Sneeboer FAQ's

We haven’t seen anything that beats the quality of a Sneeboer tool. You only have to hold one of these garden tools and the quality is immediately apparent.

When using Sneeboer garden tools gardening really does become a pleasure!

We give information in our Sneeboer Tool product pages to help you decide which tool is right for the job that you will be doing with it, but should you find that you can’t decide we welcome emails or telephone calls where we can offer friendly help and advice. Being gardeners ourselves we can often relate to our own usage and experience.

This is a question we are often asked and it’s an easy one to answer because it really depends on which job we need to do in the garden. Every tool has its specific purpose, sometimes we do find we use certain tools in the garden for multiple tasks making them doubly useful. But there is nothing like knowing when you are gardening that you have the perfect tool for the job, in itself that makes gardening more of a pleasure and Sneeboer tools are certainly a pleasure to use.

We advise reading the product description on our product page and if not sure it’s quite right for you then just email or call us for our helpful advice. We like to chat all things Sneeboer and gardening.
