"My mattock has arrived and I have just tried it out. Brilliant. I am female, and found using a full-sized pick axe was just to much for my body to handle on a regular basis. I am working on a new garden, with some really thuggish weeds, and this mattock is doing severe damage to them. Thank you."

It’s easier on the wrist than many weeding tools because it doesn’t require you to twist or bend your wrist – just bury the head in the ground and pull it toward you.
A hand hoe is your best friend when it comes to weeding and preparing the ground. Can be used to prise out stubborn roots, break up soil and prise out rocks and stones. A simple but sturdy and reliable tool making laborious tasks much easier.
