A garden hoe is primarily used to work on the very top layer of soil to remove small weeds – they are not as effective on larger weeds. Experienced users can also employ the tool to shape soil and harvest crops. There are three basic types of hoes: a draw hoe works while being pulled, a push hoe works while being pushed, and a scuffle hoe works in both directions. Additionally, some hoes have a claw on the back to help with the tougher weeds. A good hoe features reliable construction so the head doesn't loosen from the handle. Look for a comfortable handle with a long reach and take note if the blade ships sharp or if you will need to sharpen it after use.
