Tools for Ladies

Ladies Allotment Spades and Forks

When choosing allotment tools ladies should consider two important factors, personal height and strength / stamina.
Your height will dictate the correct size of tools so that you will not get aches and pains from using tools that are too big for your frame. You strength / stamina will dictate if you need lightweight tools, again so you do not end up with aches and pains from wielding heavy tools.
As with all exercise moderation is essential, especially if you are doing the activity for the first time.
The right tools will help but overdoing any manual exercise on the plot will lead to aches and pains or worse!

How to Choose Ladies Tools

For digging tools like spades and forks the 'Border' variety have smaller dimensions and are more suitable for ladies of average height and strength. The table below shows the difference between them.
If tool weight might be an issue then choosing the correct tool material becomes important.
Tools of all types, spade, forks, hoes & rakes are generally made of Stainless Steel or Forged Steel
Stainless Steel is lighter and better suited to ladies, see the table below that compares the two materials.
