Win The Most Amazing Ladder Ever!
When Susanne Osmond, one of our favourite garden designers and landscapers, told me she was importing “amazing” tripod ladders from Japan I thought to myself “How different can a ladder be? My step ladders work just fine.” Now that I have been to the top of one of her Hasegawa 8 foot platform tripods I realize there is no comparison between the rickety ladders I’ve been climbing up and down all my life and this magnificent, shining creation from Japan. We have it on display right now at the nursery so you can come and see it.
AND! You can enter a contest right now to win it!

Hasegawa Platform Ladders
Description: Specialty pruning ladder, made by Hasegawa from Japan, well known throughout Japan for the safety, stability and practicality of the tripod design. Ask any gardener or nurseryman in Japan which ladders they use and they all say the same thing: Hasegawa.
Essential for large topiary and pruning jobs, hedges too. Also ideal for orchard work, both for pruning and picking. Wide base, no wobble and remarkably light! Made from hollow aluminum, they have a wide, stable base; deep, comfortable steps and work platforms; clever adjustable third leg that allows you to work on sloping or uneven ground.
Their many sensible safety features include a chain that attaches the 3rd leg to the main ladder frame so that it will never slide away or splay out; claw feet grip the ground and optional rubber “boots” cover the feet to allow for use on paved surfaces.
The platform model provides extra support and comfort that is ideal for jobs where you may be standing on the ladder for longer periods of time. Or if you’re not so comfortable on a ladder. The platform model allows you to lean into the “crow’s nest” without getting bruised shins, and you can hang onto the top rail or hang your tools or picking bag on it.
And the weblink for all the info about the platform model.
