Choosing tools that fit

We might have our passion for gardening in common, but still we're all different shapes and sizes as gardeners. That means we also have different gardening tools that are right for us. At Trowbridge Garden Centre you will find the right tools that fit your needs. If you're not sure yet which tools you need or what your garden requires, we are happy to help you out and give you some personal advice. Trowbridge Garden Centre in Trowbridge-Wiltshire is the right place for must have gardening tools!

The right gardening tools are the ones that fit

You wouldn't expect to feel comfortable using the same tools as your taller-than-average neighbour, which is exactly why it's important to choose the tools that fit. It makes it easier and works more efficiently if you have the right tools for yourself and your garden of course. Working stooped over a fork that's too short, or struggle with a rake that's too tall is the exact combination that brings muscle problems and back issues. To find out which tool is the right fit, you should be able to work standing as straight as possible, without straining your arms and shoulders. At Trowbridge Garden Centre we have a wide variety of tools in different lengths and weights, so you can choose the one that suits you best. Our staff is happy to help you out if you have any questions of course. 

How to choose the tools that fit?

To find the right tool, take one as an example and lift it as you would in the garden. 

  • Consider the weight: is it the right weight, heavy, or light?
  • Grip the handle: is the width of the handle comfortable?
  • Place the tool next to you: is the length ok as it is, or do you need a longer or shorter tool?
  • Any other specific needs: for example left-handed grips, or long-handled tools for when bending down is difficult.

Do you need some help with finding the right specialist tools, or are you not quite sure which tools work well for the specific tasks you want to do? Feel free to ask our staff any advice, and we are happy to help you out. There is always a staff member available to take a look or to show some of the options we have in store.
