Outdoors: PKS Copper Gardening Tools
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Spotted on Terrain's newly revamped web site: handmade Copper Garden Tools from Austrian company PKS. In addition to good looks, it turns out that copper has some merits worth noting: it increases water retention thereby improving the soil, and since it is naturally rust proof, it also reduces friction with the soil, making it easier to garden. Who knew? Above: Orion Long Handled Spade with copper head and turned lime wood handle ; $258. Above: Perseus Long Handled Rake with copper head and turned lime wood handle; $198.
