Built Tough

Barebones Living believes in building quality gardening tools, and their durable gear—like a spade, hoe, the multi-functional Ultimate Tool, and Harvesting and Gathering Bag—can easily handle digging in the dirt and many more tough jobs.

Founder Robert Workman applies the Shaker philosophy (creating things that are equal parts necessary, useful, and beautiful) to his well-made tools. His designs have a minimal-but-functional feel, and are made with strong, long-lasting materials like tempered stainless steel and walnut to handily dig, weed, till, and tackle other dirty jobs without wearing down.

Barebones Living was created to support Robert’s own non-profit. They now give back to marginalized people—from providing shelter after natural disasters to helping fund mobile medical clinics. For all the good these tools do in your garden, they’re also making a positive impact around the world.
