Best weeding tool ever! ~ reviewed by d2w
I saw this being used in Scotland for weeding between flagstones and in a crushed grante flower bed. The angle is perfect for shallow root weeds. Makes weeding my flower beds much easier.
Great hoe !!! ~ reviewed by Demelza
Excellent weeding tool! Works better than I ever imagined it could. Much easier to use than a regular hoe & much more efficient. Very good quality. Sturdy & well built.
Back saver ~ reviewed by amwarner4u
It really works. Easier than a garden hoe. The long handle save the lean forward and save the back. I recommend this. It is new to me. I found the idea in a garden club forum.
Arrived in good time, very long handle ~ reviewed by Paul
Arrived in good time, very long handle which I actually like since I can hoe across my deep beds from one side. Not enough soil drops through the hole so tends to push a small heap in front of it. Not exactly the idea behind a dutch hoe but if you work the hoe towards you using short strokes, it does the job. The edge is not sharpened at all and I had trouble with it in stiff soil. So I used a grinder to sharpen it from the top edge and it works fine. It is quite narrow but this allows one to hoe between close rows and between plants, probably not the hoe to use on larger areas. It now does the job for which I purchased it but I had to work at it.
Only good for larger weed areas that are level ~ reviewed by Gail Bieber
Only good for larger weed areas that are level. Not as sharp as I expected it to be. Still trying it in different areas of my yard.
Good quality, disappointing edge – not sharp ~ reviewed by books are friends
The quality of the hoe is fine, but as another reviewer commented, the edge isn’t sharp. It won’t cut the weeds and I’m going to have to get it sharpened to a cutting edge. The hose is shipped with a protective cover that makes you think it’s nice and sharp, but it’s a blunt edge of about 3/32 and it really doesn’t cut well. If I push it hard enough I can tear the roots, but it’s not what I envisioned (and I’ve used these kinds of hoes before). Somewhat disappointing that I can’t use it right out of the package.
Very sturdy and easy to use. ~ reviewed by Dave123
Very sturdy construction, we’ll balanced and easy to use. Had a cheep one made of pressed metal prior to this but it bent easily in our clay soil. This one copes very well. It was extremely well packed and arrived before the projected delivery date.
Excellent tool for the serious gardener. ~ reviewed by William C. Robinson
Recommended as a must have tool in a leading serious gardening book. Works well and easily used, but does require a different approach to using the hoe.
Dutch hoe ~ reviewed by Jo-Anne Riddle
Works great. Really makes fast work of weeds. Recommend it versus the hoes we normally use. I was surprised how well and quickly it worked.
