wood is oriented so that the oval rings are to the side of the handle, not on the top or bottom (relative to the blade). This makes for a longer lasting handle. See the picture for clarity. Also you might think about replacing the rivet that connects the shovel head to the handle with a carriage bolt and nylock nut.

    Better Leverage and Lightweight for Small Garden
    Like the title, these are its best attributes - long handle for some leverage and light weight, easy to tow around and small for a small garden plot. I also have a very short, but heavier, shovel and I don't want to go back to using it, too much bending. With this, less back bending which is great! While it is still new, the edge is very sharp, good for opening bags of garden soil. So, I am very happy with this.

    Amazingly simple.
    I fell in love with this tool after using it 15 minutes. It is now my primary garden tool. It's like a larger trowel with a long handle, which is a back saver. The wood handle is design comfortably long with a rubber sleeve on the end that contours to allow your finger to securely wrap and hold the tool as it works. It is very light inspite of the alloy spade and wood handle. The spade part bent and twisted a little as I used my foot in some tougher soil, but I was quickly able to adjust to a better foot technique to avoid damage. The little space there is on top of the spade part for you foot is likely the cause. Keep in mind this is a garden tool and not your typical heavy duty yard shovel. If you do gardening or find the yard shovel to large for your needs, you want to buy this product. HIGHLY recommended for gardeners.

    Ames quality still exists even on their $14 garden shovel
    Ames quality still exists and the added bonus is they bring this market this garden shovel under fifteen dollars. The quality is evident when you put this shovel to use and it is backed up by a very generous warranty. Try as I might I simply cannot say anything bad about this garden shovel other than maybe the handle could have used a bit more sanding prior to what appears to be a brushed varnish finish.

    Have been looking for a small shovel with a long handle for years. My husband passed and a large shovel is too heavy for me to handle.
