Weeding is an aspect of gardening that can’t be ignored, and a hand weeder is the tool for the job. There’s no “best” hand weeder, though. It’s more about what works for you. If you’re looking to dig up a large number of tough weeds, a claw weeder is the best fit. For targeting individual weeds, look for a narrow and sharp fork for snagging lone weeds. Circular hoe hand weeders can isolate weeds without damaging nearby plants. If you suffer from back or knee problems, consider a standing weeder. Aluminum and steel plated chrome are common and durable fork materials. The handle is the most likely part to show wear, so look for comfortable and durable handles that provide good grip and leverage.
