The New York Botanical Garden's custom stainless steel border shovel is a smaller-sized, lightweight tool used in tightly planted areas where a pointed shovel is needed.
Tested and used by NYBG horticulture staff, the border shovel is designed in the traditional English style and features a handcrafted red oak handle, stainless steel blade, and, of course, The New York Botanical Garden logo. Red oak resists breakage and even increases in hardness with age. The handle is ergonomically shaped for comfort in use. The stainless steel blade will maintain a good cutting edge, and the polished finish eases use in wet soil. Best of all, it comes with a lifetime guarantee.
