WEEDING & CULTIVATING TOOLS

EZ-DIGGERTM
The EZ-Diggerr is a unique all-purpose garden tool of Korean origin. It digs, weeds, and thins. Use it to dig holes for planting and transplanting, open and close rows, loosen soil around plants. The curve of the pointed blade allows soil to be thrown to the side like a plow, making it easier to dig holes and trenches. Pulling this tool is easier for digging and loosening soil than pushing a hand spade.
The edges of the blade are used to level, mound and loosen soil and cover seeds.  Use to tear up sod, remove heavily rooted
weeds, turn dirt back from

sidewalk edges and for defining bed edges formulching. It will cut through landscaping fabric to insert plants, grub out weeds, and move and smooth soil and mulch. A versatile garden tool you won't want to be without.

This is my number one favorite tool!
I do a lot of weeding, by hand, and this tool is, without doubt, the best weeder I have ever used! I insert the sharp finely serrated blade (14 points per inch) into the soil to make contact with the weed's root. I can usually lift the entire weed  with its root completely out of the soil by an upward tug with the sickle while pulling the above-ground part of the weed with my other hand. If the weed has a deep taproot, I insert the blade to cut off its root far below the surface and yank the weed out.
HAND SICKLE

 This handy tool is also great for trimming grass in tight spots where the mower won't reach. I use the hand sickle for most all my weeding chores and occasional trimming and dead-heading. The very sharp steel blade retains sharpness even with a lot of digging through soil. The yellow wooden handle makes this tool easy to find when left in the garden.

PURCHASE

This Broadfork is made in Indiana, U.S.A. designed by Richard Cartwright and fabricated by a local master welder.

Multiple tine & spacing alterations are easily arranged on this tool.

Tine Arrangements:

Aerating the soil with your broadfork once or more each year will greatly enhance the long-term productivity of the soil. If your soil is extremely difficult to till (as in heavy clay soils or new ground), it is easier to make several passes, tilling only a few inches deep in each pass. You may also want to start using the 4 tine setup. The 5 tine arrangement with 3.5" spacing is most commonly used for most soil types. The 7 tine configuration with 3" spacing may also be used for extremely fine tilling or for tilling in very loose soils.

Also, using the 7 tines, spaced at 3” apart, you can harvest root crops if you insert along the row or at the edge of a bed and push the broadfork handle nearly all the way to the ground. The potatoes or carrots, etc. will be elevated to the surface for easy harvesting.

ROOT CUTTER SICKLE

Having the same, indestructible, stainless steel blade as the hand sickle above, the root cutter is more heavily serrated and will make short work of larger  tap-rooted weeds and tree seedlings.

 Own the most versatile broadfork on the market!

Using the Cartwright Broadfork Garden Tiller, with its interchangeable tines, is having 3 broadforks in one. (multiple tine and spacing arrangements are possible)

Features of the CARTWRIGHT BROADFORKTM

The Cartwright Broadfork is the toughest on the market! The unique uni-body design assures strength with ease of use (your digging force is transferred more directly to earth with less effort than in broadfork models with verticle handles). The horizontal bar handle is comfortable to use and assures ergonomically correct, efficient soil-working movement.  A boiled linseed oil finish on the white oak handle provides good grip and the finish protects the wood. The 13" hardened tines will penetrate soil to an 11" depth and are  easily removeable with a hand wrench (should they ever bend)--avoiding the expense and trouble of repairs by welding. 

The broadfork is used to loosen soil in preparation for planting or for adding compost or other soil conditioners. It opens and loosens soil while minimizing damage to the soil's living flora and fauna that provide necessary conditions for optimal plant growth.

You'll develop your own digging method or pattern with the broadfork, but I found it helpful to work backwards. By sliding the fork back a few inches after you finish the downward loosening motion...stepping back, positioning for the next insertion you avoid having to lift the fork completely out of the ground and move it forward each time you dig.

Also, particularly if the soil is heavy clay, making two passes, working perpendicular to the first digging direction on the second, will assist in breaking up difficult soil.
