Short-Handled Garden Tools
Short-handled spade, garden fork, and hoe against a white background.

Short-Handled Garden Tools are lightweight (i.e., 24-26 inches long and 1 pound or less) and can be especially helpful for those tending a raised-bed garden or using with a kneeler seat. The wooden handle is long enough to allow wielding the tool with both hands, and a bulb shape at both ends helps prevent the hands from slipping off. There are currently eight drop-grip tools: trowel, daisy grubber, fork, three-tine cultivator, five-tine rake, onion hoe, weeder, and hand plow.
