Why Choose Sneeboer Garden Tools?

We stock Sneeboer tools because they are genuinely the best and not least because our customers demand quality.
They’re also a highly appropriate product relating to  our ‘Buy less – Buy better’ policy.
These garden tools will last for years to come… Tools that have been traditionally well made by craftsmen for over 100 years.
It’s true to say old-fashioned craftsmanship is rare nowadays.
So many products are made mechanically, that’s often faster and cheaper, but not durable. Especially for products that have to take a beating, such as garden tools, this sturdiness is very important though. That’s why gardeners choose Sneeboer & Zn hand forged traditional garden tools, made by craftsmen, with a lifetime warranty.

Famously good tools

We believe that Monty Don knows a good garden tool. That’s why you will often see him using his favourite Sneeboer Planting Trowel, Old Dutch Style – 27cm Ash Handle.

Gardeners will also note the frequent use of a certain Sneeboer Perennial Spade by Adam Frost on the Gardeners’ World programme.

New traditions through innovation

Sneeboer craftsmen give traditional tools a make-over by applying novel ideas. Take for example the Royal Dutch Hoe. Thanks to the teeth at the front, weeds are no longer easily pushed to the side. The ‘hooks’ at the rear eliminate the weeds on the ‘pull’ stroke. As a result, more weeds are removed with the same amount of effort as compared to a regular old-fashioned hoe. By using innovations sneeboer are building new traditions.
