With the current landscaping craze for maintenance-heavy, small concrete brick paving, this tool is definitely a back and knee saver for the gardeners charged with caring for it. Can't tell you how many long, painful hours I've spent crawling around on hands and knees weeding brick paths and terraces!
This long-handled tool is designed for weeding between the cracks from a standing position and is sharp on multiple sides to allow you to get into cracks from different angles.
For all you tall folks, Sneeboer hoes have long handles - which means you can work in a more upright position, minimizing potential backache from long or particularly vigorous hoeing sessions!
Now available as a handheld tool: Brick Weeder - Handheld.
All Sneeboer long-handled tools are finished with a round ball at the end of the handle. This serves as a grip and, when scuffling, provides a physical reminder that your hand is at the end of the handle as you slide the tool back and forth. So smart!
