A gardener’s secret weapons
Sneeboer Transplanting Trowel
Professional gardeners rave about Sneeboer hand tools, each one made of hand-forged stainless steel and “cockily guaranteed for life.” They’re beautifully balanced, too, “so wrists don’t get achy.”

Nejiri Gama Hoe
For pulling common weeds in and around a garden, there’s no better hand tool than this light, sharp, Japanese-made product. It “can do just about anything,” including cut weeds out of pavement gaps.
Hula-Ho Weeder Cultivator
When weeding a big area, a hula hoe is a “far better” choice than a flat hoe. Its blade skims just below the soil’s surface, cutting on both the push and pull—and the famous “hula wiggle” gets the cutting angle just right.
Felco Pruning Shears
The world’s finest pruners come in various shapes—including the No. 8 above—to fit the user’s hand like a glove. They’ll “execute clean cuts after a decade of hard use,” and the forged-aluminum handles are guaranteed for life.
