Stirrup Hoe

The Fantastic Garden Weeder

The Stirrup Hoe is my favorite garden weeder. If weeding the garden isn't your favorite chore, maybe it's your hoe. Going green at home's recommendation, is this sturdy tool.

The Highly Recommended Stirrup Hoe

Also called a dutch hoe, hula hoe and double action hoe.

The best kept secret in garden care, this hoe is a form of scuffle hoe.

Scuffle hoes have a blade that lies parallel to the soil and by dragging the blade under the soil you cut the tops right off those pesky weeds.

The fact that the ends of the blade (on a stirrup hoe) curl up, allows you to get in close to your plantings without damaging the stalks with the blade edge.

Weeding might just become your favorite garden chore, hopefully you don't get too attached to it, because you'll be spending a lot less time doing it.

You'd think, with the benefits of this hoe type that they'd be on every street corner, but surprisingly they're as hard to find now as they were in 1996 when we finally went to the city (Calgary) after looking in every small town hardware and farm store in our area.

The flexrake, with the wooden handle, is by far the most highly rated hoe of this type at Amazon.

Check out some typical Amazon customer comments.

"This tool works great, saves time, and virtually eliminates bending over to weed!"

"This hoe is fantastic! Now that I have one, I find myself wondering why I waited so long to get one."
