About the materials
Copper is a pure metal which has been found to benefit soils in agriculture. Small amounts may contribute to better nutrient uptake and moisture retention. In addition, copper does not rust so typical oxidative effects do not rob soils of nitrogen and other nutrients.
Bronze is a high percentage copper alloy with increased toughness and lighter weight. With many of the benefits of copper it also has a lower coefficient of friction meaning it can be easily pushed into the soil.
Brass is another copper alloy used for handles and other finishing touches.
