Ames tools


AMES Tools go as far back as 1774, when Captain John Ames began making America’s first shovels, helping to build America through the centuries. AMES shovels have dug for gold, had expeditions in Antarctica and built at least two of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World!

With nearly 250 years of brand heritage, knowledge and expertise, it makes perfect sense for us to continue the AMES tools legacy, bringing exceptional garden tools to retailers across the UK.
