Thanks for taking the time to read my article on the best professional garden fork. These are forks that landscapers and commercial gardeners will prefer to use.

They will also be the choice of gardeners who take a lot of pride in their gardens, and want to own and use the best gardening tools available on the UK market.

Needless to say this type of fork will be made to last, and as such they must be heavy duty, tough and durable. They must also be comfortable to use, and be able to stand up to daily use.

There are a lot of different types of forks available on the market which include:

  • Digging forks
  • Pitch forks
  • Border forks

What Professional Garden Forks Do You Need?

We believe the term "professional" here is a tad misleading. It gives the impression that the type of garden fork that you are looking at, is one that would be used by commercial landscapers, and by expert gardeners.

When we looked at the product names of garden forks with the word professional in that name, we were surprised to find that these, generally speaking did not get very good online reviews.

We did however do a bit of digging around (pardon the pun) and we did discover just a few that are worth your consideration. We have listed those below.

Most professional landscapers will use machinery to do most of the heavy lifting, but they will also use a good quality and durable digging fork, a border fork, and also a good quality hand style garden fork for the more delicate jobs or for weeding.

Professional Gardening Tools

Landscapers and professional gardeners use a wide range of tools to get gardening tasks done quickly. These include:

  • Tillers and cultivators
  • Rotavators
  • Mowers
  • Hand Tools

Their business does depend on those getting gardening tasks done quickly. The garden fork is one of those hand tools that will be used a lot, and they do need their tools to be able to stand up to the rigours of everyday use.

They tend to use the better and higher end gardening brands like:

  • Kent and Stowe
  • Fiskars
  • Wilkinson Sword

Those usually cost a lot more than general purpose gardening tools. In almost every case your choice of professional gardening fork will come down to:

  • What you can afford or are willing to pay
  • The brand and type of fork you like to use the best

Ideally if you can get to a gardening centre, then you can try out the different options and simply see which one you like the best.


I am someone who enjoys a little gardening. Now I am not someone who spend hours in the garden, but I do like both my front and back gardens to look really nice. Well kept lawns, neatly trimmed hedges, and borders filled with plants, make a huge difference, to how your property looks.
