The Gardener's Yard Stick, 52 inches, is truly one-of-a-kind: doubling as an invaluable gardener's tool, and a sturdy walking aid. This useful staff is fashioned from sturdy oak or ash, making it strong and highly durable. Each Gardener's Yard Stick is outfitted with a strong metal tip that provides a firm, secure grip while trekking through your yard or garden. The tip is also perfect for marking plant locations in the garden or flower bed. Additionally, the Gardener's Yard Stick comes with a handy 36-inch ruler printed on the side of the shaft -- perfect for precision placement of plants in your garden. After each piece of ash or oak is carefully chosen, prepared, cut, and sanded, each staff is stained a beautiful tan, magnifying the wood's natural grain pattern. Finally, every stick is sprayed with a protective clear coat lacquer. The result is a smooth finish that highlights the wood's intrinsic beauty. The finished staff is a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted walking stick that is both sturdy and attractive.
