However, we overcame this and used nearly all of the tools in the Italian Garden. The edging shears were a dream and there are sharp, straight lines around all the parterres (worth having a look at), hand forks and trowels used to clear weeds around the little hedges surrounding the parterres and scratchers used to clear up the whole lot. Spades and forks used for planting plants in the parterres, I think the only things not used were the brushes. Smooth running wheelbarrows with no squeaking. Very exciting day. Thanks to Jonathan for looking after us and getting all this amazing gear. We are very spoilt.
