The CobraHead Weeder: A Must-Have Garden Tool

Shari Altman

$24.95; CobraHead

All tools are not created equal. Got weeds? You need a CobraHead weeder. Trust me.

It's about that time of the year when the weeds are beginning to get a little out of control. Your mission? Find and destroy. If you have a CobraHead weeder, then weeding will be a snap.

I absolutely love this tool, and while I don't have one of my own yet, I do have a birthday coming up. Hint, hint. This summer I'm interning at a small farm, and my boss carries this tool with her everywhere. It's the best tool for pulling up stubborn weeds without disturbing the plants around them. It's versatile, too, and can be used to dig, cultivate, furrow, and edge. I also love that it's made in the USA (Wisconsin, to be exact) and that the handle is made from recycled plastic.

Whenever I meet folks who have been gardening for years, they always tell me that the CobraHead weeder is their most prized gardening tool. After using it myself, I can see why. It makes weeding a much more pleasant experience.

Do you have a favorite tool for weeding?
