‘Tis the season to dig and plant, but if you’re the sort of person who thinks “gardening” is synonymous with “aching,” today’s Grommet might change your mind.

Meet Radius Garden tools, the only ones with a patented ergonomic grip, dubbed the Natural Radius Grip (NRG). What’s NRG? Sure, it looks cool, with those rounded handles, but NRG isn’t about looks. The unique curvature yields two distinct benefits. First, the design is wrist-neutral, which means more comfort for everyone, and particularly for those with carpal tunnel or arthritis. Second, the ergonomic grip actually provides greater leverage, which means you can yield more force with less strain on your hand and wrist. Each Radius NRG hand tool — trowel, transplanter, cultivator and weeder — also features an aluminum/magnesium alloy blade that provides plenty of strength without a lot of weight.

Radius founder Bruce Baker says that garden tools had always been designed for the convenience of the manufacturer rather than the comfort and safety of the user. But with Radius design, the goal is productive, pain-free gardening. That sounds great to us.
