Easier weed control with the right tools…is it possible? Yes, and I can personally vouch for it. This year, my weeding experiment has been a success thanks to the Cobra Head weeding tool.
And here’s my Cobra Head tool “in action” — in use in my garden!
Easier Weeding with the Right Tools: the Cobra Head Weeding and Digging Tool
Last year, the Cobra Head weeding tool company contacted me and asked if they could send me a free tool to see if I liked it. If I liked it, would I write about it? Sure, I said, and promised an unbiased review.
Well, I’m absolutely in love with this weeding gadget, and if you know me, it takes a lot to impress me when it comes to weeding.
Here’s the info the company recently released about their tool:
Easier Weed Control with the Right Tools
The right tool makes digging up weeds a whole lot easier. The forged blade of the CobraHead Weeder and Cultivator works like a “steel fingernail” to weed, cultivate, dig, plant, and transplant. The strong, sharp, tempered blade cuts through and breaks up all soils, even the toughest clay and makes short work of cleaning weed-choked gardens. The lightweight, hand-held CobraHead weeder features a comfortable handle made from a mix of recycled plastic and wood fiber. The handle is molded around the unique blade to ensure it can never, ever work loose.
The CobraHead® Long Handle uses the same “steel fingernail” blade as the hand tool, but it is designed with a long ash wood handle to make it easy to weed, cultivate and edge while standing up. All gardeners will find it useful, but older gardeners and those with difficulty kneeling will find it particularly enabling.
The CobraHead® Weeder and Cultivator hand tool sells for $24.95, and the CobraHead® Long Handle is $59.95. Or buy both for $79.95 directly from the manufacturer at www.cobrahead.com.
Why I Love the Cobra Head Weeder and Cultivator
It’s the little things in life that make this gardener happy. Each morning, I spend about 1 to 2 hours gardening before heading up to my desk to work. Most days that time is spent weeding and watering. Weeding, watering, writing…my three w’s, like the three r’s of an old-fashioned school room!
I have a huge garden. I have flower beds, fruit trees, and 12 vegetable garden beds to weed. Using chemicals would make life a lot easier, but I don’t like chemical weed controls and what they may or may not do to the environment. Given that much of my garden consists of edibles, and the other portion sits on top of my water well, you can imagine how loathe I am to use chemicals.
Enter the Cobra Head weeder and cultivator. It has a long, curved, pointed end that you can use to dig up the toughest weeds. I use a long, slim trowel on dandelions, but my Cobra Head weeder gets almost anything else out.
The other night, I wanted to plant my sunflower seeds but I had to punch holes through both landscape fabric and hard-as-a-rock soil along the southern wall of my house. The Cobra Head took care of it. I just whacked the pointed end onto the fabric and voila – it punched a hole through the landscape fabric AND the perfect depth for my sunflowers!
I love the construction of this weeding tool as well. The handle doesn’t hurt my hands, and the steel cultivator has withstood my brick-like soil. The rope on the end also makes it easy to hang in the garage when I am done using it, although most of the time I drop it back into my weeding bucket for tomorrow’s use.
All in all, I give the Cobra Head cultivator and weeder 5 stars out of 5. I’m a fan. I’m thankful I received one as a gift. I wasn’t paid to say I like it — but I do.
The right tools DO make weeding easier. I recommend this one for your weeding projects.
