Greenman Garden Tools like all the best inspirations/ideas started in a shed!
Working for the family business in the garden tool trade (started by my Grandparents Don and Elieen Winter in 1974) I was fortunate to have access to lots of new shiny garden tools but always found myself reverting to the tools used, owned and made by my grandfather and great grandfather (Arthur Morris), these tools had been handed down to me along with the stories of how they were made, why they were loved, how to look after them and tips for monster tomato’s!
I looked at the tools we were buying and selling and realised there was nothing like these old tools that had lasted at least one lifetime (sometimes more) and were still going strong. I wanted my new tools to be loved and looked after like the old ones, so I looked back to my roots and started making tools like they used to!
Greenman Tools are made using sustainable Ash for the handles and have beautiful stainless or half brite steel heads. These tools have undergone many stages of development and have been put through their paces by various gardening groups and individuals from green-fingered professionals to enthusiastic beginners and we are now proud to shout about their quality, functionality and good looks! In a world where we have become too used to a buy cheap, throw away and buy again society, we hope these tools will last a life time, be cherished and passed down to future generations along with the stories they will create.
We are a true family owned business with a friendly team of staff and customers old and new will always find a warm welcome , cup of tea and often home made cake too when they visit our showroom at Heathfield near Newton Abbot!
Our philosophy has remained the same over the years – that Customer care, personal service and the quality of the products are paramount. With the help of our hard working staff we aspire to fulfil all your needs.
