Among market gardeners, the Hoss Wheel Hoe is known as a time-tested, straightforward tool used to easily cultivate, plow, and weed garden beds without its user needing to bend over. At Heirloom Gardener, we love the wheel hoe’s hardwood handles, 15-inch steel wheels, and bronze bushings. The steel wheels and manual nature of this tool make it so you’ll never have to worry about air in the tires or fuel in the tank — just grab the handles and go!

To choose between the double- or single-wheel options, consider whether your garden plan will require the more maneuverable single wheel or would benefit from the double wheel’s stability. One of our favorite perks of the double wheel is the option for it to straddle low-growing rows to plow on both sides of a bed in one fell swoop. Talk about speeding up a chore.
