Weeding might not be anyone’s favorite gardening chore, but there are tools to make this tedious task easier.

Often, your hands are the most efficient way to pull weeds, but even then you should wear gloves to protect them. Garden kneelers or a garden pad will help preserve your knees.

Weeding knives and forks are helpful for extracting tough, thick weeds like wild garlic bulbs.

A small hoe is handy for flower beds and detailed weeding, and a traditional hoe is ideal for large areas. Many specialty hoes come with long handles that reduce bending and back stress.

Herbicides are another tool but these should be used only as a last resort and always in accordance with the label.
