Turf cut­ters

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden -

Tools come in many shapes and sizes, all of them with a long pedi­gree. The half-moon edg­ing iron is a most use­ful tool in ex­pert hands, con­fer­ring in­stant or­der on over­grown edges. Long-han­dled edg­ing shears com­plete the trans­for­ma­tion. The turf­ing iron, a spade-like tool with a heavy steel blade shaped vaguely like a heart, is just the job for lift­ing small ar­eas of turf. The thick­ness of each piece is fur­ther re­fined by the use of the turf knife and box, ideal for win­ter re­pair of dam­aged edges. For those who in­sist on bowl­ing­green qual­ity, these are the crafts­man’s choice. Carters turf­ing iron no. 80, £76.69, Carters (www. richard­carterltd.co.uk; 01484 666806)
