Long Handle Shovels – My Opinion
A long-handle shovel or spade comes with some advantages and means less bending and more leverage for scooping and that are just a few of them.
An extra long handle on your gardening tools can be not only a back saver but also make working in the garden a lot easier.
Let’s be honest and accept that getting older makes gardening a little harder sometimes. I decided that digging is one of the things that were getting harder for me.
After looking at the gardening stools to sit on I thought it was time to find some other product to make our life easier.
I have found 3 different types of shovels, spades, or whatever you like to call them that are worth having a look at in my opinion.
