I love to garden but have found that many tools are not suited for women. Either the tools are too large for our hands or the tools that are “made for women” are cheap and flimsy. I have been able to test out a review set of Patricia Ann Tools for this review. They truly are gardening tools for women made by a woman-owned company from Barberton, Ohio.
Gardening Tools for Women by Patricia Ann Tools of Barberton, OH
Patricia Ann Tools are ergonomically designed for smaller hands but are built strong with heavy-duty stainless steel! They are designed for the woman who is serious about gardening! I really like the ergonomic grips on each of the tools, they make the tools easier to keep in my hands and easier to use. The grips are made of a very strong polymer for durability.
The Patricia Ann Gardening Tools for Women set includes everything you need to care for your garden including:
- Hybrid Soil Knife
All of the tools include a lifetime guarantee, so you know you can count on their durability. The blades are made of heavy-duty 13 gauge stainless steel that resists corrosion and rust. For easy storage, the tools include lanyard holes in grip for easy hanging.
Gardening Tools for Women by Patricia Ann Tools Review
My family and I put the gardening tools for women by Patricia Ann Tools to the test this week. We weeded all of our flower beds and spread mulch. I found that the tools were a nicer fit for my kids too because they were smaller than our old tools. Although not intended for kids, they work better than traditional gardening tools.
My tool of choice from the beginning was the weeder. I had so many dandelions popping up in my flower beds that I had to pull them out by the roots. The Patricia Ann weeder did a fantastic job pulling the weeds out by the root – which is the only way to fight dandelions in flower beds. The weeder has an extra long length that gives you extra leverage to really get the full root system out of the ground. The dandelions had no shot against this weeder tool! It felt comfortable in my hand and did a great job.
I used the Patricia Ann Pruner to trim my small rose bush below as well as many thorn bushes in the woods. It cuts really nicely. With the large 1″ cutting capacity, I could really tackle larger thorn bushes with ease as well. We are working hard to turn the wooded area of our yard into a useable yard area for our kids to play in. This means pruning away the thorn bushes the moment they start to grow. I also used the pruner to trim a few young branches from young trees. There is a convenient locking mechanism that secures blades when not in use as well.
My daughter enjoyed spreading the new mulch around the delicate plants and flowers with the Patricia Ann Cultivator. It is a nice size trowel that makes it easy to maneuver and use in flower beds. I also used it in flower beds to clean up the dead plants from the Fall and to break up the compacted soil.
We used the Patricia Ann Trowel and Hybrid Soil Knife to remove weeds as well as transplant a few flowers. I plan to use them more once I buy annuals to plant throughout my yard and vegetables for our garden. The trowel and soil knife both have a high polished finish that allows the tools to slide easily into the soil with little effort. They also have a transplanter ruler guide for measure the depth of digging for planting seeds and plants. The tip is more narrow and gradually widens to create proportional holes with the depth.
Not pictured above is the gardening sunshade hat that is included. It is hand made and designed for a custom fit. It provides sunshade with an enlarged size, while it is easily stored as it rolls up.
I have been very pleased by the quality and design of the Patrica Ann Tool Set. It has everything you need to garden and built of high quality materials. I like the feel of the tools in my hand, they are designed for women and you can tell. They are easier to use which makes my hands much more comfortable than my old tools. I like that this is a woman owned company from the Akron, Ohio area too! I highly recommend Patricia Ann Tools for all your gardening this Summer.
