The heat treated, self-sharpening Hula-Ho® blade works beneath the surface of the soil. The almost effortless back and forth "hula" motion cuts weeds at the roots. Meanwhile, the weeds and soil blend to create a healthy mulch. This Hula-Ho® mini garden weeder and cultivator with 10" wooden handle and cushion grip is a terrific tool for small space gardening and all those tight areas in your yard. Made in the USA.
