Grafa Garden was founded in 2011 by Travis. This passionate gardener has developed little by little his own collection of gardening tools with an attention to the visual appeal.
The tools were specifically designed with organic and biodynamic gardening principles in mind because copper does not rust and its properties are found to promote growth and nutrient uptake.
Grafa garden tools are handmade locally in Melbourne’s inner west, using readily available copper, bronze and hardwood timber materials. Much of the copper is up-cycled, reclaimed tube collected from metal recycling centers around Melbourne. It is infinitely recyclable, even 50% of new copper is made from recycled copper.
The Spotted Gum comes from native, renewable, sustainably managed and harvested forests on the East Coast of Australia.
The copper gardening tools are handmade by the Australian Grafa Garden. He was inspired by the work of the Austrian naturalist movement, which showed that using copper tools could benefit soils in agriculture : it does not rust and promote growth and nutrient uptake. The timber is kiln dried for strength and stability; then oiled with UV protection.
