Easy to Use Shovel?
Hello all. I started gardening this year, and it has been a wonderful experience. I've started a rose garden, a bulb garden, and a compost pile.
One major problem I've encountered is finding a shovel that meets my needs. I'm not physically strong, and most shovels are much too heavy. I've tried a child's shovel, but it doesn't have a bend in the shovel head, so I have to bend low for each scoop, and it is hard on my back. I need an ultra-lightweight shovel with a large enough head to scoop compost materials. My dear husband bought me a fiberglass-handled one, but the handle was too fat for my hands to hold comfortably. Does anyone have any suggestions of a brand of shovel that might work for me? I would appreciate any ideas where I could order such a shovel. Are there shopping sites that cater to special needs gardeners?
Thank you for your help.
