Scooped edges on the blade of a potting garden trowel A garden trowel works due to its two main components: the blade and the handle.

The blade is made with a scooped edge in order for the trowel to hold soil. This allows it to be used for potting and transplanting plants.

Sharpened edge of a traditional garden trowel The sharpened edges of the blade help the tool to cut through hardened soil, an essential job of a garden trowel.
Garden trowel handle The handle is an important part, allowing the user to lever the blade out of the soil to create a hole. It provides the user with sufficient grip to carry out a large range of tasks, from planting a bulb to transferring compost into a plant pot.
