A Copley businesswoman has created a line of gardening tools designed for women’s hands.
Pat Taylor developed a love of gardening from her mother, who dug in the soil with tools that didn’t fit her small frame. To remedy that problem, Taylor called on knowledge she’d gained from her years as an employee and more recently co-owner of Barberton’s Wright Tool Co. to start Patricia Ann Tools, a division of Wright.
The company makes a set comprising a trowel, cultivator, soil knife, weeder and pruner, along with a sun hat. All the tools have ergonomic grips and heavy-duty stainless steel blades or prongs. The set sells for $89.95.
A tool caddy that fits a 5-gallon bucket is also available for $29.95.
Patricia Ann Tools can be ordered at http://patriciaann.com. Shipping is extra.
