I have this variation of a garden hoe pictured below. I'd like to purchase another one but can't find anything like it online. Does anyone know what it's called or where I can find one?

Thanks!

I've never seen one like that! I wonder if it was home made? Is the lower section bolted or welded to the handle? It looks like a cut piece of pipe put on a handle.

One of my favorite types of hoe is the hula hoe or scuffle hoe. They work very well.

Hi Sarah and welcome to NGA!

It reminds me of a tool that my neighbor used when I lived in England .. it was called a "swift cultivator".

Anne, that is pretty much what my favorite tool is like. We call them hula hoes, or scuffle hoes.

Closest thing I have seen is a circle hoe or round hoe. http://www.circlehoe.com/

From what I understand, my aunt bought it several years ago, so I don't think it's homemade, but maybe! It's bolted to the handle. It's really great for edging the flower gardens when the grass starts creeping in.
