This post is about Wolf Garten Tools (Wolf Garden Tools). Whether you have heard about or come across this brand of tools before I do hope this post will be of interest to you.
I will be writing about some of the most popular and useful of these gardening tools to hopefully help you in choosing the right tools for your gardening needs.
Be it that you are buying gardening tools for your own garden or that gardening is what you are employed to do, in my opinion these are some of the best gardening tools you will find.
I myself have been using a lot of Wolf Garten tools on an almost daily basis for many years now and have yet to have a single one let me down or need replacing. Believe me, these tools are built to last (just make sure as with any tools that you look after them. Use them in the correct way for what they’re intended for and take the time to clean them after use) and I’m certain I will get many more years use before I’d even need to consider replacing any.
Interchangeable Garden Tools
There is a massive range of interchangeable tools from Wolf Garten. You buy the Handle/s which come in a range of sizes, or the telescopic kind, to suit your individual needs. The Straight Handles come in either aluminium (very high quality) which makes them both very strong but lightweight as well. These Handles are half coated with a plastic sleeve which makes them very comfortable to use. You can also buy the straight Handles made out of wood (ash), with a plastic grip at the top of the Handle and aluminium socket on the bottom.
Also, available are the D-Grip Handles which are perfect for the Fork, Spade, Lawn Edger attachments. These are available in 2 sizes to provide ease of use for anyone.
You can also buy Small and Mini Handles, which are perfect for the Hand Trowel, Fork and Saw attachments.
All Handles have the aluminum socket on the end and a push button which is how the attachments are fitted. All interchangeable tool heads fit all Handles.
There are far too many different kinds of tool heads you can purchase for me to list them all here, but some of the more useful and widely used ones are:
- Rake heads (Long, Leaf, Longspan, Springtine, Bow, Soil, Fan and All purpose rake heads)
- Hoes (Dutch, Swoe, Double and Draw hoes)
- Brushes (Decking, Angle, Flexi, House, Patio, Street, Yard, Weeding Brushes)
- Patio and paving scraper
- Cultivators, Push pull weeders, Soil millers and Aerators
- Hand fork and Hand trowel
- Weed extractor and weeding knife
Being interchangeable makes these tools excellent for saving space. Not needing separate Handles for each tool head you will find it much more efficient and space-saving whether they’re in the garden shed or the back of the work van.
Please note that these tools come with a 10-year guarantee, although I personally believe they will last a lot longer if looked after in the right way.
As well as interchangeable garden tools, Wolf Garten also sell many other tools. Some of the most popular I will write about below.
Tools For Digging
In the Fork digging range you can buy either the Digging Fork, which is used for the digging of heavier compacted soil, compost etc… or the smaller Border Fork, which is used more for the digging of borders, flowerbeds and when the space is confined.
With Spades, as well as the Digging and Border Spades you can also get a Rabbiting Spade, which is useful when you need a wider blade for planting. There is also a Tree Planting Spade available. Both the Rabbiting and Tree Planting Spades have curved blades which makes cutting through soil very easy.
The last tool I will tell you about in this section is the Half Moon Lawn edging Blade, which is used for straightening/tidying lawn edges and great also for path/paving edges and borders.
Fixed Handheld Tools
There are some great hand-held Wolf Garten tools (Wolf Garden tools) available to buy. They all have very comfortable handle grips, which make using any of them very easy.
The Flower Fork is very handy for use in flower beds for turning soil, weeding and planting/transplanting plants and bulbs. It is ideal for working in areas that are densely populated with plants. It is lightweight and very comfortable to use and very strong as the tines are made of steel.
The Hand Trowels you can get are a 5cm Planting Trowel or the larger 7cm Wide Trowel. Both these Trowels can be used for planting/transplanting and general digging and weeding. These are also made out of steel and the pointed blades make cutting into soil easy.
The Weeding/Planting Knife is a great tool to have at hand, being narrow and long enough to take out deep-rooted weeds with relative ease. It’s especially good for removing weeds in the lawn because it can remove the weeds without disturbing the surrounding lawn. It is also ideal for making the holes in the soil when you’re planting bulbs and is long enough to make varying degrees of hole depth depending on what bulbs you’re planting.
The Hand Grubber is great for loosening and aerating the soil, especially in flower beds, borders and hard to reach areas. It can also be used with great effect general weeding. Because of the angle you hold this tool, it is definitely a better alternative to the Hand Fork for weeding for people who have wrist problems (injuries).
The Fixed Bulb Planter is especially handy for the planting of bulbs, bedding plants etc… All you have to do is place onto the soil, twist and push down to make the hole. It has a depth gauge on the side which comes in very handy as different bulbs/bedding plants need to be planted at varying depths. The maximum diameter hole it will make is 6cm. After planting your bulb/bedding plant you just press the button on the handle and the soil you removed to make the hole is automatically released to cover the bulb or put round the plant.
The Scraper is brilliant for clearing weeds/moss between paving/patio slabs and going along the edges of kerbs and buildings. Very comfortable to use and having a steel blade it is very strong and sturdy. This tool really does make light work of scraping the weeds out from anywhere you need it to.
My favourite and most used of the wolf garten fixed hand tools is the Double Hoe. With 3 strong steel tines on one side and a sharp hoeing blade on the other side this tool can be used for a multitude of gardening tasks. It is great for working around rockeries and areas where space is confined, but also you can use in more open areas to great effect. Both sides can be used to weed very easily and the sharp hoeing blade means that it cuts through the soil with ease. I like to use the Double Hoe to create a shallow trench along the edges of borders/flowerbeds after I have been along with the Lawn Edger and Edging Shears. It makes them look very neat and tidy and customers will always comment on how good the borders/flowerbeds look when finished.
As with the interchangeable garden tools, all these tools come with a 10-year guarantee.
Tools For Cutting
Wolf Garten do a wide range of tools for cutting, some of which I will detail below.
There are two types of secateurs and lopper available: Anvil and Bypass.
Anvil is where the blade closes against a softer metal on the lower blade and Bypass is where the blades go past each other like scissors.
For pruning and cutting of plants/wood that is live or only recently dead than you should use Bypass Secateurs as these will give a clean cut (If used correctly) and not damage the plants or buds. When using the Anvil Secateurs you will more than likely crush the stem of the plants when the blade and bottle Anvil jaw come into contact with each other. You are also more likely to catch the buds in the anvil jaw when cutting plants back.
Anvil Secateurs are very good for cutting up dead wood or anything that has already been taken off the main plant, tree or shrub and you will just be cutting up to get rid of.
In the wolf Garten range for Bypass Secateurs you can buy.
RR1500 – Which are perfect for medium size hands and have an internal spring mechanism, an easy to use push lock on top and can cut up to 18mm in diameter.
