With a little help from stainless steel spades, rakes, and shears! Stainless steel is the blossoming choice for garden tools because it is resistant to rust, long lasting and incredibly durable for those weeds that are a bit tough to dig out.
Stainless steel is also favoured for its visual appearance in the garden and is often used for water features, sculptures and even sun dials. Such features emphasise the reflectivity of stainless steel by using a bright mirror polished finish.
The Chelsea Flower Show is celebrating its 100 year anniversary in 2013 alongside stainless steel celebrating 100 years since its discovery in Sheffield.
