Thousands of gardeners all over America are discovering the Longnecker Trowel They are finding that it is easy to use, quality constructed, and guaranteed not to break in normal use. Whether you are a professional landscaper or home gardener, you'll find the Longnecker the most versatile and easy to use trowel on the market. This is one tough trowel that will give many years of satisfaction.

The original idea behind the Longnecker Trowel was to make a hole in the ground. It seemed like such a simple concept, but in 1988 I was having to use mattocks to plant in this red Gibsonville North Carolina clay.

So I asked a friend who could work with steel to make a trowel, but one on a hammer-like handle. What we came up with was the prototype of the Longnecker Trowel.  This trowel has now been refined and is in production right here in North Carolina and is being used by gardeners all over the United States.


After 20 years of production and used by gardeners everywhere, it's still the only trowel that out digs Sophie!

"I bought a hand weeder and trowel from (Longnecker Tools) about 5 years ago, and from that day on, these gardening tools became my constant and reliable companions."

I've got to tell you that we just love using the trowels we purchased at the Burlington NC Herb festival. What great gardening tools!

I have much enjoyed using your trowel, I have replanted that front garden over the past month and much of it was done w/the trowel (the best part is getting up!)

Thank you very much for making a high quality, versatile product! It truly has enhanced my gardening abilities ...

...  We are now planting 25 to 30 more flowers an hour than with our old tools. When you're planting 5,000 to 6,000 flowers at a time, you're saving time. ---

-- After a few minutes of planting, he said how great that trowel was. --

    ---I couldn't have been more thrilled. Your tool is everything you said it would be. It was easy, it was convenient, it cut right through untilled ground and I was done in no time. I would recommend it to anyone ---

The leverage that you get with the trowel is a wonderful help in digging any size hole and indeed
the handle has 'helped me up' on more than one occasion.
