True Tem­per 16-Tine Bow Rake

A tine bow rake is a must for any gar­dener. The True Tem­per bow rake is de­signed to loosen and level soil. The 16 steel tines work hard to break up hard com­pacted soil or mulch and spread the ma­te­rial evenly. It is of good value to home­own­ers with smaller land­scap­ing and gar­den­ing re­quire­ments. Made by Ames.

Ra­dius Gar­den Root Slayer Shovel

This tool has won the 2017 Green Thumb Award for Most In­no­va­tive Gar­den Tool. Roots al­ways seem to get in the way of dig­ging, with the Root Slayer, you might not even no­tice them. The Root Slayer is a multi-pur­pose shovel that can elim­i­nate the need for other tools, such as hatch­ets, pry-bars, and saws when dig­ging around the home. If you've ever hit roots while try­ing to plant a peren­nial, or been stymied by roots when try­ing to dig up a shrub, you'll know what we're talk­ing about.
