There is an old school of thought that gardening is sheer hard work. After all, many gardening tools feature solid wooden or heavy steel handles, adding extra weight and effort to the tasks in hand. Leading garden tool company Fiskars disagrees, believing that gardeners should enjoy tasks, leaving plenty of energy to relax in the garden afterwards.
And so Fiskars approached the problem with a simple philosophy: create a range of tools made from lightweight, yet robust materials. From this came the Garden Light range, a collection of tools engineered to make the most laborious tasks a pleasure. Fiskars believes in old-fashioned values, not old-fashioned tools.
A complete range of lightweight stick tools
From spades for raking digging to a wide range of cultivating tools, there is a Fiskars Garden Light tool for every task. Featuring efficient blades, spikes and heads made from durable materials, the Garden Light range benefits from aluminium shaft, ergonomic handles or drop-shaped soft grips for optimal hold.
Manufactured in lightweight aluminium shaft and extra strong boron steel blades head, both spade and fork incorporate a clever oval shaft with a plastic. This makes the tool lightweight, resistant to rust, helps to maximise the grip as well as insulates from the cold. Tools are the lightest on the market, with each tool weighing less than 1.4kgs.
