Best Rated Garden Fork 

Thanks for taking the time to read my article on the best rated garden fork. As you may be aware there are a lot of garden forks available on the UK market. They come in slightly different shapes and sizes, however their general purpose is simply to help dig up and turn over the earth.

Many people buy a garden fork, and some of those buyers (1 in 100) take the time to leave a rating and a review at the website where they made their purchase. Those can be very useful, as the buyers have had time to use the product and then taken their time to leave a review.

Here at our website, we check those out, and as part of our detailed research, we identify those garden forks that get the highest ratings.

So, in this article, we are going to focus on the best buyer rated garden forks, that are currently available on the UK market.

Quick Explanation of Buyer Ratings

The ratings vary in structure from website to website. Generally speaking though most use a star rating. If you think of Amazon, that is a good example. They have a 1-5 star rating, with half stars in between. 

Other websites will use a 1-10 style rating. The principle is however the same.

One other part of customer ratings that is important to understand is the number of ratings or reviews that are left for a particular product, such as a garden fork. The number of products is a good indication of how well a product sells.

As an example a fork with say 10 reviews, has probably sold around 1,000 units. A fork with 400 reviews has sold around 40,000 units. It is a big difference. Ratings change over time, so we always look for steady selling and maintaining a high level of buyer satisfaction.

Ideally what you want to see is a garden fork with over 400 reviews and a high buyer rating of 90% (4.5 stars) or above. That way you know it is a good seller and that buyers really like the quality and the value for money.

  • 1 star - 20% satisfaction
  • 2 stars - 40% satisfaction
  • 3 stars - 60% buyer satisfaction
  • 3.5 stars - 70% buyer satisfaction
  • 4 stars 80% buyer satisfaction
  • 4.5 stars - 90% buyer satisfaction
  • 5 stars 100% buyer satisfaction

We don't recommend anything less than 4 stars (80% buyer satisfaction) and ideally as close to 100% as possible.

In other words they won't bend, break or rust. You can easily tell from the ratings which fork is going to be the best and as I have said before, buyers experience is the best measurement of any tool.

It is all too tempting to buy a cheap product, but our experience tells us, that something really cheap will only ever cause you a great deal of frustration. They will bend, break and in the long term cost you money.

The forks shown on our list, all have plenty of UK buyers, and they all get very good solid buyer reviews.

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.
