When garden tool meets art piece. This is a tool you'll use...and want to display!

This Melbourne-made tool is a reclaimed, single-piece copper tube trowel. Designed specifically for digging in established garden beds, courtyard and balcony gardens, as well as indoors. Ideal for planting seedlings and bulbs, as well as removing weeds. Can be used in slightly more difficult or clayish soils as well.

Much of the copper is up-cycled, reclaimed tube collected from metal recycling centers around Melbourne. Copper is mainly used because it is malleable enough to shape but being single tube, it is still strong enough to handle years in the garden. It is also infinitely recyclable, even 50% of new copper is made from recycled copper.

Care

Do not leave out in the weather and keep away from harsh chemicals and household cleaners.

All tools will last for years with correct care, copper will naturally patina over time. Over time a natural patina will emerge which can be enjoyed for its own beauty. The patina will come and go with use in the soil, more use means less patina. If preferred, this patina can be removed with either a fine grade stainless steel wool (copper) or a medium grade scotch-brite (bronze). You can even use a high quality metal polish. Some components are made from recycled materials and may come with slight imperfections
