RADIUS GARDEN TOOLS
You’ll just have to put one of these tools in your hands to appreciate how comfortable and well-made they are. Designed and produced by Radius Garden, these unusual looking tools use the latest research into human factors and tool usage to maximize your power while minimizing hand and wrist stress. Pick up one of their small hand tools—trowel, cultivator or weeder—and you will be ready to throw your old hand tools away. The curved grip is ergonomically designed to reduce stress on your wrist, and the aluminum-magnesium blades are lightweight and strong.
The larger tools, such as spades and forks, have an O-shaped handle, which, at first sight, seems very odd. However, once you start using them, you realize how often you use two hands on the handle. The O-grip provides four times the gripping surface that the typical D-grip does. The tools have an unbreakable steel shaft, encased in resin, and the blades are stainless steel. O-grip tools include spades, forks, weeder, edger, and bulb auger.
There are also two garden rakes. Both have curved heads instead of the traditional T-shaped heads. Again, your first impression will be that they look odd, but when you try them out, you won’t believe how much they make sense. The rake with the smaller head, known as the GroundHog, is touted as the best cleanup rake ever—great for wet leaves and small spaces. The GardenShark has a larger head, and is great in the garden for smoothing a seed bed or spreading mulch evenly.

SICKLE SECTION HOES
The farmers among you will recognize the small head on these hoes as sickle sections from a sickle mower. The small, sharp blade is perfect for working around perennials and shrubs in the garden without damaging the good plants and without bringing too much soil up to the surface. You won’t have much use for bigger, clunkier hoes after using one of these.
