Things to Think About Before Buying Weeding Tools

You may limit weed growth in the garden by utilizing dense planting schemes, and cover the soil using a weed suppressing membrane and thick mulch layer, yet you may guarantee there’ll always be some portion of the garden which needs weeding.

As weeding often is hard work, manufacturers of garden tools especially tools for weeding, attempt to help by providing a broad array of gadgets, but, if you’re able to, try before buying to save money and time.


Utilizing a hoe will remove shallow rooted annual weeds, yet will cut deep rooted perennials off which will continuously grow and they’re best removed with a specialized weeding tool. Hoeing will improve aeration, drainage, and the spreading of nutrients inside the soil, it additionally helps condition the soil. Full length hoes may take lots of strength to operate, yet will save you bending; therefore, search for lighter weight models.

Hand tools

Hand tools, like forks and trowels, are regularly used inside the garden so it is important that you select the ideal one for you. Hand tools that have longer handles are helpful for lighter weeding and soil cultivating and are especially recommended if you cannot bend easily or garden sitting down.

Specialized weeding tools

There will include multiple models in the marketplace that claim to be specialized weeding tools, yet there only are a few that we’re able to recommend.

Below are some points to keep in mind: most specialized weeding tools operate on a single weed at a time; therefore, weeding a large space may be time consuming; so try to use the tool prior to buying or purchase on recommendation from additional gardeners or read tool reviews in unbiased and professional publications.

Arm support and fist grip

If you have a weak grip or use one hand, you may discover it easier to utilize long handled tools such as hoes if they’re fitted with an additional arm support and fist grip. A fist grip will have a comfortable, wide grip and will sit at right angles to its handle. An arm support will slot into the grip’s end. If you utilize two hands, you may fit another fist grip farther down the handle then hold it with the other hand.
