Alas, An Ergonomic Shovel

Alas, An Ergonomic Shovel

While working in his parents backyard, Bosse Tools founder Stephen Walden labored through hours of back & arm strain & thought there had to be a better way! He decided to combine the traditional shovel with the ease of use found in a hedge trimmer. The result is a tool that improves posture, reduces back strain, relieves wrist pain, & minimizes shoulder injury. All thanks to the addition of a revolutionary rotating center handle. Check it out & pre-order your’s here because this concept is soon to be a reality!

Bee Beautiful!

Bee Beautiful!

The Ru urban beehive concept focuses on aesthetics to encourage the reintegration of bees into city environments. The idea is simple: by enhancing the aesthetic, a deeper emotional connection can be created with an object that has stereotypically negative connotation. With its sculptural form, the Ru hive might improve human acceptance and raise awareness to the recent bee population decline. The beehive would be installed in parks, on greenhouse roofs or other predetermined urban areas.

PlanTree - The Plant Tree

PlanTree – The Plant Tree

The award winning PlanTree is exactly as it sounds- a tree of plants! This hydroponic plant cultivator system was designed for compact urban spaces where full-fledged gardens aren’t possible. The vertical system allows nutrients and water to circulate through each plant-containing pod as they trickle down. Users can have fresh, organic veggies no matter where they live.

Inside each avocado is a large seed that you can plant to grow a brand new tree! The Avocado Sprouter serves as the perfect platform for the unique rooting process. It’s crucial that the bottom 1/4th of the seed is held underwater for weeks in order for roots to sprout, so the design ensures the seed is suspended perfectly each time. After you see roots grow, you can transfer it to a pot or outdoors for your own home-grown houseplant and eventually a fruiting tree!

Harvest And Cook Fresh Food

Harvest And Cook Fresh Food

Ask any home gardener and they will tell you that there is no greater joy than growing and cooking with fresh home-grown produce. To cater to this joy we have the Harvest Matching concept. It is a device that allows you to monitor your plants and then informs you when the produce is ripe and ready to cook. A helpful Smartphone app gives you details on the growth process and even suggests recipes. Powered with a solar panel, the gardening pot is pretty self-sufficient.

Boskke Sky Planters Now in Clear

Boskke Sky Planters Now in Clear

If you haven’t yet been turned on to the Boskke Sky Planters, let me shed some light. See what I did there? Shed some light? Plants? Photosynthesis? Anywho – the original Sky Planters allowed any keen gardener short on space to literally hang all their plants. Now it’s available in clear; perfectly suited for plants with roots designed for sun exposure like orchids. It’s also interesting because you can kind of see how it all works. So deceptively simple and beautiful. Currently available in small and medium sizes. Gots to get me some.

The Sweet Pot is an innovative plant pot design where the bottom basin acts as a growth patch for extra grass. Essentially the design takes care of excessive watering and drainage at the same time. More like the extra water acts like a feed for the grass patch at the bottom, hence no drains required. The Sweet Slide is a tool that aids watering the plant comfortably.
