New range of garden tools
Burgon & Ball, the UK’s oldest manufacturer of garden tools and accessories, is launching an exciting new licensed range of tools in a major collaboration with Europe’s largest conservation charity, the National Trust.
The new range from these two trusted names in gardening, offers gardeners superior quality and a heritage aesthetic, while also celebrating traditional manufacturing techniques.
The range is stylish and practical and a percentage from sales of the tools will help to support the conservation activities of the National Trust.
The new range consists of a variety of tools including a digging spade; digging fork; trowel, round-tined fork; patio weeding knife and pocket knife. They are crafted largely in a high-carbon steel with dark wood and touches of brass carrying the National Trust and Burgon and Ball maker’s mark. These range is a delightful nod to the garden tools of yesteryear and have a unique and distinctive look.
Manufacturing processes, little seen today, are used to create tools which deliver exceptional performance, techniques combined with today’s environmental concerns in mind with FSC® certified hardwood handles, recyclable card packaging and vegetable-based inks.
The hand tools feature brass ferrules with maker’s mark, unusual and highly effective sharpened tool edges to slice into the soil, real leather chords for hanging and an antique bronze power coating for protection.
The range is available to purchase online from both Burgon & Ball and the National Trust and offers outstanding quality at affordable prices.
Burgon & Ball was founded in Sheffield in 1730 and is the UK’s oldest manufacturer of garden tools. The National Trust, founded in 1895, this year celebrates its 125th anniversary, and cares for more than 250,000 hectares of countryside, 780 miles of coastline and hundreds of special places across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
