Quick Overview

The Harvesting History Soil Scoop is an essential container gardening tool. It consists of a 5 ½ inch long, stainless steel, oval bowl which comes to a sharp point. The scoop is 2 ½ inches at its widest point. Each side of the scoop has 1 ½ inches of sharply serrated blade which can cut or saw through most roots. Above the serrations, near the point, the edges are notched so that shallow rooted weeds can be scraped from the soil’s surface. The stainless steel scoop is mounted securely in a 5 inch long rounded hardwood handle by an unusually large and strong ferrule.

The Heirloom Soil Scoop

The design of this tool combines the functionality of several of the most beloved gardening tools: the trowel, hand hoe, cultivator, gardening knife and digging fork. The strong, but light stainless steel scoop with pointed tip and serrated blade allows the tool to score furrows, dig trenches, cut roots and branches, penetrate hard clay soil and excavate soil from holes being dug. It is invaluable in container gardening.
Scoops are ancient tools that have been used for thousands of years. They were originally used for transferring grain, seeds and other horticultural matter from one area to another. This ‘transfering’ capability evolved into a function which allowed the tool to move soil around where plants were crowded and space was confined. This functionality caused many gardeners to adopt the tool for container gardening, and it rapidly became the most valuable tool a container gardener could possess.
The Harvesting History Soil Scoop consists of a 5 ½ inch long, stainless steel, oval bowl which comes to a sharp point. Because of the strength and sharpness of the point, the soil scoop is an excellent digging tool especially in crowded containers. The scoop is 2 ½ inches at its widest point. Each side of the scoop has 1 ½ inches of sharply serrated blade which can cut or saw through most roots. Above the serrations, near the point, the edges are notched so that shallow rooted weeds can be scraped from the soil’s surface. The stainless steel scoop is mounted securely in a 5 inch long rounded hardwood handle by an unusually large and strong ferrule. The ferrule alone is 1 ¼ inches long. This exquisitely designed tool is manufactured entirely in America.
