8 Favorites: Weeding Forks

May 18, 2021

It’s weed season. Why make it a fair fight? To defeat the enemy, I prefer a multi-pronged fork that you can push into crevices to tease out roots. A weeding fork can be the best tool to use between pavers, on a brick path, or in a tight corner. Here’s a roundup of 10 sturdy weeding forks to give you the advantage in the garden:

A three-pronged Sophie Conran Weeder (shown also at the top of the post) is especially good at tackling those weeds that regrow if you leave in any of the roots; $34.95 at Williams Sonoma.

Above: A titanium-tined Weeding Fork with a handmade walnut handle is destined to become a garden shed heirloom. From Sneeboer Tools, the titanium collection was developed by master blacksmith Frank Sneeboer, who described the development process: “The welding process of Titanium is totally different from welding of stainless steel. Different choice between a wire or electrode, different kind of welding gas, different kind of backing gas to prevent incineration of the Titanium etc, etc. The testing process took us about three years, but now we have a perfect result and a perfect foundation to build on in the future.” A titanium weeding fork is €245.60
