A.M. Leonard Ergonomic Bypass Pruner (#1234): Product Review


If you’re in the market for a quality bypass hand pruner at a competitive price, then the A.M. Leonard Ergonomic Bypass Pruner (model #1234) is a definite contender. You’re not going to get the highest quality or features of the most expensive competitors, but what you will get is a pruner that if taken care of properly will likely last a lifetime.

A.M. Leonard Four Wheel Hose Cart with Flat Free Tires (Model # FHW300): Product Review


I would recommend this hose cart for anyone who needs to move garden hoses around a larger yard. It truly is a fantastic piece of gear. It’s sturdy, stable, highly maneuverable and simple to use.

Plus, there’s a handy basket to carry hose nozzles and small gardening tools. Continue Reading

This is a quality pruner that doesn't skimp on materials and workmanship. It's sturdy, comfortable and makes clean cuts in woody stems and branches. The few very minor drawbacks are a handle locking mechanism that could get in the way of the two handles closing, the fact that it only cuts through ¾ inch wood (rather than the 1 inch diameter claimed) and that it’s intended for woody stems only.
