R&D geared toward promotional garden tool sets

New kits contain smaller, more visually appealing implements.



  • Promotional models: Garden tool set manufacturers in China are expanding selections for use as premiums. In line with this, many are coming up with implements 10 to 15 percent smaller than conventional designs. Such pieces are usually packed in carry bags with exterior pockets for the tools, while the main compartment can hold seeds, fertilizers and other supplies.
  • Aesthetic enhancements: For greater visual appeal, makers are opting for corrosion-resistant stainless steel tool heads. In the high end, some enterprises are employing ceramic handles. Wooden types are varnished to highlight the natural grain.
  • Ergonomic upgrades: Tool handles are designed for a natural grip. In the midrange and high end, nonslip TPR grips are utilized. Several upscale pieces are padded with gel for greater comfort.
  • More inclusions: Apart from a fork, trowel and rake, some makers are packing in specialized implements such as transplanters, cultivators and pruning shears to differentiate models. Kneelers, twist tie dispensers and gloves are bundled in a number of kits as well.
