Weeds and Hoes

It's that time of year when weeds try to muscle in on our lawns and gardens. We give you some ideas on how to keep them at bay.

Hoes to consider:
Diamond Hoe: Diamond shape head with four sharpened edges cuts weeds on both forward and back strokes.

Hoop Hoe: The sharp steel blade skims horizontally below the soil surface, slicing through weed roots while leaving the soil in place.

Cobra Hoe: It's best for tight places and is like having a very strong finger to pull up weeds.
