Garden hoes are a staple tool for weeding, tilling, planting and landscaping. If you are in the market for a hoe, you’ll find a wide array of choices for every need. Here are some basic descriptions of several popular hoes to guide your selection based on the task at hand.

The UnionTools Scuffle Hoe is growing in popularity. This hoe with a rotating head is operated with a push-pull action and allows you to get under the dirt and slice roots below the surface. This sharp, double-edged hoe is a versatile weeding and edging tool that cuts roots deeper than other types of hoes.

Another popular hoe is the warren hoe, easily recognized by its triangular shaped head. It can be used for traditional weeding or turned on its edge to make furrows for planting seeds. You’ll find most warren hoes with an approximately 4-inch x 7-inch head and 54 inch handle.

A choice suitable for multiple garden tasks is the hoe-cultivator, which gives you a multipurpose weeding and cultivation tool. You will find both two-pronged and three pronged and cultivator heads on this tool with overall had size ranging from 5 inches by 7 inches to 4 inches by 10 inches. Tool selection depends on comfort in handling. See all our UnionTools Hoe Selection.

Hoes can also be used for mortar mixing. These hoes are easily recognized by their perforated heads/blades and extra long handles ranging from 52 inches to 66 inches. Check out our Razor-Back Hoe Selection with blades ranging from 4 by 7 inches to 10 by 6 inch. Your choice will depend on the amount of concrete to be mixed and the size of your mixing container.
