CobraHead–My Favorite New Gardening Tool

The CobraHead Weeder and Cultivator is advertised as “the best tool in earth.”

cobrahead-weeder-blogThe Easter Bunny didn’t leave any chocolate eggs for me this year, but I didn’t care. Instead, I found a CobraHead in my Easter basket. After using it for the first time yesterday, I decided it’s my favorite new gardening tool.

I was dreading the chore of clearing one flower bed of the grass that had crept in among the Siberian Iris, Basket-of-Gold and other perennials. At one point I considered digging up the entire bed and replanting it.

But that seemed too drastic a measure and I didn’t want to expend that much time or energy. So, I picked up the CobraHead and went to work.  I dug through the soil, pulling the blade toward me and the grass came right up.

It did take a bit of time to clear the bed, but the weeder made it easy to get between the perennials and right to the grass. My next step is to add about 4 inches of mulch to that bed in hopes of keeping the grass and weeds away.

The CobraHead fit comfortably in my hand and it didn’t cause any fatigue. I really appreciate that the handle is made of recycled plastic and organic material.

Now, on to the dandelions.
