IN MY OPINION. . .
the single most useful all-around garden hand tool is the hand sickle--a fantastic weeder and trimmer.
While the broadfork makes short work of cultivating large areas, the digger/planter
is a handy tool for up close gardening-- moving soil for planting and row formation. It is also a great weeder! You can easily remove newly emerging weeds by scraping the straight edge of the blade across the soil surface.
Another great all-around gardening tool is the needle nose garden shears. It is a light weight pruner and harvester.
Comfort Grip TOPIARY SHEAR

This long handled model has a 6 3/4" long, hardened 5/32" thick steel blade, as above-- but without engraved depth measurements. Wood handle is 8" long.

I've been gardening and landscaping for over a quarter century; and over that period of time I've tried many tools for tilling the soil, weeding and pruning in gardens and orchards and in landscapes. Listed on this page are some of my all-time favorite gardening tools. Useful and durable tools that have served me well, ranging from as low as $11.50 for my favorite weeder (hand sickle) to $190 for a broadfork for soil tilling that is designed for durability and is locally made by an Indiana master welder. Well-made tools help to make better gardeners. I hope you'll find the tool you're looking for right here.
The thin blades of this weeder set are perfect for getting into tight spots to rake out weeds between paving stones.
PATIO KNIFE WEEDER SET
The Claw Weeder
This is my number one favorite tool!
I do a lot of weeding, by hand, and this tool is, without doubt, the best weeder I have ever used! I insert the sharp finely serrated blade (14 points per inch) into the soil to make contact with the weed's root. I can usually lift the entire weed with its root completely out of the soil by an upward tug with the sickle while pulling the above-ground part of the weed with my other hand. If the weed has a deep taproot, I insert the blade to cut off its root far below the surface and yank the weed out. This handy tool is also great for trimming grass in tight spots where the mower won't reach. I use the hand sickle for most all my weeding chores and occasional trimming and dead-heading. The very sharp steel blade retains sharpness even with a lot of digging through soil. The yellow wooden handle makes this tool easy to find when left in the garden.

DIGGER/PLANTER also called EZ-DIGGERTM
The digger/planter is a unique all-purpose garden tool of Korean origin. It digs, weeds, and thins. Use it to dig holes for planting and transplanting, open and close rows for planting and transplanting, loosen soil around plants. The curve of the pointed blade allows soil to be thrown to the side like a plow. This makes it easier to dig holes and trenches. Pulling this tool is easier for digging and loosening soil than pushing a hand spade.The edges of the blade are used to level, mound and loosen soil and cover seeds. Use to tear up sod, remove heavily rooted weeds, turn dirt back from sidewalk edges and for defining bed edges for mulching. It will cut through landscaping fabric to insert plants, grub out weeds, and move and smooth soil and mulch. A versatile garden tool I wouldn't be without.
