Everything old is a good tool again
Another way to be more Earth-friendly with your garden tools is to opt for vintage pieces. The garden hose reel pictured above is Victorian, made in the 1880s (Scroll down the page to find it). It has been restored so you can use it today and you’ll have to wait as it ships from England ($197). The Vintage Garden Store also has a broad selection of antique garden tools. And don’t forget eBay, with a wonderland of old garden tools.
