Some people love weeding. They love the meditative state of cautious attention to detail, happily spending hours carefully identifying each tiny shoot before deciding 'Should it stay or should it go?' We know blogger Andrew O'Brien is a big fan of the mindful task - read his words of wisdom on three of his favourite weeding tools.
We have to admit, however, that we are a little less enthusiastic about weeding. In fact, to be frank, the less time we spend doing it, the better. We'd rather be doing something a little more creative, and a little less arduous. That's why we're always working to create tools which make jobs like weeding faster and easier.
Our new Express Hoe is one such tool, designed to take the hard work out of weeding. It features a pivoting blade which finds the perfect angle for biting into the soil, for effortless weeding.
Sliding easily through the soil on both push and pull strokes, Express Hoe swings through weeding in half the time, allowing you to move quickly onto other tasks – or to preserve energies for more appealing activities than weeding!
Express Hoe’s doubled-edged blade has been created in high carbon steel for optimum sharpness and edge retention, and is very thin to move easily through the soil with minimum effort, chopping smoothly through weed roots and shoots.
When we designed this tool, we put a lot of time and effort into getting the angle of the blade just right. It really does bite into the soil in both directions to dramatically speed up weeding; unlike some similar hoes where the cut is easy in one direction, but the tool stops dead on the return.
If you like the sound of cutting your weeding time in half, you can watch Express Hoe in action in a short video.
So this season, save your time and your energy, and let Express Hoe make short work of weeding.
