How To: Pick the right tool for weeding the garden

Pick the right tool for weeding the garden

This is a "Southwest Yard and Garden" episode that details the proper selection of gardening tools for fighting seasonal weeds. Horticulturist and host Curtis Smith takes us to meet with Ron Jobe, an Albuquerque Master Gardener, to discuss the options available for such a task. Ron covers the various conditions a gardener is faced with, including the soil and the weeds themselves. Some suggested tools are: the Wing Hoe, Skimming Hoe, Raker, Pointed Hoe, and Stirrup Hoe. The use of each is offered, as well as a list of the best conditions for that particular tool. Each tool is given a on-screen demonstration of how it is used, as well as words of advice from the host on techniques to save energy, prevent new weed growth, and minimize disturbance to the soil.
