Tools on Tuesday: the Golden Gark

Tuesday, June 19, 2012 @ 10:06 AM

We’ve found this rather wonderful garden tool and thought you would like to hear all about it: it’s called the Golden Gark. It’s not on our list of must have starter garden kit because it’s something totally new. But once you’ve had one of these, we think you really won’t be able to do without it ever again.

The Golden Gark

Wait til you hear just what it does – we love it! It’s really useful for all sorts of gardening jobs: it’s multi-purpose in that it rakes, sifts, shovels and spreads.

We’ve used the Gark to collect leaves from our flower beds for making leaf mould; keeping gravel paths clean and neat; raking up our mown grass; clearing away pruning waste and fallen fruit; and at the allotment for sprinkling compost and lifting potatoes. And all without bending or straining. It’s absolutely brilliant!

We’ve found that it makes such a difference to what are otherwise tedious chores. It’s very light and easy to use, but at the same time strong enough for your purpose. What it’s great at is doing lots of jobs in one fell swoop: after hoeing, the Gark is great for gathering the debris in one scoop, sieving the soil back, while leaving the leaves in the Gark to be shovelled away. Job done!

If you don’t believe me, just watch this – it can do almost anything apart from cook the dinner, in fact I’m thinking of using it for tidying up the kids bedrooms :-)

    Where can I guy one of these in the USA or order online. It would seem to
    be too expensive to order from the UK. We saw it originally on QVC but they no longer carry this item. Thank you. Robin

    I purchased this product in 2013 for use to clean up fallen leaves, worked well….when complete cleaned it off dried it as I do with all my equipment the stored it in my garden shed, along with all my garden tools.

    Come this year, Autumn leaves fall again, so thought go get the new Gark… lifted it out of the shed gave it a quick once over looked fine, started to rake up ,……………………………SNAP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the Gark broke into two parts, right where the shaft meets the main Gark body.. I contacyed the manufacturer in Holland, who asked me to send in photographs for verification of fault .. two days later they contacted me to verify that it was indeed a manufacturing fault and it would be replaced under warranty, from the manufacturer direct….. almost 3 Months later , no contact, no Gark replacement , and more annoying deliberately avoiding ignoring e-mails and messages…… this product was purchased to replace my 15 year old rake which served my well, when the Gark arrived I put my old rake in the waste bin…. Sadly I wish I had not…. At almost £40, I was expecting more than 1 year from a product that gives a 5 year warranty. The most annoying part is the company acknowledged the fault was with the manufacturing, and are now stepping away from there obligation to replace a faulty item …good product but not worth the money if it has to be replaced each year, there was no abuse of the product , and looked after as all my tools are… be warned NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE, and company are negligent to the extreme…
