Getting out of the weeds...

Choosing the best weeder comes down to your specific gardening needs. While the smaller options like the Lawn Jaws allow for extreme precision and make it easier to remove tough weeds from your yard, products like the Fiskars 4-Claw Weeder are built with a long shaft so you don't even need to kneel or bend down to pull up weeds. However, stand-up weeders are generally a bit pricier than the smaller versions.

The Grampa's Weeder Original Stand Up Weed Puller Tool takes the top spot not just for being an excellent weeder but also because of everything else it can accomplish in your garden. It's attached to a long bamboo handle so you don't have to bend to use it and features a steel 4-claw design that's suitable for all types of soil. While this is an upgraded 2019 model, Grampa's Weeder has been an essential helping hand in gardens since the early 1900s.
