Using our “groundbuster” spade

While the soil is still moist from the Winter rains it’s a great time to plant new trees and shrubs. They will be less stressed and you will dig more easily. The “D Handle” gives you power as you strike the earth and helps absorb the shock sent straight back at you from the impact. I deliberately made the blade quite short, but long enough to break the surface of the soil. A single push of your foot should allow you to go to maximum depth without multiple attempts. Your effort is spent breaking roots and compacted soil not shovelling. The pointy bit helps as well with rooting out dandelion and thistle roots
