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".

"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

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.
