The Answers You Need
As I was landscaping my house a number of years ago, I planted a double row of honey suckle bushes around the edge of our lawn. When everything was completed it looked real nice. Over the years they became very large, and I decided that the best way to compliment those bushes was with a fence and a flower bed that ended up being 130 feet long. There was only one problem.
I had never planted a flower in my life.
I purchased a large number of annual flowers and some perennials. I started on one end with a small shovel and spade. It did not take long to realize I had gotten into a never ending job of digging hole after hole, and at my age, that just wasn't an option. There had to be an easier way.
With a little ingenuity, I figured out a way to make a sort of post-hole digger where each spade would slide up and down the handle. Instead of pounding it into the ground, you would be able to push down each side with your foot. It would not only speed up the digging but maintain the same diameter and depth for each hole, and save my back.
I had a friend make up a prototype to try out. I was able to dig 23 holes in less than two minutes! This proved to be the most efficient way of planting I had ever seen! Of course, it would only work on a soil that had been tilled or worked up, but after using the prototype for a couple of years some friends convinced me to proceed with a patent. It has proven to be a great labor saver and a tool that is very consistent from hole to hole.
We call it... The Planter Spade.
