I wanted the longer handle but mis-ordered and now I am glad I did as this is the exact length I need to reach the back of my flower gardens where sneaky weeds are always trying to grow. Of course I haven't actually been able to use it yet as the weather has not been favorable but am looking forward to doing so soon.

I had seen commercial landscapers gettin after if with mini-mattock style planters. I don't have to plant that fast, but often there's a crunch, rain coming, getting dark, it's nice to have a tool that will go wide open. There are several black cast looking planters on the market, but none of them are as serious as this boron steel forging. This thing will dig rock out of the ground and just ring real pretty while doing it.

The tool is not heavy enough to do much. I was disappointed with the light weight of the tool and the handle. It would probably be fine if you lived whith sandy soil but it is not sturdy enough for hard Georgia clay and rocks.

I had looked for just this type of hoe forever! I used a hoe like this as a kid and it was the best type to garden with. Unlike standard hoes, the small side gets between plants in a row and the wide side cultivates between the rows. Thank Heavens I found your company.
