Best Garden Hand Fork UK Reviews 2020 

Best Garden Hand Fork UK Reviews

Thanks for taking the time to read my article on the best hand garden forks. These are of course the much smaller garden forks, that are primarily used for weeding.

Most of these forks will have 3 or 4 tines and a short handle. They are ideal for getting up close and personal with the earth. These can of course be bought as a single item, but they usually come with a small digging trowel and are sold as a pair.

There are many brands available on the UK market, and they do come in slightly different shapes and sizes. Below we hope to guide you through the choices available.

That way you can decide which is the best type for your own specific needs.

In this article though, we are going to focus on the best garden hand forks for gardens, and which types of hand forks are the best to use.

What Hand Fork Do You Need?

My strong advice is therefore to spend just a little bit extra on your purchases, and buy forks that will last. In other words they won't bend, break or rust.

Hand forks allow you to get close to the soil when working in flower beds, garden borders, tubs, planters etc. They are used to help loosen the soil, for weeding and for planting and transplanting.

They are simply a hand version of the larger garden digging or border fork.

I am someone who enjoys a little gardening. Now I am not someone who spend hours in the garden, but I do like both my front and back gardens to look really nice. Well kept lawns, neatly trimmed hedges, and borders filled with plants, make a huge difference, to how your property looks.
