The idea for Radius Garden grew out of some blisters, sore wrists, and frustrating experiences with low quality gardening tools that broke in a single season. It was more of a sudden inspiration than a business plan. It was a lightbulb flashing "Why not make better garden tools that won't hurt you?"
At Radius Garden™ we have ignored tradition and nonsense, re-thinking every aspect of every tool we make so you can have a better, more comfortable gardening experience.
I founded Radius Garden because it bothers me that traditional garden tools force you to use your hands and wrists in ways that can cause injuries. Four out of five gardeners are injured every year while gardening. OSHA says 3/4 of all cumulative stress injuries are to the wrist and hand. Many, if not most, of these injuries can be prevented by better tool design.
Most manufacturers use "ergonomic" to describe the same old tools they've been selling for decades. They add some bumps or contours to the handle, or make the grip fatter. But, the only thing that's really different is the packaging with the word "ergonomic."
We call this "ergo-nonsense." Do Not be fooled by it!
We believe that truly advanced ergonomic design ignores tradition and uses the most current research into human factors and tool usage. Our Patented, Natural Radius Grip™, maximizes your power and comfort while minimizing hand and wrist stress. Our sleek, multi-functional blades make home and professional gardening easier and more enjoyable. We started by inventing the "Natural Radius Grip" for hand tools, a handle that sets your wrist and hand in a natural, neutral position allowing you to garden more without injury. Next, we perfected the "O" handle that makes longer tools safer and easier to use. Now, with critical acclaim and and sincere endorsements from both experts and everyday customers we continue to innovate and introduce new, high quality garden tools so you can garden more and hurt less.
We make garden tools for women. We make garden tools for people with arthritis. We make garden tools for life!
Once you try our products, you will never go back to traditional tools.
