Exclusive | Traditional Cape Cod Weeder is the Best Tool for Tackling Tough Weeds

  • Knife-like tool slices weeds and loosens crusted soil
  • Forged steel blade is securely fastened into a comfortable hardwood handle
  • Each tool comes with our exclusive lifetime guarantee
  • Choice of right- or left-handed version

Used by generations of New England gardeners, Cape Cod Weeders slice weeds just below the soil line and are great for working in tight spaces. Our Gardener’s Lifetime Cape Cod Weeder is hand-forged in Holland from the finest high-carbon Swedish boron steel with a pointed, self-sharpening tip. Unlike flimsy tools that are stamped from thin stainless steel, this weeder is ready for a lifetime of use by serious gardeners. To give it extra strength and durability, a 4" metal tang extends into the handle, which is securely fastened with a welded socket. The handle is made of sustainably grown European ash hardwood. Gardener’s Lifetime Tools are handmade for us by a fourth-generation, family-owned business that has been crafting fine gardening tools for more than a century.

Weeds be gone

By Barbara Master Gardener

from Whitesboro, Texas

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Sharp easy to handle

Cons

  • no cons

Best Uses

  • Weeding In A Tight Place

After breaking my back in three place and pelvis in 6+ places I was told I would be paralyzed for the rest of my life. They placed to rods in my back and once I woke up I haven't stopped moving. I went to school and received my Master Gardner Cert. and have been working at this level ever since. This helps me and makes my life and job easier.

great weeding tool

By Gardener Gill

from Houston, TX

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Removing Crabgrass
  • Removing Nutgrass
  • Removing Tough Weeds
  • Removing Widow's Tears

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Difficult Weeds

    I live in SE TX and had to remove some overgrown weeds (nutgrass, crabgrass, widow's tears) and some St. Augustine grass that had started send runners into a border area. This tool did a great job getting underneath the surface of the dirt to better extract these difficult to pull weeds. It also helped to remove some canna rhizomes from an area where they were no longer wanted. Without this weeder, my weeding would have taken twice as long and would not have been as effective in removing most of the roots of the weeds and unwanted plants.

    Love it!

    By Brenda

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Easy to use
    • Gets Rid Of Weeds Quick

    Cons

      Best Uses

        I have used this all summer. It makes weeding the flower beds much easier. The only issue I have is it is one directional. I thought about buying the left handed one for certain occasions but I have been able to adapt the angle on the right handed one so far.

        Pros

        • Easily Gets In Cracks

          I have a back yard patio where weeds grow between the pavers. The sharp edge does a great job of cutting down to the roots. Even gets into the smaller areas.

            Excellent for weeding around tight spaces and uprooting tiny weeds. Works like a hand held hoe and also hooks deeper roots. I am quite happy with this product.

            The best hand tool ever.

            By Happy in the Garden

            from Raleigh, NC

            Verified Buyer

            Pros

            • Digs Out Weed Roots
            • Doesn't Harm Plant Roots
            • Many Uses

            Cons

            • None that I can find

            Best Uses

            • Weeding

            I have been gardening over 30 years and this is the one tool I reach for most whenever I go out to garden. It is great for digging out weed roots, but by using the sideways motion you can weed right up to the plant without harming the plant roots. I also use it to loosen soil around plants and to dig holes to plant small plants that don't require a shovel. I always have two or three on hand in case I happen to lose it as I have in the past. The one recommendation I would have to improve it is to paint the handle orange!

            My favorite weeder

            By Laura's Gardener

            from Stillwater, Minnesota

            Verified Buyer

            Pros

            • Lightweight
            • Perfect Shaped Blade

            Cons

              Best Uses

                I have many weeders and this is my favorite. The curved blade is perfect for hooking and slicing the roots below the soil. I also use it for loosening soil in planting holes. It's so lightweight that I can use it for an extended amount of time without fatigue.

                Pros

                  Cons

                  • blade not sharp
                  • Blade Too Small

                  Best Uses

                    I used this to weed close to my iris bulbs. The blade is not sharp & is very small. It dug a hole, but did not do well at removing the weeds. I'm returning it.

                      Best Uses

                      • Weeding

                      A simple yet ingenious little tool! It's sort of a mini hand hoe. Just rake through beds and it cuts weeds and grasses off below ground at the roots. Easy to maneuver around plants and in tight spots. It was a bit of an impulse purchase for me, but I'm glad I indulged myself. It's been indispensable for me this spring!

                      My favorite gardening tool!

                      By ag teacher

                      from Northern IL

                      Pros

                      • Blade Can Be Sharpened
                      • Great for weeding
                      • Lightweight but sturdy
                      • Sharp Blade
                      • Versatile

                      Cons

                      • Pricey

                      Best Uses

                      • Breaking Up Soil
                      • Planting
                      • Tilling
                      • Weeding

                      Works wonderfully as a weeder if you draw the blade towards you while keeping it horizontal and just slightly under the soil's surface. The blade easily cuts weeds off then it can be turned to dig deeper into the soil to cultivate further. It's such a simple and handy tool and I was very happy to see GS carrying them. They are pricey but are such good weeders that I like to give them as gifts to gardening friends.
