Famous Gardeners’ Favorite Hoes

Garden hoes have been around nearly as long as gardening. Despite their timeless design, different gardeners reach for certain hoes first.

“I love both of my scuffle hoes — the stirrup hoe and the diamond hoe. They slide just under the soil’s surface, effortlessly killing young weeds and leaving a ‘dust mulch’ to conserve moisture. I keep my hoes clean, dry, and sharp so they’re always ready to save my aching back if I weed early and often!” -Ira Wallace
