Where to Buy Quality Garden Tools

Don’t settle for box-store tool mediocrity. There are many online retailers of quality garden tools. This list will help you find them.

I’ve included links, locations and my favorite tools from certain retailers.
Drop me a line if you know of a retailer that’s not listed here.

Earth Tools BCS (Kentucky)

Earth Tools has an eclectic selection of high-quality tools. Their prices are excellent and they walk their talk.

They don’t offer online ordering so be prepared to call.

Recommendations: SHW Midweight Choppers, Dewit Half Moon Hoe, SHW Garden Rake.

Easy Digging also has an interesting mix of garden tools and some good how-to info.

They’ve been in business a while and have a good track record with many positive reviews.
