You’ll have healthier bushes in no time.

This classic flower and vegetable tiller is heat-treated for strength, has a non-slip grip and has beautiful oak handles and durable carbon steel blades.
It’s no wonder it has high ratings. “This is a super handy tool that’s well-made, tough and gets the job done,” writes five-star reviewer, Joe Bob. “Nice size, balance and weight, and given even minimal care, should last a very long time.”
Japanese Weeding Sickle
Made in Japan, this weeding sickle features a forged high-carbon steel blade that has a very sharp edge. Thanks to the forward weight and sharp edge of the blade, it can tackle most weeding tasks quickly and efficiently. Amazon reviewers have been thrilled with the purchase. After regular use, you can always sharpen the blade.
Edwards Tools Hand Hoe
Built to last with carbon steel, this heavy-duty hoe was designed to be an extremely durable garden hand tool. It features a 4-inch-wide head and an anti-slip, ergonomic grip handle. It’s effective for weeding, moving dirt and planting, which makes it a yard tool that will make your life easier.
Japanese Ninja Claw Rake and Cultivator
This small, yet mighty, five-prong stubby rake is a solid addition to your garden hand tools. It breaks up soil in and around plants easily, thanks to the tough Japanese steel with wood handle. Looking for gardening tools that are a little more high-tech? Right this way.
