Today I used several weeding tools to maintain a garden overgrown with weeds.
Truth be told it was my fault.
Last fall I over seeded the lawn and some seed found its way into the beds. The gardens were a mix of grass, dandelions and chickweed.
I spent the afternoon ‘hacking’ away at the weeds with my weeding tools. I’d like to share the method to my madness with you.
Weeding Tools Recommendations
First, I went through the beds with my weeding knife (Far right) and pulled the dandelions. If you cut dandelions with a hoe the long tap-root will grow back. You have to dig down and remove the root.
Next, I went through the front of the bed with my grub hoe (Second from left). The grub hoe packs more of a punch than a hoe. It’s perfect for removing heavy weeds and sod.
A manure fork is the perfect tool to load weed piles into a wheelbarrow. A manure fork has sharp tines and light weight. I recommend you buy a 5 tine manure fork.
I hope you’ll try one of the weeding tools above to improve your productivity when weeding gardens.
