Leonard All Steel Nursery Spades

Dig into the toughest jobs!

We make our Leonard All-Steel Nursery Spades using high-quality steel. We equip these spades with orange powder-coated handles. You choose from either a straight or a D-grip handle. Next, we weld these handles to tapered steel blades. These blades feature a flat back and a turned foot step. Choose from either a 13-inch or a 15-inch long blade below.

We pre-drill holes into the foot step of these spades. These holes make it easy to attach one of our Rubber Foot Pads. Some models include a foot pad. See the grid below for details.

Use Leonard All-Steel Nursery Spades for nearly any nursery or landscaping task. Choose the 12-inch blade for general use. The 15-inch blade provides extra reach when you need to dig deep. The flattened back prevents the buildup of soil. The turned foot step gives you a larger surface area which allows for increased control when digging.

Leonard All-Steel Nursery Spades provide strength and durability without the added weight. This combination allows you and your crew to tackle nearly any job with minimal fatigue. Dig into the toughest jobs with your Leonard All-Steel Spade knowing that we back this tool with our lifetime warranty!

WARNING: All-steel shovels and spades should not be used in areas where underground electric lines, wires, or cables may be present.

Review on Leonard all steel spade

I'm a tropical flower grower of Heliconias & Gingers from HI wrote (February 26, 2018):

Like the all metal spade

Serious shovel

Tyler from NC wrote (January 09, 2018):

I got this shovel mostly for transplanting trees shrubs and perennials. Now this is the shovel I reach for when the diggin gets tough. This powers through roots like a boss and cuts through heavy mountain clay like buttah. I still prefer a lighter wooden handle shovel for everyday digging, but when you need it, this spade is a life saver. I just got done digging a French drain and it was great for smoothing the sides and bottom of the trench and the narrower blade made it easier to work in a deep narrow trench. This spade will last forever! I look forward to transplanting some shrubs without mutilating any roots or breaking any wooden handles.

Too Heavy

Customer from NJ wrote (January 09, 2018):

While the design may be versitile and good for edging, the weight of this shovel is far too heavy ... I simply cannot use it even though I workout at the gym and have considerable strength for a women. I would opt to send it back if it were not for the cost of return shipping.

Nursery Spade

M. Jones from TX wrote (August 01, 2017):

I needed a tool that was much sturdier the what's available at local big box stores. The ones I used to buy failed within a day or two. These A.M. Leonard spades should last a great deal longer.

The best spade I own,

Cecilia Gunther from IL wrote (June 19, 2017):

I have wwoofers working on my farm and though wonderful they are tough on equipment. Every year someone would break the handle on a spade. A good deep strong spade is critical in a garden environment. I searched for a spade that was made with one piece of steel and here it is - to my mind the perfect tool. Keep it clean. Keep it sharp. I have two now and will buy another next summer, As a shallow aside i love the red handle - easy to see over the weeds!!
