CobraHead Is My Favorite Tool of All!

I know that is a big statement to make. It’s like naming your favorite plant or garden destination. But it is the truth. For years I have been a landless gardener (and I hope you have been following along!) and I simply do not want to cart a lot of tools to the parks. The CobraHead Weeder and Cultivator has been with me since day one of my landless gardening adventures and it has proven to be invaluable.

I edge beds, dig and break up tight, clay-heavy soil, weed, dig holes, cultivate the soil several inches deep, break open bags and loosen root-bound plants. I simply cannot imagine gardening without it. For five years this tool has been with me and it is as strong and solid as the day I received it.

The short handle model is perfect for working in tight spaces because I have a lot of control over the sharp, pointed head. I like that I can loosen soil and mulch and weed under shrubs and large perennials with ease all the while confident that I won’t damage the plant—which can happen when your tool’s handle is too long.

Full disclosure! Horticulture’s online store, carries the CobraHead. I started working with my CobraHead before joining Horticulture’s team and I was in love with this tool back then! I am proud that our publication is offering this highest-quality tool to our readers!
