As a gardener, I am always looking for new ways to do things better, faster, and easier in the garden. And it’s just a lot of fun to experiment and try new ideas and tools. I recently tried a new tool called the CobraHead. It is a multi-use tool that is designed to dig, furrow, weed, and turn the earth.
The tool has an unusual appearance with its tip in the shape of its name sake, a snake’s head. It has a solid comfortable handle made with durable materials, including recycled materials, according to the manufacturer. The handle of the tool is large and easy to hold. The weight is balanced and the tool feels substantial in your hand.
The CobraHead is an amazingly simple yet effective tool. I used it to weed a small garden bed and it was very quick and efficient, without tiring my arm or hand. The shape of the tool makes it easy to get near the base of your plant to weed without injuring the plant.
I wanted to test the tool on a tougher job so I used it to actually dig up a new bed, tearing out weeds and grass to prepare the soil for petunias. Amazingly, it took me only about 20 minutes to dig up a new bed that is approximately six feet by three feet in size. I also used the tool to dig the holes to plant the petunias. The tool is extremely versatile which is what I really like about it.
I am very comfortable using the original CobraHead garden tool. For a woman, I have large hands with long strong fingers. In contrast, a gardening friend of mine has smaller hands and shorter fingers than I do. She also has several physical handicaps including the after effects of a recent stroke that affected her dominant hand. She was very impressed with the mini CobraHead tool, a smaller version of the original tool, which was easier for her to hold and lighter for her to use. She was as impressed as I was with the tool’s versatility and ease of use.
The CobraHead tool is an easy to use, versatile gardening tool that can be used to dig, furrow, weed, and plant. It’s been a wonderful addition to my gardening tool kit. It’s now my go-to tool. Check out the website for the CobraHead garden tool at https://www.cobrahead.com/
